PUMPHOUSE POINT WINS GOLD AT 2021 NATIONAL TOURISM AWARDS
PUMPHOUSE POINT WINS GOLD AT 2021 AUSTRALIAN TOURISM AWARDS
‘BEST UNIQUE ACCOMMODATION’
The team at Pumphouse Point is incredibly proud to announce that we have won GOLD in the Unique Accommodation category in the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards 2021. The announcement was made on the Sunshine Coast in March, after Pumphouse Point won the Tasmanian accolade in October last year.
- SILVER – Sierra Escape – NSW
- BRONZE – Woodhouse Activity Centre – SA
The prestigious awards celebrate and encourage professionalism, sustainability and innovation in tourism, whilst also providing a benchmark for industry best practice. They also placed an emphasis on resilience and innovation throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
TICT chief executive Luke Martin said, “These awards are notoriously difficult to enter and even harder to win, with nominees expected to submit a 12,000-word entry before a site visit and judging.”
Managing Director Simon Current said of the win, “We just can’t thank the team enough, it’s all them, and we are just so proud of everything we’ve been able to achieve in the last few years.”
It is such an honour after such a tumultuous few years with COVID-19 wreaking havoc on the tourism industry. We’d like to offer a sincere thanks to every person who has contributed to and supported Pumphouse Point on this journey and congratulate other Tasmanian operators such as Saffire Freycinet, Pennicott Wilderness Journeys, Coal River Farm, Mures Tasmania and Gordon River Cruises for their gold awards as well.
