Fraser Island's Kingfisher Bay Resort Group scooped a trifecta of tourism gongs at last night's Fraser Coast Regional Tourism Awards.

Fraser Island Barges confirmed its position as one of the coast's leading transport operators and was inducted into the 'Hall of Fame' entrant for 2013. This year, Kingfisher Bay Resort entered the 'Retail and General Tourism Services' category for the first time – taking out top honours.

The Group's touring arm, Fraser Explorer Tours, won the Best Tour and Transport Operator category in its first year back in contention, after being inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2011.

According to Group General Manager, David Hay, the awards were a pat on the back for a team that has been doing it tough in rough and harsh conditions on Fraser Island for the past few months.

"Whether we win or not, these award nights provides an opportunity to celebrate the hard work and effort our team has put in throughout the year," he said. "We offer our sincere congratulations to all winners, finalists and entrants on a fantastic night."
