Darren has been Resort Manager of RACV Noosa Resort since 2010 and proudly leads a team of 180 staff. The resort has been inducted into the Queensland Tourism Awards Hall of Fame after winning Best Deluxe Accommodation for three consecutive years and recently took out Gold in the Self-Contained Accommodation category for the second year running.
Darren has worked closely with Tourism Noosa to promote the region to RACV's 2.1 million members and will do more to promote and support Noosa, which he believes is one of the most beautiful destinations in the world.
RACV Noosa Resort is one of the only resorts in the country to obtain Silver Earth Check accreditation, the world’s leading scientific benchmark environmental certification and advisory group for travel and tourism. With his role on the Board, Darren will share with the broader Noosa community some of the work that RACV has done in embracing sustainable tourism business practices, including initiatives to reduce resource consumption and energy.
Darren has spent most of his working life managing large, people-dominated operations and he will bring his ability to build positive and collaborative relationships with a diverse range of people to Tourism Noosa.
Darren is the current Chair of the Marketing and Events Committee.
