The eco business qualified for the national awards after it took out gold in the same category at the 2017 Queensland Tourism Awards.

Tasmanian Walking Company took out gold in the ecotourism category with Murray River Walk from South Australia picking up silver.

Tourism Minister Kate Jones congratulated the 10 Queensland businesses and events who took home awards.

"Once again Queensland tourism has shone on the national stage - proving there's no better place in Australia for a holiday or to attend an event,” she said.

"The strength of our tourism industry relies on our operators and our product so to see so many Queenslanders recognised on a national stage is testament to the work they do.”
