The 2023 South Australian Tourism Awards finalists have been revealed, shining the spotlight on some of our state’s best tourism operators.

The 80 finalists span over 30 different categories, representing a cross-section of the South Australian tourism industry including accommodation providers, tour operators, festivals & events and more.

The South Australian Tourism Awards program, delivered annually by Tourism Industry Council South Australia (TiCSA), recognises business excellence and outstanding achievement in the state’s tourism industry.

TiCSA Chief Executive Officer Shaun de Bruyn congratulated this year’s finalists, stating that

“The South Australian Tourism Awards finalists have consistently demonstrated business excellence, innovation, and commitment to delivering quality customer experiences.”

“As we celebrate their achievements, we also recognise the impact they have on shaping South Australia’s reputation as a world-class destination.”

Minister for Tourism, Zoe Bettison said it is wonderful to see such a high calibre of tourism offerings across South Australia.

“Congratulations to all of the 2023 South Australian Tourism Award finalists, who demonstrate the incredible range and quality of businesses across the tourism sector, including accommodation, tours, events, and more,” Minister Bettison said.

“Our state’s impressive tourism offerings help motivate visitors from all over to commit to a trip to South Australia, helping boost visitation as we work to grow our visitor economy to $12.8 billion by 2030.”
