The winners of one of Australia’s premier tourism awards have been announced, with two Western Australian attractions picking up accolades.
Anyone who has booked flights to Perth may want to visit one of the two attractions in Western Australia that were honoured at the 2010 Gourmet Traveller Travel Awards.
Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef picked up the title of best green tourism initiative. Described as an “exclusive safari camp”, it offers tourists a chance to stay in the sand dunes in the Cape Range National Park, just metres from the sea and its coral reefs.
The Voyager Estate on the Margaret River was awarded the prize for the best wine tourism experience.
As well as its vineyards, the estate is also home to landscaped gardens, a wine and gift shop and a restaurant that prides itself on producing dishes using local produce.
Editor of Gourmet Traveller Anthea Loucas commented that the awards are “a tribute to the innovation, vision and dedication of Australia’s most impressive tourism operators”.
The Qualia Resort on Hamilton Island was the stand-out winner of the night, picking up the awards for best spa and best hotel villas/suites.
