Daintree Discovery Centre – Winner on a World Stage

Cairns, Tuesday 3 November 2009

The Daintree Discovery Centre has just been awarded a prestigious international award for ecotourism at the 70th Skal World Congress being held at the Palace of Arts in Budapest, Hungary from 1 – 6 November 2009. The Centre’s tourism submission entitled ‘Sustainable Ecotourism’ was declared the winner of the 8th Annual Skal International Ecotourism Awards in the category of ‘General Countryside’.

Directors Ron and Pam Birkett were presented with the award during the Opening Ceremony overnight.

Competing against tourism businesses from 48 countries around the world, the local Daintree attraction has now been internationally recognized as leading the world in Ecotourism best practice.

The Centre is being specifically recognized for implementing a rigorous Carbon Offset / Bio-sequestration program as a means of minimizing its carbon footprint.

The Daintree Discovery Centre has been informing and educating visitors to the Daintree for more than 20 years.

According to Director Pam Birkett, to be selected as the world’s leading ecotourism business in this internationally prestigious award is something all Australians should be proud of.

‘It’s wonderful to be recognized on the world stage and to know that our best practice ecotourism business in the Daintree is more than competitive with other projects in the world.’

Outclassing entries from Kenya, Bolivia, Costa Rica, Mozambique and Malaysia, North Queensland’s Daintree Eco Lodge and Spa has won the title of World’s Best Eco Lodge at the 2009 World Travel Awards.

Announced in London over the weekend, the Queensland business also took out the award for Australasia’s Leading Green Hotel.

Tourism Minister Peter Lawlor says the award wins are a stunning result for the Tropical North Queensland property.

"The World Travel Awards are described by the Wall Street Journal as the 'Oscars' of the global travel and tourism industry," Lawlor says.

"The win follows a vote by 183,000 travel agencies, tour and transport companies and tourism organisations in more than 160 countries across the globe,” he says.

This latest accolade follows the lodge’s win in the 2009 SpaFinder Readers’ Choice Awards, where it beat out 15,000 competitors to take out World’s Best Environmental Spa and World’s Best Boutique Spa categories.

According to Lawlor, Daintree Eco Lodge’s string of prestigious awards is helping to raise awareness of Queensland and boost the State’s tourism.

"Tourism Queensland markets four distinct themes which capture a range of Queensland tourism experiences and destinations: 'islands and beaches', 'natural encounters', 'adventure' and 'Queensland lifestyle'," he says.

"As part of this approach, Tourism Queensland in part focuses on eco and Indigenous tourism experiences directly through a range of PR, marketing and development activities and works with tourism operators throughout the state, including Daintree Eco Lodge and Spa."
