Tasmanian Walking Company recognised for eco credentials

The team at Tasmanian Walking Company (TWC) celebrated their first ever national awards win and were recognised for their eco credentials at the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards 2015 held in Melbourne last month.

The company won a Gold medal for Ecotourism and a Silver Qantas Award for Excellence in Sustainable Tourism for their Bay of Fires Lodge Walk, Cradle Mountain Huts Walk – both Great Walks of Australia – and the new Wineglass Bay Sail Walk.

With their deep commitment to preserving the environment in which they operate, the Company was humbled to receive this recognition for their work in offering guests the opportunity to immerse themselves in the pristine Tasmanian landscapes in the northern and southern regions of the state.

Tasmania took home a record twenty wins across all the categories – seven gold, nine silver, three bronze and Bruny Island Cruises was inducted into the Hall of Fame. Read more at http://www.etbtravelnews.com
