Hillarys-based Mills Charters will compete against seven other finalists in the adventure tourism category when winners are announced on October 25.

Sue Dash celebrated her Chocolate Drops business in Yanchep National Park being named with seven others for the specialised tourism services category.

Gingin Observatory is a tourist attractions finalist, along with five other sites.

The City of Wanneroo is one of five finalists for the local government award, and Mayor Tracey Roberts said tourism was a priority for the area. ‘Our submission focused on activities delivered through our tourism strategy, including marketing, events, signage and business support,’ she said.

‘One was the creation of the Wanneroo Visitor Guide and Business Directory, which is widely distributed through visitor centres, the City’s website and libraries.

‘Events, like our concert and Dogs Breakfast, are popular and help make Wanneroo facilities a destination for locals and visitors.’

Tourism Council WA chief executive Evan Hall said the awards highlighted the extraordinary experiences in WA.
