At the 2010 Brolga Northern Territory Tourism Awards ceremony held in Darwin on Saturday 20th November, Wayoutback Desert Safaris walked away with a Brolga in the ‘Tour and/or Transport Operator’ category. The Brolga Awards is the official tourism awards program for the Northern Territory, recognising and encouraging tourism businesses that strive for excellence in every area of their operation. A Brolga award is the industry’s highest accolade and the recipients represent the best products and services in the Northern Territory. Winners of the 2010 Brolga Northern Territory Tourism Awards automatically become finalists in the 2010 Qantas Australian Tourism Awards. The competition is open to tourism operators, industry suppliers and outstanding individuals, who prepare a submission in response to a series of questions and criteria that measure business excellence.

TQUAL Accreditation

What is TQUAL?

The TQUAL mark is the first National symbol of quality for tourism products and services in Australia and being associated with the TQUAL mark not only means that operators are identified as offering quality tourism products, but it also shows consumers that TQUAL accredited operators are among the best in their field. Why was TQUAL Accreditation Introduced?

There are currently over 20 programs within the tourism industry that are involved in accrediting, rating or certifying tourism products and services. While these programs go a long way towards encouraging quality, the large number can cause confusion and dilute the potential recognition of each program among tarvellers. What’s in it for Travellers? A National brand of quality will enable consumers to recognise and then make better informed choices about which companies they engage with, giving consumers comfort that their expectations of the tourism experience will be met. TQUAL is about delivering on the customer quality promise.

Advanced Eco Tourism Accredited

The definition of ecotourism adopted by Ecotourism Australia is: "Ecotourism is ecologically sustainable tourism with a primary focus on experiencing natural areas that fosters environmental and cultural understanding, appreciation and conservation". After many months under operational assessment, Wayoutback Desert Safaris have been awarded with the highest level of accreditation under the Eco Certification Program, 'Advanced Ecotourism Certification'. Wayoutback Desert Safaris is one of the very few Tour Operations located in the Red Centre (Alice Springs) visiting Uluru (Ayers Rock), Kata Tjuta (the Olgas), Watarrka (Kings Canyon), Palm Valley & the West MacDonnell regions with Advanced Eco-Tourism status level. What is the Eco Certification Program? The Eco Certification Program is a 0-WayOutBack/rld first. It has been developed by industry for industry, addressing the need to identify genuine ecotourism and nature tourism operators in Australia.

The Eco Certification Program is now being exported to the rest of the 0-WayOutBack/rld as the International Ecotourism Standard. What does it mean to the Consumer? Ecotourism and nature tourism certification provide industry, protected area managers, local communities and travellers with an assurance that a certified product is backed by a commitment to best practice, ecological sustainability, natural area management and the provision of quality ecotourism experiences. Where can I learn more about Eco-Tourism? Eco Tourism Australia is a non profit Organisation. For more information, feel free to visit their website at www.ecotourism.org.au.
