To quote Mr Gschwind, “The strong list of nominations is testament to the resilience and strength of the Whitsunday community and the tourism industry in the region. We know operators in the Whitsundays, together with Tourism Whitsundays, have been working tirelessly to reopen businesses and promote the region.”
