Swan Valley Visitor Centre awarded a gold medal for Best Visitor Centre in Western Australia for the third year running
Recently we reported that the Swan Valley Visitor Centre (SVVC) was in the running for a third consecutive gong at the Perth Airport WA Tourism Awards. Well, they’ve done it, with the SVVC awarded the best Visitor Centre in Western Australia, out of more than 100 in the state, at the awards ceremony on November 9. The three consecutive gold medals received by the Visitor Centre also meant a second induction into the WA Tourism Awards Hall of Fame.
Gold medallists in each category including Major Festivals & Events (Field of Light: Avenue of Honour), Cultural Tourism (Fremantle Prison) and New Tourism Business (Discovery Rottnest Island) will represent WA at the 2019 Qantas Australian Tourism Awards in Canberra in March 2020.
