The annual Victorian Tourism Awards encourage tourism businesses to enter categories including attractions, accommodation, experiences, marketing and tourism education and training. The awards recognise and celebrate excellence within the tourism industry and allow for businesses to benchmark their own practices against peers and competitors while identifying opportunities for business innovation.

The Victorian Tourism Awards took place at a gala ceremony in Melbourne Park on Thursday 1 December. The winners in each category will compete at national level at the Australian Tourism Awards in Sydney early next year.
