Regional winners have an opportunity to progress to NSW or Australia judging.

A Tourism Symposium will be held at Pacific Bay Resort on the day of the awards and will offer a range of interesting workshops and presentations.

Submissions from the North Coast region close on May 25 with judging to take place during June.

Finalists will be announced on Wednesday, July 4.
