This year, South Australia is the first state to introduce an ‘EXCELLENCE IN ACCESSIBLE TOURISM’ category in the state awards program, open to South Australian tourism businesses or attractions delivering tourism products or services that are welcoming for people of all abilities. Entrants must demonstrate how they have developed a tourism experience to become more accessible.
The South Australian Tourism Awards are presented by the South Australian Tourism Industry Council and proudly supported by the South Australian Tourism Commission. Now in its 34th year the Awards celebrate and acknowledge tourism businesses that have demonstrated outstanding achievements and success throughout the year.
The South Australian Tourism Awards aim to:

- Encourage the continual raising of standards among tourism operators in South Australia
- Reinforce the value of the tourism industry

We are so excited about this award helping to build awareness around accessible tourism and shining a light on those businesses across the state who cater for all.
