It’s official 52 local tourism businesses from across the Tropic of Capricorn (29 Capricorn Coast, 17 Rockhampton, 6 Central Highlands) have been named as 2019 Best Of Queensland Experiences!
Fisherman's Beach Holiday Park were one of the operators that achieved a top score of 100!
The Best of Queensland Experiences Program is an innovative approach to delivering a consumer-led, experience focused, destination delivered strategy for Queensland.
Tourism and Events Queensland in partnership with the Regional Tourism Organisations, the Queensland Tourism Industry Council and the Department of Innovation and Tourism Industry Development, have been thrilled to announce more than 2,400 Queensland operators across the state who have received their official 2019 results of the Best of Queensland Experiences Program.
Capricorn Enterprise chief executive Mary Carroll said “we are thrilled that our region has achieved 50% more operators identified as Best of Queensland Experiences compared to March 2018, which is thanks to hard work and collaboration by our local tourism industry.”
Operators are assessed against an independent set of criteria that incorporates online customer reviews, responds to consumer expectations and reflects industry best practice. Operators who have a live listing on the Australian Tourism Data Warehouse (ATDW) are assessed against 5 weighted criteria (including social media presence, consistent positive customer reviews, online booking platforms, accreditation and RTO membership) and operators require 80 points out of 100 to be identified as a Best of Queensland Experience.
Ms Carroll said “It is fantastic to see eight out of our 52 Best of Queensland Experiences achieving a top score of 100 overall, from Carnarvon Gorge to the Capricorn Caves, Rockhampton and along the Capricorn Coast. Our holiday parks can be very proud of their achievements, representing four of the eight operators reaching a top score of 100. Another 17 of our operators scored 95 out of 100 overall, which means HALF of our Best of Queensland Experiences are above 95 which is an incredible achievement!”
Operators who achieved a top score of 100 are:
52 Capricorn Tourism businesses Best in Queensland!

As of 10am Monday 30 March we will be closed to all holiday and leisure travellers. Our camp kitchens and amenities blocks will be closed.

- Transit sites are available for one night - for those that need a stopover while they head home, or to their final isolation destination as quickly as possible.
- Isolation sites are available at a heavily discounted rate - minimum 14 days to bunker down in our beautiful village
You will need to be fully self-contained (shower and toilet) but you will have access to our dump point and self-serve laundry. These facilities will be sanitised in line with the latest COVID-19 parameters. Park reception functions will be conducted via phone, email and online but an onsite manager is still present for security and emergencies.
We also have a limited number of self-contained cabins – also at discounted rates.
Best of all, if you have a dog – they are welcome too!
