Flinders Discovery Centre & PORCUPINE GORGE Receive ‘2022 Travellers Choice Awards. 

At Hughenden, we’re proud of our Discovery Centre, our Town Tour, Sunset Tour and our stunning Porcupine Gorge. The Discovery Centre is the go-to place for travellers and Porcupine Gorge is an absolute MUST – this year we’re extra proud. Why? Because this year Porcupine Gorge and the Flinders Discovery Centre have each been awarded TripAdvisor’s 2022 Travellers Choice Awards. It’s made possible by your amazing reviews and our friendly team. If you have visited us yet make sure you pop in, say G’day and take a tour.

What are the Travelers’ Choice awards?

The Travelers’ Choice awards are given to travellers’ favourite destinations and experiences. The award is based on the reviews and opinions collected from travellers from around the world on Tripadvisor over a 12-month period – whether that’s a hotel, Discovery Centre, activity in the area and more.

Tripadvisor’s awards fall into two levels: Best of the Best and Travelers’ Choice.

Best of the Best is a significant accolade while Travellers’ Choice recognizes businesses that earn consistently great reviews. Travellers’ Choice award-winners are among the top 10% of listings on Tripadvisor. The award is given to select accommodations, attractions and restaurants that consistently provide an excellent level of hospitality or exceed the expectations of travellers. This year Porcupine Gorge and our Discovery Centre did just that.

How are the winners selected?

“Travellers’ Choice winners are determined based on the quality and quantity of traveller reviews and ratings posted on Tripadvisor over a 12-month period, as well as an additional editorial process.”

Each year TripAdvisor calculates the winners by the reviews and opinions collected from travellers from the millions posted each year. For us it means that of the thousands of travellers’ that have passed through the Discovery Centre or visited Porcupine Gorge they left great reviews. A huge THANK YOU to all the amazing people that visited and took the time!

  • Maintain very good and excellent reviews (4 out of 5 stars), currently at 4.5/5 – Check
