Capricornia Tourism Wins Big in Queensland Tourism Awards

Member for Capricornia and Assistant Minister for Regional Tourism, Michelle Landry has congratulated tourism operators and event organisers in Capricornia on their well-earned wins at the Queensland Tourism Awards.

Ms Landry’s comments come after the Queensland Tourism Awards were held in Brisbane and Central Queensland operators and local governments won nine awards across multiple categories.

Ms Landry said the winners and all nominated tourism operators in Central Queensland have a great deal to be proud of.
