Frankston makes tourism award shortlist

FRANKSTON has been nominated for another major tourism award.

Frankston has been named a finalist for the 2022 Victorian Top Tourism Town Awards, hosted by the Victoria Tourism Industry Council.

Earlier this year Frankston’s street art walking tours won the top prize for tours at the 2021 Australian Street Art Awards. Frankston was also shortlisted for the VTIC awards in 2021.

Frankston’s competitors for the Victorian tourism prize are Ballarat, Bendigo, Echuca, Lakes Entrance, Mildura, Shepparton, and Werribee. The winner will receive $ 10,000 of airtime with Prime 7, and will progress to the national finals alongside the other two most successful Victorian areas.

VTIC Chief Executive Felicia Mariani said the awards serve as a way to help revitalize the tourism industry following the COVID-19 pandemic. “We’re calling on every Victorian to cast their vote and show their support for our domestic tourism industry,” she said. “Every tourism business has worked so hard to survive the past two years. It’s the perfect time to acknowledge what regional towns and centers have done to revitalize their tourism experiences and welcome visitors back.

“Victorians have been charmed by their own backyard – two years of being in and out of lockdown have shown many of us we don’t have to leave Victoria for a getaway. It’s renewed our love for stunning regional destinations. The Victorian Tourism Awards capture that love, and help us honor our favorite parts of this great state as a top tourism town. ”
