Australia's Top Tourism Town Awards 2023

Celebrate the Regions

The winners for 2023 have been announced! Check out who made the Top Towns across the country…

Each category is measured by population size along with attractions, amenities, and the infrastructure designed to host guests. Every town has something wonderful to offer - why not get your community involved and tell us what's yours...

Winners will enjoy state recognition, increased visitation, free publicity and possibly: national glory at the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards in front of their industry and peers.

It's not just the town but the people we want to celebrate too. We also have a category for Top Tour Guide to recognise the most charismatic and entertaining guides in the industry.

The Top Tourism Town Awards will be open in each state & territory next year. Keep your inboxes refreshed on when to enter.
