The Mature Traveller’s favourite travel agent wins another award.
Helen Wong of Helen Wong’s Tours has deservedly been honoured with Life Membership of the Australian Society of Travel Writers.
In announcing the prestigious prize at the annual ASTW Awards Night at the Palazzo Versace on the Gold Coast, the association's president Bev Malzard praised Helen for the many commitments she made in supporting the society and its members over the past 26 years.
"She is truly a remarkable woman," said Bev. Helen, who founded Helen Wong's Tours in 1987, has been a long-time public relations member of the ASTW and will continue to support the society and its 300 or more members in years to come.
On receiving the Life Membership, Helen, who was unable to attend the awards, said, "I'm so honoured to be included in this exclusive club (only 13 have been presented life membership since the society was founded in the mid1970s). If my father was still around he would be so proud."
On hearing the news, writers and travel industry professionals have rallied to offer their well wishes and praises.
And we know that the many thousands of mature travellers, who have delighted in one of her tours, will wish Helen all the best as well.
