13 /04/ 2015 Comments are Closed

The Victoria Tourism Industry Council (VTIC) has applauded the outstanding results of the state’s tourism operators at the 2014 QANTAS Australian Tourism Awards in Adelaide on Friday night.

“The awards recognise the valuable contribution individual tourism and events operators make to our industry nationally and it is wonderful to see so many Victorians being acknowledged,” said VTIC Chief Executive Dianne Smith.

Ms Smith’s comments come as Victorian businesses took out four gold, seven silver and three bronze medals; an increase of two medals on the previous year.

Victoria’s gold winners (including award category):

  • Frankston Visitor Information Centre (Visitor Information and Services)
  • Enchanted Adventure Garden & Tree Surfing (Adventure Tourism)
  • Riviera Nautic (Unique Accommodation)
  • Drift House (Luxury Accommodation)

Frankston Visitor Information Centre won gold for the third time in a row, securing it a place in the awards Hall of Fame.

The awards cover 28 categories including adventure, various types of accommodation, tours, restaurants, wineries, events and festivals.

Victoria’s significant contribution to the national industry was also acknowledged through the announcement that Melbourne will host the 2015 QANTAS Australian Tourism Awards next year.

Ms Smith encourages Victorian operators to nominate for the 2015 RACV Victorian Tourism Awards, which recognises business excellence at a state level.
