WE HAVE a winner. For the third year in a row Moama on Murray Resort has won gold for standard accommodation in NSW.
Because of this, they are now on the Hall of Fame at the state level.
They will be attending the national awards in Perth in February.
The resort is excited for the opportunity, after winning the same gong for the past two years.
‘‘The possibility to win and gain the hall of fame status on a national scale is very exciting,’’ owner John Nunan said.
To be considered for the award, the resort had to cover various areas including: reviewing the business, innovation and business plans.
They also get marked on their relationship with the community, including what they do with the community.
‘‘It make you keep on top of things,’’ John said.
Opening in 2006, the resort has 116 self-contained villas nestled in 34 hectares of native Australian bushland with 2.5km river frontage.
‘‘Even though it feels secluded, it is not difficult to walk to the resort on the bike track,’’ assistant Jenny Green said.
‘‘We also have courtesy buses that go to and from the town centre with access to everything.’’
While they are ecstatic about their status, they don’t want to base their business on their winnings.
‘‘We are a part of the community, therefore we see this as a bonus,’’ John said.
They also thanked Echuca-Moama Tourism, Murray River Tourism and the community for the support they have received.
