Glitz and Glam, The 2018 Tourism Awards

Thursday, December 13, 2018

Congratulations To All Entrants

The Outback Queensland and Queensland Tourism Awards are the nights of nights for tourism providers all across Queensland to share the amazing things that have been happening over the last year. This year we submitted our first ever award submissions for both Outback and Queensland wide awards. The exhaustive process of writing the award helps to really take a step back and have a look at what our business has done in the field of tourism.  Although no awards were received for the museum our staff made the trip to both of the awards hosted in Roma and the Queensland Awards on the Gold Coast at the Star Casino. 

Outback Queensland Tourism Awards

Hosted by Roma this year we were treated to a night of lights and flights with the awards being held on the Apron of the Roma Airport. As we watched the storm roll in it was a fantastic evening of food and awards.  It was exciting to hear that our local government Quilpie Shire Council won the Local Government Award for Tourism. Which is awarded to the government entity that is most proactive in developing their tourism products within their region.

We look forward to going to next years awards in Winton to represent the museum again and showcase the amazing things that are on offer in South Western QLD. 

Queensland Tourism Awards

The Queensland Tourism Awards were hosted at the Star Casino on the Gold Coast this year on the 16th of November 2018. We were lucky to have two of our employees Robyn and Corey at the event. This exquisite evening showcases the very best in tourism for Queensland. We congratulate everyone who received an award especially those in the Outback and we look forward to representing the museum again next year on the Sunshine Coast for another night of nights for Tourism.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Holotype?

A holotype is a valuable original specimen that describes a new species.  It is a term used to describe a specimen that is the first known of its kind anywhere in the world.  A holotype can be any type of fossil, and it serves as the name-bearer of the species.  Even if a better specimen is found, the holotype is not superseded.  These are rare and exciting discoveries, which help fill important gaps in the fossil record. 

Every animal and plant that is scientifically described is represented by a holotype.  If a scientist wishes to study the unique traits of a species, it is usually the holotype specimen they study.  The holotypes are the crown jewels of any museum collection.  These priceless specimens need to be stored and conserved at standards that meet the Code of International Zoological Nomenclature.
