Manera Heights Apartments and the Old Dubbo Gaol have received Silver and Bronze medals at the 2018 NSW Tourism Awards on Thursday night.
The Old Dubbo Gaol picked up bronze in the cultural tourism category while Manera Heights Apartments were awarded silver in the standard accommodation category.
Manera Heights Apartments owners Joanne and Trevor Kratzmann said they had invested in improvements to their range of accommodation and services since moving to Dubbo in 2015.
“It was great to have our hard work in revitalizing the property acknowledged.
“Whilst the business has primarily providing accommodation visiting medical professionals and hospital patients in the past, over the past couple of years we have focused on diversifying our customer base, targeting the growing corporate and Domestic Tourist sectors,” Mr Kratzmann said.
Dubbo Regional Council Chief Executive Officer Michael McMahon congratulated the team at the Old Dubbo Gaol for their bronze award.
““We have a wonderful team of staff at the Old Dubbo Gaol that are extremely enthusiastic about delivering a quality and unique experience for their guests. This award is a true reflection of their passion for what they do,” Mr McMahon said.
The Dubbo Visitor Information Centre and the Shearing Shed Motor Inn were also finalists at the awards in their respective categories.
Western NSW Business Chamber Regional Manager Vicki Seccombe said the awards ‘truly highlights the strength of our tourism operators in our region’.
“We were so pleased to see such a high percentage of the winners at the NSW Tourism Awards coming from Western NSW.
“These awards are not easy to achieve and we congratulate all the winners,” Ms Seccombe said.
