Exmouth grabbed the Small Tourism Town award 2022

 Friday, September 16, 2022 


The leader of one of Western Australia’s well-known tourist communities has recently said that a national award is the best remuneration for the hard-working locals of the town.

At the Australian Tourism Awards, Exmouth, a small town located 1200-kilometres north of Perth, was named Small Tourism Town of the year. On Tuesday in Canberra, to accept the award, Shire President, Darlene Altston, explained that the award would mean a lot to this Australian town.

She said that being able to grab this award for our community and knowing that everyone did their best to provide that kind of experience is astonishing. She added that it’s simply amazing to get the award on a national stage for providing a wonderful tourism experience for their visitors.

Melbourne man, Elia Petzierides, while travelling in and around Australia with his family, said that the proximity of the town to the UNESCO Ningaloo Coast World Heritage Area was an important attraction.

He said that they got to swim with whales and sharks and they are fortunate enough to also score some manta rays at the same time. He said that he had asked his kids what they consider was the attraction and the aquarium hands down was the favourite.

He said that in their Australian trip, they’ve seen some pretty lame giant statues, so it surely is big enough.

For Evan Centanni, a backpacker, it was opportunities related to snorkeling which lured him to the area.
