South Australia wins tourism awards

South Australia has been hailed as a top holiday destination at a recent tourism award ceremony.

The region won four out of the 20 awards up for grabs at the Travelling in Australia awards, the first such event organised by the international tourism magazine.

Industry experts from around the globe commended South Australian attractions such as Kangaroo Island, which was voted Best Eco Experience, and its resort Southern Ocean Lodge, which won Best New Product Experience.

Bookabee Australia triumphed in the Best Indigenous Experience category, while Rodney Fox Great White Shark Expedition claimed the Best Adventure Experience prize.

Jane Lomax-Smith, tourism minister, said: “These awards have extra credibility because they are voted on by the travel agents from around the world who recommend and book Australian holidays for international visitors.

“The South Australian Government is committed to growing the State’s tourism industry in a sustainable way, and South Australia is a leader in the growing field of ‘environmentally-friendly’ holidays.”

South Australia, whose capital is Adelaide, experiences very warm weather conditions in summer, especially in the northern outback parts of the state.
