Sydney Airport congratulates the winners of the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards, which were held on Friday, 7 February in Sydney.
Sydney Airport sponsored the Major Tour and/or Transport Operators category of the awards.
“We’ve been proud supporters of the NSW Tourism Awards for a number of years now, and with this year’s Qantas Australian Tourism Awards being held in Sydney, we were keen to take the opportunity to recognise and support the valuable contribution of businesses, organisations and operators across the entire Australian tourism industry,” Sydney Airport Chief Executive Officer, Kerrie Mather, said.
“As the gateway to Australia and with around 38 million passengers passing through Sydney Airport per year, we’re fostering tourism to Sydney and beyond by partnering with and promoting tourism initiatives and events.
“Congratulations to all the worthy recipients of the awards for the role you’ve played in delivering tourism benefits to Sydney, NSW and Australia.
“Sydney Airport is located close to Sydney’s major tourist attractions and CBD accommodation, so we were particularly pleased to see Sydney’s Taronga Zoo take out the Gold award for Major Tourist Attractions and Sydney Harbour YHA win first prize for Backpacker Accommodation.”
The winners of the Major Tour and/or Transport Operators awards were:
- Gold: Spirit of Tasmania (Tasmania);
- Silver: Quicksilver Group (Queensland); and
- Bronze: AAT Kings (Northern Territory).
Sydney Airport’s digital billboard on Departures Road leading to the Domestic terminal will feature a message congratulating all of the award winners.
