52 Capricorn Tourism businesses Best in Queensland!

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:

  • Sandstone Park Carnarvon Gorge
  • Empire Apartment Hotel, Rockhampton
  • Korte’s Resort, Rockhampton
  • Capricorn Caves
  • Fisherman’s Beach Holiday Park, Emu Park
  • Villa Mar Colina, Yeppoon
  • NRMA Capricorn Yeppoon Holiday Park
  • Discovery Parks – Rockhampton

As of midday 1 June 2020 Queensland has entered Stage 2 of the COVID-19 Recovery Roadmap and we are OPEN FOR BUSINESS for Queensland residents and full-time travellers!

We are fully compliant with the COVID-SAFE program and have additional safety and cleaning measures in place to make your stay safe, comfortable and enjoyable.

We understand that we still live in a time of relative uncertainty and, with that in mind, we have decided to introduce a “Book with Confidence Guarantee”.

What is the Book with Confidence Guarantee?

The Book with Confidence Guarantee is applicable if you are no longer able to travel due to COVID-19 related developments. For example: you become sick with COVID-19 or someone immediately connected to you does and you are forced into self-isolation, or the Alert Level changes meaning travel becomes impossible, or there is a Government mandate for you not to travel in your local area/region or the area you intend to travel to. In these and other similar cases there will be no charges levied to make changes to your booking dates. We will provide a 12-month credit or full refund (in exceptional circumstances, determined on a case by case basis).

Please be aware that where your request to amend a booking is not linked to COVID-19 developments, normal T&C’s will apply.


Border Restrictions

At this stage the Queensland border remains closed to interstate travellers but, according to the Queensland COVID-19 Recovery Roadmap, the planned reopening is 10 July 2020. We look forward to welcoming all our regular winter travellers after that date.


If you are ready to stay, you can BOOK ONLINE.

Our office is operating on restricted opening hours (9am to 12pm and 2pm to 5pm). If you can’t get hold of us during these hours, leave a message and we will get back to you ASAP or jump on our website.

Stay safe and we hope to see you soon at Fisherman’s Beach Holiday Park.
