Monday, October 18th, 2010 - Sealink Kangaroo Island
SeaLink Travel Group has taken out top honours at this year’s Advantage SA Regional Awards winning the Large Business Category and entering the Hall of Fame.

Against a record 170 nominees representing Kangaroo Island, the Fleurieu Peninsula and Adelaide Hills, the South Australian success story was acknowledged for its enormous contribution to development and community pride.

SeaLink Managing Director Jeff Ellison said he was thrilled with the win which was a tribute to the hard work of our dedicated staff.

“We are a proud South Australian owned and operated company with more than 350 employees working in our various tourism and transport businesses across South Australia and in Melbourne, Sydney and New Zealand,” he said.

“More than one third of these employees are employed in our core business of operating ferries, tours and holiday packages which operate in two of the key areas covered by the regional awards: the Fleurieu Peninsula and Kangaroo Island.

“Our vision is to showcase Australasia to the world and our regional businesses are an essential part of this strategy, delivering on our promise of holiday experiences that are fun, exciting and world class.”

While SeaLink is best known in South Australia for its ferry services between Cape Jervis and Penneshaw on Kangaroo Island, it is also a key tourism operator across Australasia.

The Group operates Kangaroo Island Sightseeing Tours, Kangaroo Island Adventure Tours, Kangaroo Island Odysseys, Adelaide Sightseeing, Adelaide Panda Tours, Australian Holiday Centres in Melbourne and Sydney, City Centre Travel in Adelaide, Vivonne Bay Eco Adventures, TravelLink Australia, SkyLink Adelaide and SeaLink New Zealand.

It is also Facility Manager of the Adelaide Central Bus Station, owns and operates the Cape Jervis Ferry Terminal and CJ’s Café and just recently invested heavily into the Chinese market, appointing its first Business Development Executive employed outside of Australia to drive growth out of the Greater China market.

“Through our transport brands and sound distribution networks, we are connecting our customers from around the world to key Australasian icons and landscapes – and some of the most exciting of these can be found on Kangaroo Island and across the Fleurieu Peninsula,” Mr Ellison said.
