Cape to Cape Explorer Tours and our accommodation hub Surfpoint Resort are finalists in the state’s biggest tourism awards! And we couldn’t be more proud to be gunning for gold medals once again in the Tourism Council of WA’s Perth Airport Western Australia Tourism Awards.

Gunning for gold in the state’s biggest tourism awards

“We’re super proud to once again be finalists in WA’s biggest tourism awards,” says Cape to Cape Explorer Tours founder Gene Hardy. “Last month we were honoured to be named Business of the Year for the Margaret River region. But this is the big one, where we go up against the very best tourism operators across our great state. Fingers crossed and stay tuned for the results on the big night in November.”

Excellence in ecotourism in the Margaret River region

In previous years, Cape to Cape Explorer Tours twice won gold in the Ecotourism category at the Western Australia Tourism Awards. “And one more gold medal means being inducted into the Tourism Council of WA’s Hall of Fame,” says Gene. “That would be a real honour. And that’s our goal for the 2023 awards.”

Surfpoint Resort a home away from home for our hikers

Meanwhile, the amazing accommodation hub that we also run – Surfpoint Resort – is a finalist in the awards too. Surfpoint is a relaxed and comfortable home away from home for our hikers. With a choice of resort rooms or glamping tents set among native gardens, it is run by the effervescent general manager Nic Chirico and goundskeeper Nick Campbell.


Quality and value for money when hiking the Cape to Cape Track

“We’re so excited to be finalists,” says Nic. The Surfpoint team has previously won silver at the tourism awards, and are hoping to go one better this year.  “Our team do our best to deliver quality and value for our guests as they visit Australia’s South-West and the Margaret River Region,” says Nic.
