In its 30th year, the QHA Awards for Excellence gathered hotels from all corners of the state to commend the vibrant industry and recognise those who have achieved excellence.

Beginning the evening as finalists in six of 34 categories, the event concluded with QT Gold Coast winning four awards that celebrate their unique people and extraordinary experiences.

The recognition of the reimagined, world-class conferencing and events spaces follows an extensive renovation completed in November 2022. At the helm are leaders such as Bianca Mellville, C&E and Minor Outlets Manager, embodying QT’s signature quirky and uncompromising customer service.


Yamagen remains a modern dining destination for those seeking Japanese on the Coast, with Executive Chef, Adam Lane, pioneering the refined dishes it is renowned for.
