For the second year running, Peninsula Hot Springs has been recognised as a leader in its field, winning the award for ‘Best Tourist Attraction’ at the prestigious RACV Victorian Tourism Awards.
The annual event was held at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on Monday 11 November with 900 tourism industry members attending.
Peninsula Hot Springs Charles Davidson was thrilled with the result; “We are honoured to have been recognised once again by the Victorian tourism community. It is a reflection of the passion and clear vision of the entire team at the hot springs. It is another step and a new milestone in the evolution of the Peninsula Hot Springs story.” Queen Victoria Market, Phillip Island Chocolate Factory and the Cape Otway Lighthouse were amongst the finalists in the most highly contested tourist attraction category.
The RACV Victorian Tourism Awards celebrate businesses in Victoria which strive for tourism excellence. The awards provide an industry framework for peer recognition which fosters a culture for business excellence and innovation.
The Mornington Peninsula region showcased its talents with eight winners and four as finalists in a diverse range of categories from transport, tourism experiences, accommodation, food and eco-tourism.
“It’s a close-knit community and we all support one another to create a truly unique tourism experience for visitors to the (Mornington) Peninsula. I’m proud to be part of an industry that makes such a significant contribution to our local economy.” said Mr Davidson.
Peninsula Hot Springs is the first natural hot springs and day spa centre in Victoria, just over an hour’s drive from Melbourne. Natural thermal mineral waters flow from deep underground into the pools and private baths, providing the idyllic setting for relaxation and rejuvenation.
Peninsula Hot Springs is now set to contest the February 2013 National Tourism Awards in Sydney.
