Geraldton has claimed silver in the 2023 7NEWS Top Tourism Town Awards for a second year in a row, coming just short of gold which Mandurah secured whilst bronze was taken out by Collie.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn thanked everyone who voted.

“We are proud to claim silver for a second year in a row and really appreciate everyone who voted for our seaside city in the Awards,” he said.

“Geraldton has had a big 12 months tourism-wise with cruise ships returning, the third Shore Leave Festival taking place as well as a sense of normality returning to the industry.

“Congratulations Mandurah – we will remain hot on your tail until we get the gold! In the meantime, we will continue to support our tourism industry and promote our slice of paradise near and far.”

Geraldton was presented with the award at the 2023 Perth Airport WA Regional Tourism Conference Dinner in Kalgoorlie-Boulder on Tuesday evening.

The Awards recognise destinations with a strong commitment to tourism and increasing visitation in their locality.

Winners from each state will now progress to the national awards, which are being held later this year.
