Deputy mayor Hayley Edwards said the city was “thrilled” to be featuring in the awards two years running.

“The active pursuit of tourism and economic development is a key aspiration in our Strategic Community Plan, and the ongoing delivery of the key actions in our Tourist Destination Strategy 2019–2024 have been integral to ensuring the city returns to the most prestigious tourism awards event in WA,” Ms Edwards said.
