The finalists for the Queensland’s Top Tourism Town awards have finally been announced, with 37 towns in the running, Redcliffe included.

The awards, hosted by the Queensland Tourism Industry Council (QTIC) were created to recognise and celebrate the towns across the state that offer their visitors amazing experiences. QTIC Chief Executive Daniel Gschwind says that the awards showcase Queensland’s diversity.

“With the current focus on domestic tourism, now is the time to draw attention to our regional destinations and to put the spotlight on our tourism operators and communities who keep our regions thriving,” says Mr Gschwind.

From 11 to 26 April 2021, Queensland residents will be able to vote for their favourite tourism towns and enter the running for a chance to win a $2,000 Apollo Motorhome travel package — an incentive to travel across the state and experience some of Queensland’s prime tourist destinations for themselves. 

The winning town with a population over 5,000 will receive a $25,000 Strategic Consulting and Capacity Building package from EarthCheck. Redcliffe, among 14 other large towns, have made it into the runnings.
