Hunter and Central Coast tourism awards finalists announced

A long list of local businesses once again features among the finalists of the QantasLink Hunter and Central Coast Awards for Excellence in Tourism.

Visitor Economy Hunter director Roger Stephan said the awards are a tremendous opportunity to recognise the high standard, diversity and contribution of the tourism industry in our regions.

“The quality of submissions this year was outstanding and gaining finalist status in itself is a great achievement,” he said.

“The lucky winners of each category will automatically be entered into the State Tourism Awards and will be amongst a small group of truly outstanding tourism businesses and operators deserving of State-wide and national profile.”

Local finalists include Beyond Ballooning, Bimbadgen, Casa La Vina, Chateau Elan, Convict Footprints On The Old Great North Road, Golden Door Health Retreat and Spa Elysia, Hermitage Lodge, Margan Wines, Restaurant Cuvee, Peterson House, Snow Time In The Garden (Hunter Valley Gardens), The Sebel Kirkton Park and The Vintry.

A total of 45 individual tourism operators across 21 categories have made the list of finalists for the awards, which include prestigious individual awards for Young Achiever and Outstanding Contribution to Local Tourism.

Winners will be announced at the awards ceremony on Wednesday, August 6 at Wests New Lambton.
