‘Smiles for days’ are on the faces of Adels Grove co-owners Michelle and Rod Low Mow, Gary Murray and Alan Mathieson, having taken out Queensland’s highest tourism industry accolade Friday evening; a Gold for the Hosted Accommodation category at the 2015 Queensland Tourism Industry Council Awards.

Hosted at Brisbane’s Convention and Exhibition Centre, Adels Grove were pitted against some stiff competition including the Gold Coast Hinterlands Pethers Rainforest Retreat, who took out the categories Silver award and Nightfall Wilderness Camp situated at Lamington National Park who took home the Bronze.

Renowned as the Queensland tourism industries night of nights Adels Grove on-site Manager and Co-owner Michelle Low Mow spoke of her shock and excitement on receiving the award.

“It’s extremely humbling to be recognised as Queensland Tourisms premier hosted accommodation provider in 2015.”

“Even as proud and active advocates of tourism in Outback Queensland we can honestly say we were still very shocked when our name was called out; and like our win at the recent Outback Queensland Tourism Awards we take our hats off to our partners, staff and our visitors who’s support made such a big win possible.”

Open to owner/operator accommodation providers offering a high degree of personal contact with guests the Hosted Accommodation award was open but not limited to bed & breakfast, farm stay, cottage or other intimate, boutique, colonial or heritage accommodation.

Also in attendance at the gala ceremony Michelle’s husband and fellow Site Manager Rod Low Mow acknowledged the hard work and effort put in to running an award winning facility.

“Operating a remote camping park 365 days a year you of course recognise the extreme effort and dedication required; but when pitted against so many other businesses that also put in similar time and effort you do question if your efforts and the unique facilities, tours and attractions you offer will stand out and be award worthy… apparently they do and are!”

A truly amazing location situated just 10 kilometres from the Lawn Hill National Park, Adels Grove offers visitors a unique accommodation experience just 4 .5 hours from the city of Mount Isa. Including everything from pre-erected ‘glamping style’ bed and breakfast tents, self-camp facilities, ensuited cabins through to guided tours, an airstrip and fully equipped bar and restaurant a visit to this little piece of Outback Queensland is well and truly worth your time.
