Hat-Trick for YHA in Adventure Tourism Awards 2019

November 20, 2019 Accolades No Comments Email Email

YHA has scored a trifecta at the 2019 Australia & NZ Adventure Tourism Awards, with Grampians Eco YHA winning Best Accommodation in Australia (& Victoria), Hobart Central YHA winning Best in Tasmania, and Sydney Harbour YHA named Best in NSW.

On 14 November 2019, at a gala event on the Gold Coast, the Adventure Tourism Awards recognised the outstanding achievements of tourism businesses servicing the backpacker, youth and adventure travel sector across Australia & New Zealand.

Winner of Best Accommodation in Australia, Grampians Eco YHA is located on the doorstep of Grampians National Park, and is eco-certified, being architecturally-designed with the local environment in mind. The property incorporates many energy-saving and sustainable features and initiatives – from rainwater tanks for flushing toilets to a chicken coop and worm farm. In return, guests can avail of fresh eggs laid by the chickens, and organic herbs fertilised by the worm compost! There are two lounge areas, two spacious self-catering kitchens, cosy wood fire heaters and a variety of accommodation types from shared to private rooms, many with balconies showcasing the surrounding views. It’s not just the uniqueness of this location and property, though, that make it such a unique place to stay – it’s also the native flora and fauna (wildlife regularly appear on the grounds) and outstanding hospitality.

Kudos also goes to Hobart Central YHA – just a block from Constitution Dock on the waterfront – for winning Best Accommodation in Tasmania, and to Sydney Harbour YHA – located in The Rocks on an archaeological dig site dating back to the early colonial settler period – awarded Best Accommodation in New South Wales.
