Big award wins for NQ properties

Orpheus Island water's edge

It was a clean sweep for Morris Group properties at the recent 2021 North Queensland Tourism and Events Awards.

In a competitive field of providers in the Townsville North Queensland region, The Ville Resort-Casino took out the top prize in the accommodation category, with Orpheus Island Lodge coming in as runner-up. The awards aim to recognise and foster excellence in the local tourism industry.

Meanwhile, Northern Escape Collection has also been recognised in the Traveller Review Awards, with accolades for both Orpheus Island Lodge and Daintree Ecolodge.

To be a winner in the awards, the properties needed to have received an average review score between eight and10. Orpheus Island currently holds a guest review rating of 9.8; while Daintree Ecolodge has a score of 8.8.

As well as their success in the awards both properties have also recently been added to the prestigious Best of Queensland Experiences program which recognises tourism operators across the state who deliver exceptional customer experiences.
