THE City of Swan’s Swan Valley Visitor Centre has taken out gold at the 2017 Perth Airport WA Tourism Awards.

The SVVC won the award in the visitor information and services category by the Tourism Council of WA on Saturday night.

Swan Mayor David Lucas said he was thrilled the Visitor Centre had been recognised as an industry leader.

“With over 100 visitor centres in the State, being recognised as the very best is a huge honour for us and one the entire team is very proud of,” he said.

“I know the SVVC truly loves representing the region and servicing its visitors, and are looking forward to continuing to provide superior services to visitors and the tourism industry in the future.”

Swan Valley/Gidgegannup ward councillor Charlie Zanino said a number of Swan Valley businesses also won a variety of awards.

“The City would like to congratulate the other Swan Valley winners and medallists including Entopia Wines and Whiteman Park,” he said.

“The Swan Valley has so much to offer and the fact the region has been so well represented at such a prestigious awards night is real proof of this.”
