Media Release - Ingham Listed as Queensland Top Small Tourism Town Finalist

9th May 2023

Vote for Ingham, the gateway to the Hinchinbrook Region in the 2023 Queensland Top Tourism Town Awards.

Presented by the Queensland Tourism Industry Council (QTIC), the annual awards recognise outstanding regional destinations, honouring communities that demonstrate a commitment to excellence.

Ingham was nominated for the Top Small Tourism Town Award category population between 1,500 – 5,000 residents. Ingham is now a finalist and is up against Airlie Beach, which was last year’s winner in this category.

After an extensive judging process by a panel of tourism experts, QTIC CEO, Brett Fraser said it is now up to the public to help decide the winners.

“I urge everyone to please take time to get behind our town and vote! Those who vote can nominate to be in the running to win a three night stay at the five star RACV Noosa Resort in a luxurious three bedroom villa” said Mayor Ramon Jayo.

To cast your vote for Ingham as the Top Small Tourism Town, please visit QTIC’s website, Top Town Voting page or www.qtic.com.au/top-tourism-award/top-town-voting. Please note, voting closes Wednesday 24 May 2023.

“It is not only homegrown attractions that drive guests to a destination. It is a combined effort from local communities and tourism operators that help holidaymakers feel welcome. The awards shine a light on these communities and celebrate their dedication to visitor excellence. Congratulations to all the remarkable finalists” said QTIC CEO Brett Fraser.

Tourism Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said “This is a wonderful opportunity for Queenslanders to reward their favourite regional Tourism Towns for unforgettable visitor experiences. From tourism and accommodation operators to cafes, restaurants, and the local supermarket, being a Top Tourism Town is all about a united community commitment to excellence. Congratulations to this year’s finalists”.

Queensland’s three Top Tourism Towns will be announced in June at an awards ceremony being held in Brisbane.
