NSW tourism operators took out national titles in the prestigious Qantas
Australian Tourism Awards held in Cairns recently.Of 189 finalists in 27 categories, NSW tourism operators received
11 first places, six silver and three
bronze awards. Two awards went to our local Hunter Valley region of NSW at Scone and Newcastle.

excellence in our tourism industry and highlighting the top-quality operators
who are leaders among their peers,” Mr George Souris said. “NSW tourism
operators were represented in all 27 categories, with eight Sydney-based
businesses and operators in five regions winning accolades. In particular it
was a great result for tourism operators in the State’s North Coast and Hunter
regions, winning a total of 13 honours between them, showing the tremendous
variety and quality of tourism businesses across NSW. All 26 NSW finalists are
the cream of the crop and have displayed exceptional professionalism”.
