Warwick named as one of Wotif's Top 10 Aussie Towns of the Year
The Rose City has been named one of the 2019 Wotif Aussie Towns of the Year!
Leading online travel site Wotif has revealed the winners of the 2019 Wotif Aussie Town of the Year awards, recognising ten deserving locations across the country that have made a unique contribution to Australian tourism.
Looking beyond traditional domestic hotspots and backed by Wotif’s 18-year Australian heritage, the awards aim to support local communities by encouraging Aussies to discover more of their own backyard.
Warwick came in at number 10, one of only two Queensland destinations to make the list.
Now in its second year, the Wotif Aussie Town of the Year awards are based on Wotif pricing and demand data and for the first time, traveller reviews, unearthing 2019’s up-and-coming destinations.
Wotif General Manager Daniel Finch said: “After almost two decades of facilitating travel for Australians, Wotif has access to an incredible amount of insight when it comes to what Aussie travellers look for when they travel, informed by traveller-reviews from more than two million locals as well as a depth of demand data.
“We know from traveller research that Aussies cite discovering more of their backyard as the number one reason for travelling domestically (30 per cent) and with the quintessential road trip the preferred method of travel (nearly 55 per cent travel by car vs 45 per cent flying). The Aussie Town of the Year awards seek to give Aussies a helping hand when planning their next local holiday, as we continue to help great Aussie destinations attract travellers” continued Finch.
Southern Downs Mayor Tracy Dobie said she is delighted Warwick has been
named as one of Australia's top destinations to visit in 2019.
“From beautiful natural assets
and scenery to vibrant country towns, to world class events, cultural and
heritage experiences, Warwick and its surrounds is a wonderful destination to
visit and explore," Cr Dobie said.
“Being named as one of the top
destinations to visit in Australia is a very proud moment for our community and
we look forward to sharing our region and our country hospitality with our
visitors in 2019.”
