Bendigo was named this year’s Victorian Top Tourism Town (population over 5,000), while Port Fairy  took the win, for the second year, for the Top Small Tourism Town Award (population between 1500  and 5000), which now inducts them into the Hall of Fame.

Echuca took the Silver award for Top Tourism Town, followed by Frankston which was awarded  Bronze. For the Top Small Tourism Town, Sorrento came second (awarded Silver), and Heathcote third (awarded Bronze). For the inaugural Top Tiny Tourism Town award, Timboon was awarded  Silver, followed closely by Noojee which achieved Bronze recognition. 

The Awards, hosted by the Victoria Tourism Industry Council (VTIC), recognise and celebrate towns  that provide an outstanding visitor experience, with 18 outstanding finalists competing for the top  award. 

VTIC Chief Executive, Felicia Mariani, says the awards showcased the diverse range of regional  destinations in Victoria and the economic impact tourism brings to these towns. 

“Tourism is the lifeblood of our regional towns and centres across Victoria. The reliance on the  visitor economy was brought home during extended lockdowns when all businesses, not just tourism  businesses, were deeply impacted says Mariani

Marani added the awards celebrate the commitment of destinations right across Victoria to delivering the very  best experiences, ensuring they create magical memories for their visitors to cherish.

The Top Tourism Town Awards are delivered by VTIC in partnership with the Department of Transport, Prime7, Storytowns, Time Out Melbourne, and Victoria University.
