In a huge win for our region, Red Hill South and Sorrento have taken out silver and gold medals in their respective categories at this year’s Victorian Top Tourism Town Awards.

Run by the Victoria Tourism Industry Council, the Awards aim to highlight hard working local tourism businesses and the value they bring to their towns and communities, and to celebrate outstanding regional destinations across Victoria.

Last night’s medal haul confirms that Red Hill South and Sorrento offer visitors and residents plenty in the way of natural beauty, dining and accommodation, outdoor activities, art and much, much more.

Sorrento will now go on to represent Victoria in the Top Small Tourism Town category at the Australian Top Tourism Town Awards. Red Hill South’s entry in the Top Tiny Tourism Town was submitted by Mornington Peninsula Shire, while Sorrento’s entry in the Small Tourism Town category was submitted by Sorrento Beachside Tourism.


Quotes attributable to Mayor Councillor Steve Holland:

Our silver and gold at the 2023 Victorian Top Tourism Town Awards are a huge accolade for the communities of Red Hill South and Sorrento and reveal what locals have known all along – that the Peninsula offers unique visitor experiences at any time of the year.

The Awards not only shine a spotlight on Red Hill South and Sorrento, but the Peninsula as a whole. It truly is an amazing holiday destination with something for everyone and we hope people come to experience it for themselves!
