Regional Tourism Awards a huge success for Dubbo Regional Council
Dubbo Regional Council is thrilled to have collected two (2) Gold and one (1) Bronze Award at the Regional Tourism Awards held at Taronga Western Plains Zoo in Dubbo on Saturday night.
Chief Executive Officer of Dubbo Regional Council Michael McMahon would like to commend staff for achieving this level of recognition.
“I’m very proud of the staff that work for Dubbo Regional Council, being recognised at this level and bringing home Gold and Bronze across three (3) categories reflects the passion and drive Council staff have for their work, their region and their community,” Mr McMahon said.
The Old Dubbo Gaol took out Gold in the Cultural Tourism category while The Dubbo and Great Western Plains destination marketing campaign was awarded Gold in the Destination Marketing category. The Old Dubbo Gaol also collected Bronze in the Tourism Attractions category and The Dubbo Visitor Information was nominated as a finalist in the Visitor Information Services Award category.
“To be nominated among some of the best tourism attractions across the state is something the team should be proud of in its own right, and to take home three (3) awards is just outstanding,” said Mr McMahon.
“The Old Dubbo Gaol is a state heritage listed site housing nationally significant collections such as the hangman’s kit and gallows with theatrical tours and night tours. It’s a must-see and a very deserving winner of the two awards it collected on Saturday night.”
“We’ve been proud to partner with Destination New South Wales to effectively deliver The Dubbo and Great Western Plains destination marketing campaign. This campaign has successfully marketed the region to an audience of families looking for an adventurous, outdoor experience. It has delivered excellent statistics with visitation up despite the worst drought on record. It’s wonderful to achieve such great results statistically and now excellent to be recognised with the gold award in this category,” said Mr McMahon.
The recipients of gold awards for each category will now compete in the New South Wales Tourism Awards.
