2023 Australian Tourism Awards Winner

Gold for On Board at the 2023 Australian Tourism Awards

Privilege of place at the very highest standard has been recognised with On Board's win at the recent Qantas Australian Tourism Awards in the New Business Category.

On Board Director, Marketing & Experience Alice van der Woude said, "We’re very proud - and more than a little bit emotional - to be taking home this national award for tourism excellence and innovation in the New Business category."

"Our sensational team, the heart and soul behind this small, family-run business, have been integral along this journey. We wouldn’t be where we are without you, nor without the support of those who choose to travel with us to a very special corner of Tasmania’s wilderness. A big thanks to all who have helped us to make this dream a reality."

2023 Australian Tourism Awards Gold On Board Trophy

On Board's innovative luxury lodge combines an expert team with a wealth of seafaring experience and local knowledge with warm hospitality and access to some of Tasmania's most remote and breathtaking wilderness.

The Qantas Australian Tourism Awards, which were held on 15 March 2024 in Darwin, are the tourism industry’s national standard of excellence. Finalists are chosen from each state and territory’s Gold Tourism Award winners and are then put to a panel of expert industry judges, where a winner of the nation is crowned. The winners are all shapes and sizes, serious and fun, and come from all walks of Australian life. The award submission includes a 10,000-word written application.

On Board represented Tasmania at the national awards following a win at the 2023 Tasmanian Tourism Awards in November 2023.
