“Queensland has literally scooped the pool at the Australian Tourism Awards in Sydney tonight.

This is Queensland’s best result at the national tourism awards since 2018 and again confirms Queensland as Australia’s leading visitor destination.

Congratulations to all Queensland Awards winners and finalists on an absolutely magnificent result.

I want to thank Queensland tourism operators and their communities for their hard work and commitment to building back better and delivering truly outstanding Queensland visitor experiences.

The resilience, commitment to success and creativity of Queensland tourism businesses really is second to none.

It’s terrific to see tourism and event operators the Palaszczuk Government has supported through funding initiatives receiving the national recognition for excellence we know they deserve.

The Queensland tourism industry’s incredible awards success sets the benchmark for other states to follow on our runway to the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.”

Tourism and Events Queensland CEO Patricia O’Callaghan said:

“Queensland’s tourism skyline is full of stars.

To be taking home the lion’s share of awards at a national level is an outstanding achievement and shows just how dedicated our tourism businesses are right across the state to offer the very best to visitors from around the globe.

With the country’s best attractions, tours, events and places to stay, a Queensland holiday should be top of every Aussie’s must-do list.

On behalf of our industry, I offer sincere congratulations to all of the Queensland finalists and award winners tonight. Your passionate and incredible work do our industry proud.”

QTIC CEO Brett Fraser said:

“After a stellar year in which Queensland was Australia’s number one domestic visitor destination, it’s phenomenal to see so many of our operators recognised on the national stage.

We’ve always known Queensland is home to some of the best events, accommodation providers and experiences in Australia, and now it’s official. For Queensland to be awarded gold, silver, or bronze in 16 of the 25 categories is exceptional.

I invite all Queenslanders to spend their next weekend getaway or holiday exploring their own backyard and discovering these award-winning tourism experiences.

While all the winners and finalists can be congratulated, we’re especially proud of Queensland’s remarkable success at this years’ national awards.”

Tropical North Queensland Accessibility Statement

Accessibility Statement

  • tourism.tropicalnorthqueensland.org.au
  • July 18, 2024

Compliance status

We firmly believe that the internet should be available and accessible to anyone, and are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability.

To fulfill this, we aim to adhere as strictly as possible to the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) at the AA level. These guidelines explain how to make web content accessible to people with a wide array of disabilities. Complying with those guidelines helps us ensure that the website is accessible to all people: blind people, people with motor impairments, visual impairment, cognitive disabilities, and more.

This website utilizes various technologies that are meant to make it as accessible as possible at all times. We utilize an accessibility interface that allows persons with specific disabilities to adjust the website’s UI (user interface) and design it to their personal needs.

Additionally, the website utilizes an AI-based application that runs in the background and optimizes its accessibility level constantly. This application remediates the website’s HTML, adapts Its functionality and behavior for screen-readers used by the blind users, and for keyboard functions used by individuals with motor impairments.

If you’ve found a malfunction or have ideas for improvement, we’ll be happy to hear from you. You can reach out to the website’s operators by using the following email

Screen-reader and keyboard navigation

Our website implements the ARIA attributes (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) technique, alongside various different behavioral changes, to ensure blind users visiting with screen-readers are able to read, comprehend, and enjoy the website’s functions. As soon as a user with a screen-reader enters your site, they immediately receive a prompt to enter the Screen-Reader Profile so they can browse and operate your site effectively. Here’s how our website covers some of the most important screen-reader requirements, alongside console screenshots of code examples:

Screen-reader optimization: we run a background process that learns the website’s components from top to bottom, to ensure ongoing compliance even when updating the website. In this process, we provide screen-readers with meaningful data using the ARIA set of attributes. For example, we provide accurate form labels; descriptions for actionable icons (social media icons, search icons, cart icons, etc.); validation guidance for form inputs; element roles such as buttons, menus, modal dialogues (popups), and others. Additionally, the background process scans all the website’s images and provides an accurate and meaningful image-object-recognition-based description as an ALT (alternate text) tag for images that are not described. It will also extract texts that are embedded within the image, using an OCR (optical character recognition) technology. To turn on screen-reader adjustments at any time, users need only to press the Alt+1 keyboard combination. Screen-reader users also get automatic announcements to turn the Screen-reader mode on as soon as they enter the website.

These adjustments are compatible with all popular screen readers, including JAWS and NVDA.

Keyboard navigation optimization: The background process also adjusts the website’s HTML, and adds various behaviors using JavaScript code to make the website operable by the keyboard. This includes the ability to navigate the website using the Tab and Shift+Tab keys, operate dropdowns with the arrow keys, close them with Esc, trigger buttons and links using the Enter key, navigate between radio and checkbox elements using the arrow keys, and fill them in with the Spacebar or Enter key.Additionally, keyboard users will find quick-navigation and content-skip menus, available at any time by clicking Alt+1, or as the first elements of the site while navigating with the keyboard. The background process also handles triggered popups by moving the keyboard focus towards them as soon as they appear, and not allow the focus drift outside it.

Users can also use shortcuts such as “M” (menus), “H” (headings), “F” (forms), “B” (buttons), and “G” (graphics) to jump to specific elements.

Disability profiles supported in our website

  • Epilepsy Safe Mode: this profile enables people with epilepsy to use the website safely by eliminating the risk of seizures that result from flashing or blinking animations and risky color combinations.
  • Visually Impaired Mode: this mode adjusts the website for the convenience of users with visual impairments such as Degrading Eyesight, Tunnel Vision, Cataract, Glaucoma, and others.
  • Cognitive Disability Mode: this mode provides different assistive options to help users with cognitive impairments such as Dyslexia, Autism, CVA, and others, to focus on the essential elements of the website more easily.
  • ADHD Friendly Mode: this mode helps users with ADHD and Neurodevelopmental disorders to read, browse, and focus on the main website elements more easily while significantly reducing distractions.
  • Blindness Mode: this mode configures the website to be compatible with screen-readers such as JAWS, NVDA, VoiceOver, and TalkBack. A screen-reader is software for blind users that is installed on a computer and smartphone, and websites must be compatible with it.
  • Keyboard Navigation Profile (Motor-Impaired): this profile enables motor-impaired persons to operate the website using the keyboard Tab, Shift+Tab, and the Enter keys. Users can also use shortcuts such as “M” (menus), “H” (headings), “F” (forms), “B” (buttons), and “G” (graphics) to jump to specific elements.

Additional UI, design, and readability adjustments

  • Font adjustments – users, can increase and decrease its size, change its family (type), adjust the spacing, alignment, line height, and more.
  • Color adjustments – users can select various color contrast profiles such as light, dark, inverted, and monochrome. Additionally, users can swap color schemes of titles, texts, and backgrounds, with over seven different coloring options.
  • Animations – person with epilepsy can stop all running animations with the click of a button. Animations controlled by the interface include videos, GIFs, and CSS flashing transitions.
  • Content highlighting – users can choose to emphasize important elements such as links and titles. They can also choose to highlight focused or hovered elements only.
  • Audio muting – users with hearing devices may experience headaches or other issues due to automatic audio playing. This option lets users mute the entire website instantly.
  • Cognitive disorders – we utilize a search engine that is linked to Wikipedia and Wiktionary, allowing people with cognitive disorders to decipher meanings of phrases, initials, slang, and others.
  • Additional functions – we provide users the option to change cursor color and size, use a printing mode, enable a virtual keyboard, and many other functions.

Browser and assistive technology compatibility

We aim to support the widest array of browsers and assistive technologies as possible, so our users can choose the best fitting tools for them, with as few limitations as possible. Therefore, we have worked very hard to be able to support all major systems that comprise over 95% of the user market share including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera and Microsoft Edge, JAWS and NVDA (screen readers).

Notes, comments, and feedback

Despite our very best efforts to allow anybody to adjust the website to their needs. There may still be pages or sections that are not fully accessible, are in the process of becoming accessible, or are lacking an adequate technological solution to make them accessible. Still, we are continually improving our accessibility, adding, updating and improving its options and features, and developing and adopting new technologies. All this is meant to reach the optimal level of accessibility, following technological advancements. For any assistance, please reach out to

Red Cat led students through curriculum-related education activities out to the reef, including the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority’s new ‘Be a Marine Biologist for the Day’ education program – a new initiative to build students’ citizen science skills and increase connections with the reef.

Other Queensland winners who have been supported by the department are Julia Creek Caravan Park who took out silver in the Caravan and Holiday Parks category and the InterContinental Hayman Island Resort, winning bronze for 5 Star Accommodation.

2022 North Queensland Tourism and Events Award Winners

14th October 2022

The 2022 North Queensland Tourism and Events Awards acknowledge the incredible work of the tourism and events industry and the important role this sector plays in our local economy.

Townsville Enterprise Director Visitor Economy and Marketing, Lisa Woolfe said the tourism industry is an important part of the region’s fabric.

“The North Queensland Tourism and Events Awards recognise the outstanding contribution of our tourism and events operators and acknowledges the exceptional experiences they provide visitors and locals,” Mrs Woolfe said.

“We received more than 17,000 votes over the four-week voting period across the Award’s six People’s Choice Categories – a record number for this event and a great sign of support for our industry.”

“For the second consecutive year, The Ville Resort-Casino and Texas Longhorn Tours received the award for Accommodation and Tours and Attractions, a testament to the experience they offer our visitors and locals. The Ville also received the most votes from visitors and locals during our voting period.”

“It was great to see the North Queensland Cowboys (Cowboys v Broncos) receive the Best Major Event and the North Australian Festival of Arts as the runner up. A perfect example of the diversity of our region’s events calendar and the important role the Cowboys play in visitation to the city.”

Magnetic Island came out on top for the highest-scoring reviews in the tours category.

“Jetski Hire Magnetic Island, Pilgrim Sailing and Magnetic Island’s Best Bus Tour are all family-run tourism operators and it was wonderful to recognise them. Magnetic Island continually punches above its weight when it comes to the exceptional destination experiences and it’s clear our locals and visitors agree,” Mrs Woolfe said.

“We were also thrilled to announce Izzy Bee from Netflix’s Izzy’s Koala World, Magnetic Island local and our latest tourism campaign Ambassador as the recipient of the Young Achiever Award.”

“Izzy, at only 15, is the youngest recipient ever to receive the Young Achiever Award at the North Queensland Tourism and Events Awards. She is recognised and loved across Australia and around the world and we are proud of the work she has done for the rehabilitation and rescue of koalas on Magnetic Island.”

For the first time, 100% score Best of Queensland operators were acknowledged at the North Queensland Tourism and Events Awards.

“The Best of Queensland Program was implemented by Tourism and Events Queensland to encourage tourism operators to reach certain benchmarks for visitor experience, reviews and online presence. There are 80 tourism operators within our region with Best of Queensland status and we are thrilled to acknowledge Aquascene, The Ville, Big Mama Sailing, Billabong Sanctuary and Orpheus Island Lodge on achieving 100% Best of Queensland scores,” said Mrs Woolfe.

The Richard Power Award for Outstanding Contribution by an Individual was won by Laurie Murphy. The award recognises extraordinary personal and professional achievement and contribution to the local tourism and events industry.

Townsville Enterprise CEO, Claudia Brumme-Smith congratulates Laurie Murphy for receiving this highly regarded award.

“Laurie has dedicated her career to tourism research and the development of this important industry sector,” Mrs Brumme-Smith said.

“For more than three decades, Laurie has taught an excess of 1,000 students in the tourism and events field. Many of these students are now leaders in the tourism and events industry in Australia and abroad.”

“Laurie’s engagement with the tourism and events industry extends beyond her teaching and research activities. She is on several local committees and has worked with industry to secure grants and funding for various projects which have directly benefitted our Townsville North Queensland tourism industry.”

The gala event was held at The Ville Resort-Casino and was attended by 180 local tourism industry and business representatives. The 2022 North Queensland Tourism Awards was sponsored by Simon George and Sons, The Ville Resort-Casino, Southern Cross Austereo and Designer Life.
