Good luck to Tasmania's tourism operators who are going head to head with the cream of Australia's tourism industry at the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards in Darwin tomorrow night.
Tasmania is represented across 24 of the 25 categories, from Major Tourist Attractions to Unique Accommodation and Excellence in Food Tourism.
In recent years Tasmania has dominated at these awards, which is a testament to the quality of our operators, and the result of industry and government working together to maintain the boom in our visitor economy which supports local business and creates jobs.
The awards recognise and promote business excellence in tourism and also enhance our national and international reputation as a must-see destination.
On behalf of Tasmanians I wish all our finalists the very best of luck.
