20 Sep 2022 Outdoors Queensland Awards Finalists
At QCCC, we are excited to celebrate the achievements of two finalists for this year’s Outdoors Queensland Awards.
Firstly, congratulations to Triballink, who has been announced as a finalist for The Queensland Government Outdoor Recreation Award. An award that recognizes “an outdoor recreation peak body, club, provider, event or product that stands out from all others; has raised awareness about the benefits of outdoor recreation and being outdoors; has increased participation in outdoor recreation, and has made a significant impact on the outdoor recreation sector” (see, Outdoors Queensland website). At QCCC, we have been witness to the evolution of this vision for reconciliation from humble beginnings in an old bus, and some paperbark gunyas built on a quiet corner of the property here in Mapleton. Over the last year, Triballink hosted tens of thousands of guests and delivered Cultural Awareness Training to multiple corporate and sporting groups. This is a legitimate and authentic experience, deliberately focused on the beauty of the surrounding environment, delivered by Aboriginal people expressing their vision for a future filled with hope and promise. They are deserving finalists and we wish them all the very best on Awards Night next month.
Secondly, QCCC’s Director, Andrew has been announced as a finalist for The Queensland Government Individual Achievement Award. This award is for “individuals who have demonstrated professionalism, high achievement in a particular field and exemplary role modelling” (see, Outdoors Queensland website). Andrew is certainly a worthy contender for this award. Andrew’s leadership across our four sites demonstrates a passion for excellence in Outdoor Education and a true heart for the investment in leadership development that empowers staff to be their best. We are cheering you on Andrew for the announcement of the awards in a month’s time.
