Tourism Tasmania supports a host of great operators selling great products around the state, so it wouldn’t be fair to single anyone out. Would it?

Tourism Tasmania Industry Council Awards

Congratulations then, to everyone who even entered the prestigious tourism awards. The awards are presented annually to recognise business excellence in tourism. Tasmania celebrated the winners announced by the Tourism Industry Council at a gala dinner at Wrest Point in Hobart earlier this month.

And in the interests of fairness, I won’t single anyone out.

(Actually, I do have to say, just quickly… I told you so!)

TMAG and Port Arthur Historic Site

The Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery was the winner of the Major Tourist Attraction Award for 2010. Well done! Hasn’t Think Tasmania been telling you how great that is? The other finalist in this category was the Port Arthur Historic Site.

Heritage & Cultural Tourism Tasmania

Recently, we went to the Beaconsfield Mine and Heritage Centre and came away very impressed. The judges concurred, and gave them the award for Heritage & Cultural Tourism.

Tasmania makes it very hard for the judges though, as the Port Arthur Historic Site was a finalist in this category too. So close!

Tasmanian winners: Jack Lark

While on the subject of congratulations, we also have to give a quick shout out to Jack Lark, Tasmania’s Junior MasterChef.

We mentioned in the Lark Distillery article that Jack was a competitor on the show. Well, he made it all the way to the final.

Fantastic effort, and a fantastic display of sportsmanship. A generous nature AND a natural flair for food? All good for local tourism. Tasmania is in good hands!
