[Melbourne, 18 March 2024] – Air Adventure, one of Australia’s leading golf tour operators, has been awarded Gold at the esteemed Qantas Australian Tourism Awards for Best Tour & Transport Operator. This prestigious accolade not only recognises Air Adventure’s commitment to excellence but also highlights the flourishing golf tourism market in Australia, particularly in Tasmania.

The Qantas Australian Tourism Awards, known for recognizing excellence and innovation in the tourism sector, honoured Air Adventure for its outstanding contributions in the category of Best Tour and Transport Operator. This victory underscores Air Adventure’s dedication to providing exceptional golf experiences and highlights the growth and demand within Australia’s golf tourism industry.

At the heart of this success story are Tasmania’s extraordinary golf courses, including Barnbougle Dunes, Lost Farm, Cape Wickham, and Ocean Dunes. Nestled amidst Tasmania’s breathtaking coastal landscapes, these world-class courses have garnered international acclaim and serve as magnets for golf enthusiasts worldwide.

Air Adventure’s Ultimate Barnbougle King Island trip has become their most popular trip, where they connect the four Barnbougle and King Island courses utilising their luxury Pilatus PC12 aircraft. They organize everything for golfers, from flights, accommodation, golf, transfers, and restaurant bookings. In addition to this flagship trip, Air Adventure also offers Barnbougle and King Island-only trips and runs popular events such as the King Island Pro-Am and the EF King Island Classic.

Expressing gratitude for the recognition, Jon Perrett, General Manager of Air Adventure Golf, stated, “We are honoured to receive the Gold award, which is a testament to the collective efforts of our team and our partners in Tasmania’s golf tourism sector. This achievement not only validates our commitment to excellence but also under pins Tasmania’s emergence as a premier golfing destination.”

John Dyer, Managing Director of Air Adventure, emphasized the significance of Tasmania’s golf tourism market, saying, “Tasmania’s stunning courses and unparalleled landscapes have catapulted the region onto the global golfing map. Our win at the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards highlights the growing demand for luxury golf experiences in Tasmania and reflects the market’s strength and potential.”

Indeed, the success of Air Adventure and other stakeholders in Tasmania’s golf tourism sector mirrors a broader trend of growth and expansion within Australia’s tourism industry. As more travellers seek unique and immersive experiences, Tasmania’s world-class golf courses continue to captivate attention and drive tourism revenue.
