The Australian Tourism Awards were held on 18 March, and while there is currently no dedicated category rewarding accessibility, we were thrilled to see some accessible & inclusive businesses take out awards, including some who are listed on GetAboutAble.
The National Arboretum Canberra, one of our Canberra: More than inclusive, more than accessible campaign partners, won a SILVER in the Tourist Attractions. While Oakvale Wildlife Park took out the BRONZE in the same category
Other highlights included:
We hope to see an Accessibility category in the future to recognise those striving for excellence in being accessible & inclusive and to motivate others to step up their game and be proudly accessible.
We congratulate all of the winners and encourage them to promote their accessibility, listing on getaboutable.com is a good starting point.
