Robe represented at tourism awards

Robe has narrowly surrendered the mantle of being one of South Australia’s Top Tourism Towns.

Renmark received the Top Tourism Town accolade at the annual awards ceremony in Adelaide on Wednesday night.

Wallaroo took out the dual honour of both Small Tourism Town Award and the Peoples’ Choice Award, presented to the town that receives the most consumer votes. 

Quorn took out the inaugural Tiny Tourism Town Award.

The announcement was made by Governor of South Australia Her Excellency the Honourable Frances Adamson AC at a Government House reception for representatives of the 20 finalist towns. 

After winning a category in 2021, Robe had been short-listed in the Tiny Tourism Town Award Category.

Robe was represented at the awards ceremony by its Mayor Alison Nunan and Robe District Council chief executive James Holyman.

The Top Tourism Town program delivered by the Tourism Industry Council South Australia recognises towns that offer amazing visitor experiences and are committed to working collectively to increase visitation to their region.

Council chairman Eoin Loftus praised South Australia’s regions and congratulated the finalists and winners.

“A big congratulations to our Top Tourism Town Award recipients,” Mr Loftus said.

“Our regions overall attracted significant visitor expenditure throughout this COVID period, proving their resilience and important contributions to our state’s economy.

“It is fantastic to be celebrating and recognising our state’s tourism towns.”
