RACQ People’s Choice Awards

This year we are entering the Queensland Tourism Industry Council tourism awards. We think that the Savannahlander and the people in the region who contribute to this amazing experience deserve a little recognition especially after all that has happened to the industry over the last year or so.

As part of this, we are also entered into the “People’s Choice” awards which are judged by you – our fans and customers!
