Tasmania has been the big winner at the 2015 national tourism awards, taking out 10 of the top prizes.
The winners of the Qantas-sponsored Australian Tourism Awards were announced on Friday night in Adelaide.
Tasmanian operators claimed 10 gold awards, three silver and three bronze, Tourism Tasmania said in a statement.
A total 29 gongs were handed out at the ceremony.
Tourism Tasmania chief executive John Fitzgerald said more people than ever were travelling to the island state.
‘A light is currently shining on Tasmanian tourism as a record number of Australian and overseas visitors discover the … natural, heritage, cultural and gourmet experiences we have,’ he said.
The awards come after Lonely Planet named Tasmania as one of the world’s top 10 regions to visit in 2015.
