Australian tourism shines at national awards
Darwin rolled out a warm welcome for the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards on 28 February 2017, bringing together outstanding tourism businesses from around the country in a celebration of the quality and diversity of Australian tourism.
The Hon Steven Ciobo MP, Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment, said the continued passion and commitment from the hard-working Australians honoured at the Awards was crucial to further growth and attracting more visitors to Australia. “2016 was a remarkable year for Australian tourism and, whilst these awards may focus on 26 individual category winners, the whole industry deserves a collective pat on the back for the record-breaking level of performance it has delivered,” said Minister Ciobo.
John O’Sullivan, Managing Director Tourism Australia added that the impressive list of winners confirmed the diversity and depth of talent within Australian tourism. Find out more.
