Queenstown named Australasia’s leading destination
World class experiences and stunning scenery have earned Queenstown global recognition overnight at Australasia’s leading destination at the 23rd World Travel Awards.
The year-round adventure, lake and alpine resort was presented with the award at a ceremony held in Danang, Vietnam at the weekend.
Welcoming the recognition by the global tourism industry, Destination Queenstown Chief Executive Graham Budd stated “it’s wonderful to gain this accolade for our destination, and a large part of the credit for this achievement should go to the tourism and hospitality operators that offer quality experiences for all travellers.
“Queenstown’s stunning scenery, friendly and welcoming people, world-class activities, cosmopolitan food and wine offering and range of accommodation make Queenstown stand out as a must-visit destination for travellers from around the world,” he says.
Queenstown is now in the running for the title of World’s Leading Destination, to be announced at the end of the year.
The World Travel Awards are voted for by travel and tourism professionals around the world, and are celebrated during a tour of events at destinations within each awards region.
