AMRTA Chief Executive Officer Pip Close was thrilled with the region’s efforts, and paid homage to its outstanding local tourism operators.

“The Margaret River Region has achieved some extraordinary results this past 12 months,” said Ms Close.

“I would like to acknowledge the exceptional tourism operators in the region – they certainly make our job in marketing the destination an absolute privilege.

“The imminent unified brand for the region will unquestionably further enhance its tourism potential; the future of The Margaret River Region is extremely promising,” she said.

The gala dinner ceremony was held on Saturday night at Crown Perth, and all category winners now progress to the QANTAS Australian Tourism Awards in 2015.
