Local businesses tourism finalists
Three local tourism businesses; Aquazone @ Lake Mulwala, Rich Glen Olive Estate and DC on the Lake are among 24 leading tourism businesses that were announced as finalists in the 2018 Riverina Murray Regional Tourism Awards.
Regional Tourism Awards Chair, Jane Barnes, last week announced the final contenders that include tourism businesses, events, restaurants, wineries and accommodation providers among an impressive cohort.
“This year’s finalists showcase the best of the region’s tourism industry and some amazing individuals and operators,” Ms Barnes said.
“Each of these finalists is now in the running to be named a winner in 14 award categories at our gala awards ceremony on July 21 in Deniliquin.”
Richie Robinson, General Manager of Destination Riverina Murray, says the Regional Tourism Awards are an invaluable opportunity for the industry to come together and celebrate business excellence across the sector.
“We look forward to celebrating the achievements of our finalists, as they take their first steps on the way to possible State and National recognition,” Mr Robinson said.
“All our tourism finalists have contributed to the Riverina Murray’s growing reputation as a premier destination in NSW, and I would like to congratulate everyone who took the time to enter.”
The program’s independent panel of judges will select winners from the list in each awards category. Winners of the Regional Tourism Awards gain finalist status upon entering the NSW State Tourism Awards, and if successful, go onto the National Tourism Awards.
