Win for North QLD operator

North Queensland tourism operators Simon and Gaye Terry have won two of the categories at the recent 2017 Outback Queensland Tourism Awards held in Cloncurry.

Continuing on from their success in these categories in 2016, the couple from Forsayth, south-west of Cairns, won the Hosted Accommodation Award for Cobbold Village, part of the Cobbold Gorge tourism operation and Best Outback Queensland Pub for their redeveloped Goldfields Hotel in Forsayth.

They operate Cobbold Gorge Tours which is located on the family’s Robin Hood cattle station 400kms south west of Cairns.

Forsayth’s Goldfields Hotel was a purchase made in 2014 by the couple and over a period of five months completely gutted, renovated and rebuilt it.
