Daintree Discovery Centre Bags Double GOLD at the State's Top Tourism Awards.

The world-class Daintree Discovery Centre has won Gold in the categories of ‘Tourist Attraction’ and ‘the Steve Irwin Award for Ecotourism’ at the recent Queensland Tourism Awards, held at the Brisbane Convention Centre on Friday night.

The Centre was one of four Daintree businesses to take out top honours at the prestigious awards, with fellow Daintree Operators Ocean Safari and Cape Tribulation Beach House Resort also collecting Gold awards for their outstanding tourism products.

Daintree Discovery Centre’s Marketing Manager, Adam Smith, attended the 900 strong Gala Event with wife Jodie, and was delighted to collect the awards on behalf of the Centre.

“It was such a thrill for the Daintree Discovery Centre to be recognised once again by the state’s top tourism bodies as the leader in its field, not only for Ecotourism, but also as a fun, professional and exciting tourist attraction.”

“Founding Directors Pam and Ron Birkett began this world-class facility 26 years ago and the continued industry recognition is a true testament to the vision they have for sustainable ecotourism.”

“We couldn’t have done it without the dedication of our wonderful staff and the support of our local Tourism Organisations, TTNQ and Tourism Port Douglas Daintree. We are particularly proud to be part of an amazing destination, north of the Daintree River, that was awarded such a high concentration of Gold Awards.”

“We invite everyone to come and share what has been identified as one of the state’s top tourism experiences, in the heart of the world’s oldest rainforest.”

The Centre was awarded alongside many industry heavyweights including Bindi Irwin, who took out the “Young Achiever Award”.

The Daintree’s dominance on the night catapulted Tropical North Queensland’s award tally to 19, making it the most awarded region on the night, re-affirming its position as the premier tourism destination in the state
