Another Gold at Queensland Tourism Awards

We again attended the Queensland Tourism Awards this year and are chuffed that we were awarded Gold in Specialised Tourism Services for the second consecutive year. The Awards are a submission and inspection based program and provide the opportunity to publicly acknowledge and showcase Queensland’s finest tourism operators.


Gifts of hope and comfort for Cape York communities


More than 110 comfort packs containing vital hygiene and sanitary items will help patients who travel from remote communities, all thanks to students who traveled with us this year and created these very important packs. We teamed up with Torres and Cape Hospital and Health Service Nurse Navigator Manager Rachel Sargeant this year to create a service project for students to give back to community. Often patients travel far from their communities or must travel quickly, and they don’t have basic toiletries with them. The packs containing all the essential products people need while they are staying in hospital will be distributed by the Nurse Navigators in Cairns, Cooktown, Weipa and Thursday Island.

Recycling the Non-Recyclable

Small World has become a registered Drop Off Point for  TerraCycle Australia’s Oral Care Program and the Writing Instruments Program. TerraCycle is eliminating the idea of waste by recycling the non-recyclable by collecting and recycling almost any form of waste. While there is an estimated 20 million tonnes of garbage making it’s way into landfill in Australia each year, we hope to be part of the change and improvement in waste management by participating in programs and collaborating with organisations such as TerraCycle Australia.

Refugee Has Much to Teach Our Students


We welcome Sohad to our growing family of Small World Journeys presenters. Sohad is from Palestine and is migrant now living in Cairns. Students can learn how to prepare a delicious meal from her home country while Sohad shares both her story and her love for cooking. In a time when the plight of migrants is widely discussed, this activity allows students to understand circumstances in the world that cause people to flee their countries. This activity humanizes this struggle. Ask us how we can include this activity into your trip itinerary!

100% Survival Rate on SWJ Coral Tree!


Our coral tree has an incredible success rate–the latest data shows that all corals are growing well, and have survived since the tree was installed in July 2018.
