Rockhampton has officially become a Queensland Top Tourism Town finalist in Queensland Tourism Industry Council’s Top Tourism Town Awards program last night.
Rockhampton was awarded the finalist position alongside 13 other regional towns across Queensland, marking the region as one of Queensland’s best tourism destinations.
Rockhampton Region Mayor Tony Williams said being a finalist in the awards program recognises the efforts and contributions our region makes in ensuring Rockhampton’s visitor experience is the best it can be.
“The awards program recognises Queensland towns that offer an amazing visitor experience, and we would not have been able to achieve this recognition without the contributions of our region’s tourism operators, local businesses or our local community,” Mayor Williams said.
Advance Rockhampton Executive Manager Greg Bowden said the award recognition will help to put Rockhampton on the radar as a holiday destination of choice.
“Becoming a finalist in Queensland’s Top Tourism Town Awards will raise Rockhampton’s profile as a viable holiday destination to come and visit,” Mr Bowden said.
“From a mate’s weekend away to a family holiday, Rockhampton truly offers something for everyone and I urge all Queenslanders to put Rocky on their radar and consider Rockhampton as their next holiday destination.”
Queensland Tourism Industry Council’s Top Tourism Town Awards was held in Brisbane on Thursday, 20 May with Noosa taking out the top title.
