Showcasing the best of Tasmanian tourism

Tasmania’s tourism industry is the envy of the world and the 2019 Tasmanian Tourism Awards showcased the great people and world-class tourism experiences on offer across the state.

Our tourism industry deserves to be celebrated after its amazing growth in recent years, with the industry employing 42,800 people across Tasmania.

It was especially pleasing to see so many award winners from regional parts of Tasmania, which demonstrates why regional tourism will be the centrepiece of the Australian Government’s Tourism 2030 Strategy.

There is no doubt that Tasmania has what the world wants, and we will continue to do whatever we can to grow the industry even further and unlock our full tourism potential.

Congratulations to all the winners and I look forward to seeing them represent Tasmania at the Australian Tourism Awards in March.
