Hinchinbrook Shire Council Shire Council have recognised the talents of Hinchinbrook Marine Cove Resort owners Michael and Linda McKeown, who recently won the Australian Good Food and Travel Guide Readers’ Choice Award 2017 for Townsville and Surrounds. For two years running, the ocean-side resort in Lucinda, near Ingham in Queensland, has been selected by readers of Australia’s largest database of restaurants, accommodation and other travel and tourism information.
Other businesses singled out by the Hinchinbrook Council for winning regional or national recognition included Michael Devietti of Devietti Holden and the Herbert River Express, which was judged Community Newspaper of the Year in the 2016 News Corp Australia News Awards for Excellence in Editorial.
Linda McKeown, speaking at her resort overlooking the Hinchinbrook Island National Park, thanked Hinchinbrook Shire Council Mayor Ramon Jayo, Deputy Mayor Mary Brown, the council and council staff for recognising the resort’s efforts to increase tourism in the shire, which was one of the most picturesque regions in Queensland and Australia.
Micheal said it was great to know that the council supported the efforts undertaken by the Resort, including its social media presence on both Facebook and Twitter.
The Hinchinbrook Marine Cove Resort in Lucinda, Queensland, has been named Australian Good Food and Travel Guide (AGFG) Readers’ Choice winners for 2017. It is the second year in a row that the ocean-side resort overlooking the famed Hinchinbrook Island National Park has been selected by readers of Australia’s largest database of restaurants, accommodation and other travel and tourism information.
The Hinchinbrook Marine Cove Resort, just south of Cairns in North Queensland, was voted a winner in the “Townsville and Surrounds” region. The AGFG Readers’ Choice Awards are designed to give the Australian public the opportunity to vote for their favourite establishments throughout the year. The Awards recognise “hard-working establishments and they provide AGFG editors with invaluable data on what’s popular.”
Hinchinbrook Marine Cove Resort owner-operator Linda McKeown said she was delighted with the Award, which was a reflection of the positive feedback the accommodation had received from numerous guests.
“We are located in a superb environment in the Hinchinbrook Channel, our accommodation is first class and I guess our guests are pretty happy with our service,” Linda said. “So yes, we are delighted to have received the award for the second year in a row.”
Michael McKeown also singled out the resort’s proximity to both Cairns, Townsville and Ingham and the popularity of the Hinchinbrook Island National Park as well as fishing on the Great Barrier Reef and the Hinchinbrook Channel.
“It’s a special part of the world that many of our guests will testify to, including those that kindly voted for us in the AGFG Readers’ Choice Awards,” Michael said. “We hope to see them all back here in the not-to-distant future and of course we welcome anybody who wants to come and stay and experience our hospitality.”
Hinchinbrook Marine Cove Resort has more than 30 motel rooms providing the very best in accommodation options for the discerning guest, including 20 resort motel rooms, 12 self-contained bungalows and a three-bedroom apartment for larger-sized groups.
