WA Tourism Awards 2018

Written on the 4 April 2018

WA Tourism Awards 2018 The Perth Airport Western Australian Tourism Awards, now in its 46th year, are designed to recognise and reward business excellence within the Western Australian tourism industry.

Every year, tourism operators are encouraged to enter the Awards, providing themselves with the opportunity to be publicly recognised for their industry contribution and achievements over the past 12 months. As WA's success in the recent Qantas Australian Tourism Awards shows, businesses of all sizes and types have the opportunity to win at a State level and go on to succeed at a National level.

The Awards are comprised of an online submission and site visit-based program that form part of the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards program. Gold Medallists in categories 1 - 25 will become automatic finalists in the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards and will represent WA on a national level in 2019.

This year, two new categories will be introduced to recognise individual excellence within the tourism industry:

  • Individual Excellence in Customer Service
  • Individual Excellence in Aboriginal Tourism

The Awards are open to all tourism-related businesses in Western Australia.

With 33 categories to choose from, including festivals and events, adventure tourism, tours and transport, food, wine and accommodation, there is a category to suit every tourism business.
