Outback Qld Masters Strikes Silver at the Qld Tourism Awards


Following the excitement of the 2,800 kilometre golfing adventure of this year’s Outback Queensland Masters, the event was recognised with the silver award for Best Festival and Event at the 2023 Queensland Tourism Awards staged in Cairns.

“Congratulations to award winners and finalists for creating world-class visitor experiences and helping to make 2023 an extraordinary year for Queensland’s tourism industry,” Queensland Tourism Minister, Stirling Hinchliffe said.

“Outback Queensland Masters was honoured to win this category last year and we are thrilled to be recognised with the silver award in 2023,” said Luke Bates, State Manager – Queensland and Northern Territory, Golf Australia.

“Outback QLD Masters continues to be the worlds’ richest and most remote amateur golf series, spanning thousands of kilometres in Queensland’s Outback. Presented by Golf Australia and the event was created and developed by Cre8ion and Weatherall Golf through a strategic partnership with Tourism and Events Queensland.

“This event continues to ignite the passion, not only for golf, but the sense of adventure and mateship across the ancient landscapes of Outback Queensland.

“On behalf of our team we thank all those involved in enabling and supporting Outback Queensland Masters each year including sponsors, local councils, the golf clubs, volunteers, participants, performers, contractors and the people of the local communities the Outback Queensland Masters visits each year.

“Thank you also to the Queensland Tourism Industry Council for the organisation and delivery of the Queensland Tourism Awards and the volunteer time invested by the judges. We are thrilled to be recognized once again in a field of incredible nominees.

“We are always ready to welcome you to this unique Outback Queensland adventure in June and July next year, as we make our way from the desert sands of Birdsville to Quilpie for the million-dollar hole.

The Tourism and Sport Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said “I’m very pleased to announce the six locations for the 2024 Outback Queensland Masters which will tee off in June 2024 from our most remote golf course in Queensland, the iconic Birdsville Dunes Golf Club, and then onto to Boulia in the land of the Min Min Light, Winton, Barcaldine, Charleville and culminating in July 2024 in Quilpie for the Million Dollar Hole-In-One.

“Fast becoming an iconic Australian bucket list destination golf event, the Outback Queensland Masters this year attracted players from every state of Australia, some travelling some 10,000 km to compete in Queensland.

“Since its inception in 2019, the Outback Queensland Masters has gone from strength to strength, generating millions of dollars in visitor spend for the remote communities of Outback Queensland, and in 2022 generated 13,062 visitor nights and contributed $1.89M to the Queensland economy.

“2024 promises to be another major for the Outback Queensland Masters and the region’s much-loved visitor experiences.”

The golfing tournament of a different kind will converge on the tiny town of Quilpie in Southern Outback Queensland for the Million Dollar Hole-In-One finale in July 2024.

Quilpie Shire Mayor, Stuart Mackenzie explains the Quilpie Shire Council has been a great supporter of the Outback Masters since the concept was first proposed.

“We may be 1,000km west of Brisbane and a population of under 1,000 people, but it doesn’t stop us from attracting signature events such as the Outback Queensland Masters.

“We have put our hand up every year to host a tournament and successfully have hosted the event twice, with a player scoring a $10,000 hole-in-one in 2021.

“We are so excited to have the finale here next year for a weekend of laughs, entertainment and of course, golf. A huge congratulations to our local golf club whose wonderful hospitality and quality facilities have been instrumental in achieving this great event.”
