Spanning 32 categories including Major Festivals and Events, Adventure Tourism, Heritage and Cultural Tourism and Business Tourism, the NSW Tourism Awards celebrate the diverse and significant achievements of tourism operators, who collectively contribute billions of dollars to the state’s economy.
The Awards are a major program of the Tourism Industry Council NSW and are supported by Destination NSW.

Tourism is the lifeblood of many of our State’s regional towns, and we are committed to promoting tourism in the regions, as well as supporting events that create local jobs, providing a boost to regional economies even further,” said Minister Souris.
