SeaLink has won two awards at the 2022 WA Tourism Awards –the gold medal for the Major Tour and Transport Operator and the prestigious Sir David Brand Award for the best tourism business in Western Australia.
The WA Tourism Awards recognise businesses, individuals and destinations across 26 categories for their commitment to excellence. The Sir David Brand Award is the highest tourism honour in Western Australia awarded to the best tourism business across all the gold medallists in the 26 categories.
SeaLink WA operates three well-known tourism brands in Western Australia -SeaLink Rottnest Island, Captain Cook Cruises on the Swan River, and Swan Valley Tours.
SeaLink’s Chief Operating Officer, Donna Gauci, congratulated all the finalists and said the industry accolades are testament to the commitment of the entire SeaLink team to deliver the best possible experience for all our customers.
“We are all extremely proud of our SeaLink team in Western Australia to win both the Major Tour and Transport Operator of the year and the Sir David Brand Award, which is the highest accolade for tourism in the state,” she said.
“Like all tourism operators over the last two-and-half years we have faced immense challenges with domestic and international border closures, and people who have left the tourism industry.
“However, our SeaLink team have consistently focused on delivering a brilliant customer experience with every guest that we welcome on board.
As a category gold medallist, SeaLink will go on to represent WA at the 2022 Australian Tourism Awards.
SeaLink WA General Manager, Andrew Lane said “I am immensely proud of our team here in Western Australia.
“We have the best job in the world connecting and sharing some of the best tourism destinations WA has to offer including Rottnest Island, Perth CBD and Fremantle, the Swan River and Swan Valley.”
“Being awarded as the best tourism operator in WA ahead of 25 of the state’s finest operators is an outstanding achievement and a testament to our team’s commitment to consistently go above and beyond for our customers,” he said.
“We look forward to representing both SeaLink and West Australian tourism at the national tourism awards,” Mr Lane said.
