Sydney, The Travellers’ Choice And A Favourite Of Foodies’

April 15, 2014 Social Media No Comments Email Email

Destination NSW Chief Executive Officer, Sandra Chipchase has welcomed news that Sydney has received TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Destinations Awards as top Australian and top South Pacific destination, while three of Sydney’s vibrant restaurants have also made the annual Elite Traveler Top 100 Restaurants list.

“This global recognition is testament to the success of the targeted marketing and industry partnership campaigns, and major events secured by Destination NSW,” she said.

“On top of being named the best city in Australia and the South Pacific in the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Destinations Awards, Sydney was also the only Australian city to be named in the top 25 cities around the world.

Readers of high end lifestyle publication Elite Traveler also ranked Surry Hills restaurant Marque, run by Chef Mark Best, at 35 in their top 100, with Tetsuya’s coming in at 60 and the spectacularly situated Quay Restaurant at 88.

“It is little wonder that people choose Sydney as their number one travel destination, when we have golden beaches perfect for swimming and surfing, fantastic events, world class attractions, shopping and delicious dining,” she said.

“To add to the tourist experience, Regional NSW is blessed with a range of natural wonders such as the magnificent Blue Mountains, rugged beauty of the Central and Far West, and of course the panoramic South Coast.

“The best that nature has to offer, along with many other fantastic urban attractions, entices 28.5 million international and domestic overnight visitors to NSW each year, delivering more than $21 billion in visitor expenditure,” she said.

The TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Destinations Awards honour top travel spots worldwide, and are based on millions of reviews and opinions from TripAdvisor travellers, gathered over a 12-month period. Elite Traveler surveys its readers on their favourite restaurants from the past year to compile their top 100 restaurants list.
