CAPE York Peninsula Lodge has added a new accolade to its growing list of titles, winning Gold in the 4-4.5 Star Deluxe Accommodation category at the annual 2022 Australian Tourism Awards, held in Sydney on Friday night.
The lodge is operated by Bamaga Enterprises Limited, a First Nations, community-owned organisation that reinvests its profits into scholarships, sponsorships, and community infrastructure.
Cape York Peninsula Lodge was selected as a finalist for the Australian Tourism Awards following its multiple-award win at the 2022 Queensland Tourism Awards in November.
Lodge manager Harrison Mylrea and BEL director Mark Lewis attended the awards.
BEL chair Robert Poipoi said the award recognised the lodge’s outstanding hospitality and the unique cultural experiences it offered guests travelling to the Cape.
“Our tours to Pajinka and Fruit Bat Falls offer guests a rare opportunity to learn even more about the region as they journey through the natural wonders of Cape York and the NPA with an Indigenous guide.”
