For the First time in 2016 we entered our School Camp and Student Tour Services into the South Australian Tourism Awards. We were awarded a gold medal as Runner Up in the Specialised Tourism Services Category.
The South Australian Tourism Awards are presented by the South Australian Tourism Industry Council and proudly supported by the South Australian Tourism Commission.
On the back of our SATIC GOLD Medal in 2016, we were identified throughout Australia as being industry leaders in the School Camp and Student tour industry. As part of this recognition were we approached to be part of the Industry Leaders TV show for Foxtel.
