York and Toodyay take out the leading spots for the top tourism town awards nominations.

York and Toodyay tourism awards finalists

The public vote is combined with votes from judges to decide the overall winners for this year's top tourism town awards.
May 2, 2024

THE historic town of York has been selected this week as a finalist in this year’s 7News small tourism town category, competing against nearby historic Toodyay, along with Exmouth, Carnarvon, Tom Price and Christmas Island.

Voting now open in the 2024 7News ‘top tourism town awards’ with 19 towns from across the state being named finalists across three categories in the highly coveted awards program.

The public can vote online for their favourite town or city and go into the draw to win a $5,000 holiday in Western Australia or a two-night stay at RAC Karri Valley Resort.

Tourism Council WA chief executive officer Evan Hall encouraged the public to get behind their favourite holiday destination.

“It could be a town you’ve recently discovered, but where you felt incredibly welcomed in your time there – or it could be the place you visit every year because you always have a fantastic experience. This is your chance to have your say.”

The public vote is combined with votes from an industry panel of judges to decide which destinations will receive the titles of top tourism town, small tourism town and tiny tourism town.

The winning destinations will go into a national competition against winners from other states for the chance to be named Australia’s top tourism town, small tourism town or tiny tourism town.

Visit this website to review the finalists and to make your vote count. Voting closes 5pm, May 22.
