The awards are organised by the Queensland Tourism Industry Council, the peak body for tourism and hospitality in this state, with Tourism Queensland an award partner and sponsored by Queensland Airports Limited.
“We have been delighted to be finalists in these awards in each of the past two years, so this win is even sweeter,” said Narrows Escape co-owner Mark Skinner.
Next March, Mark and Joanne will travel to Cairns where they will compete in ‘the biggie’, the Qantas Tourism Awards in their category (Hosted Accommodation) as the Queensland finalist.
Narrows Escape Rainforest Retreat is a boutique four and a half star rated, eco accredited luxury resort at Montville in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.
Joanne and Mark operate the six fully self-contained cottages set in two hectares of pristine rainforest in the Blackall Ranges.
The facility is designed as a couples retreat, for people seeking the seclusion and tranquillity of nature in sensitive environmental surrounds.
Each cottage has a separate Queen size bedroom, ensuite, open plan lounge, dining room and kitchen.
