2022 Awards Now Open 

The Grey Nomad Awards shine a light on regional Australia, while supporting positive aging through soft adventure and social inclusion.

With rigorous judging by tourism professionals, some of whom have experienced the grey nomad lifestyle personally, plus second-tier auditing and due diligence, winning has the credence of the tourism sector.

The 2022 Awards once again foster a better lifestyle for over 50s by providing verified information that will help guide their decisions on where to travel safely and what to experience along the way. That makes winning a prestigious Grey Nomad Award a valuable marketing tool.

“Winning this Award resulted in so much buzz and excitement around our tourist village and in Bowen itself. The town folk from the hardware store through to Birds Fish bar have congratulated us. It seems to have brought us all closer together (if that was possible!) and it’s an amazing feeling.  The cheers when the announcement was made radiated throughout the Village! We would like to thank the staff and judges at the Grey Nomads Awards for hosting an incredible program from start to finish, and offering this platform as an opportunity to showcase the Queens Beach Tourist Village.”

– Gerry, Front Office Manager, Queens Beach Tourist Village, Bowen QLD
