Finalists in the 2016 Regional Tourism Awards (Regionals) have been announced with Riverina Tourism boasting four finalists.

The Regional Tourism Awards are held annually to acknowledge excellence in tourism in the four regional tourism areas of Central, Inland, Murray and Riverina.

Chair of the Awards, Jane Barnes today congratulated the Award finalists and said ‘We have 39 finalists competing in 19 categories across the four regional tourism regions.”
“The judges have commented on the high standard of professionalism and innovation the finalists have shown in their field. This year we also have a previous Award winner being inducted into the Regionals Hall of Fame”.

“The Regional Tourism Awards Board is looking forward to the gala award dinner being held at the Moama Bowling Club on Saturday 23 July where winners will be announced and regional tourism will be celebrated”, Mrs Barnes continued.
