Geraldton has had a taste of success at the 2021 Perth Airport WA Tourism Awards and secured bronze for ‘Excellence in Local Government Award for Tourism’.

Gold was claimed by the City of Fremantle and the City of Rockingham took out silver.

The Perth Airport WA Tourism Awards brings tourism operators and organisations together from across the state and is an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the past 12 months.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor congratulated everyone in the category.

“The Perth Airport WA Tourism Awards is the night of nights for those in the tourism industry and it’s a huge achievement to just be a finalist,” he said.

“Congratulations to the local government authorities in the category and also to the City of Fremantle for taking out the top gong.

“Geraldton will be back next year – and we’ve got our eyes set on gold!”

Last year the City of Greater Geraldton coordinated a series of tourism marketing efforts including having a successful application as host venue for the 2021 WA Regional Tourism Conference.

Adventure Awaits Tourism Marketing Campaign also ran during winter last year and enticed travellers from Perth and the South West to travel north to Geraldton. It included billboard and bus back advertising as well as a digital marketing campaign with Perth is OK that had more than 146,000 impressions.

In the last 12 months, the Geraldton Visitor Centre provided information and assistance to over 49,800 customers, both visitors and locals alike.

The 2021 Perth Airport WA Tourism Awards is coordinated by the Tourism Council WA. The event took place on Saturday 13 November at Crown Perth.
