Albany snares spot as top WA destination image

16 January 2019

Albany has won runner up in Wotif.com’s 2019 Aussie Town of the Year Awards, a close second to Port Fairy in Victoria and the only Western Australian town to make the list.

The Australian booking website ranks destinations across the country based on accommodation affordability, tourist demand and traveller reviews.

With a mix of coastal and in-land towns from right across Australia recognised in the awards, Albany stands out from the crowd with amazing beaches and a rich history to explore.

City of Albany Deputy Mayor Greg Stocks was delighted with news of the award and encouraged all travellers to explore The Amazing South Coast region.

“We are thrilled Albany is the top runner up in this year’s Wotif Aussie Town of the Year awards,” Cr Stocks said. “It’s going to be a big year for us in 2019 and a great time to visit.

“The Field of Light: Avenue of Honour has been a huge attraction so far with more than 80,000 visitors and will remain open until Anzac Day, and there is so much else to see and do as well, it’s an amazing destination.”

Cr Stocks said the award was a credit to the many local tourism operators, service providers, businesses and residents that make our city welcoming and friendly.
