More than 40 local tourism operators have been acknowledged as part of a state-wide initiative rewarding exceptional customer experience.
Led by Tourism and Events Queensland, the Best of Queensland Experiences Program assesses tourism products against an independent set of criteria that total 100 points.
Customer reviews, website booking functionality, social media presence and relevant memberships and accreditations are all factored in when determining the result.
The Hinkler Hall of Aviation and Fairymead House Sugar History Museum were just some of the local facilities to receive top marks in the 2022 initiative.
Bundaberg Region Mayor Jack Dempsey congratulated the team at both facilities on their achievement.
“It is an outstanding achievement for both attractions to have received 100 points in this program,” he said.
“The fantastic result demonstrates a keen commitment to meet customer expectations and uphold industry best practice as shown by all team members.
“I would like to thank the Council staff at both attractions for their enthusiasm in providing exceptional customer experiences and maintaining high standards of customer service.”
Local tourism operators recognised for providing great experiences
The Best of Queensland Experiences Program is assessed on an annual basis and was developed in partnership with the state’s Regional Tourism Organisations, the Queensland Tourism Industry Council and the Department of Tourism, Innovation and Sport.
Tourism Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said this year, TEQ introduced the Stamp of Recognition to make it even easier for visitors to find quality tourism experiences.
“This program is a one-of-a-kind in Australia and shows the commitment of Queensland tourism operators to excellence and world-class holiday experiences,” Mr Hinchliffe said
Visitors can find the Best of Queensland Experiences by looking for the Stamp of Recognition on the Queensland.com website and tour operator marketing and social media.
