Australia.com was recognised at this year's World Travel Awards (WTA), being voted World's Leading Tourism Authority Website by more than 220,000 travel agents and other industry professionals from over 175 countries.

Tourism Australia Managing Director Andrew McEvoy said the award reflected the national tourism organisation's increasing leadership within digital marketing tourism, and followed a major refresh of the website earlier in the year.

Tourism Australia was also nominated for World's Leading Tourism Board and World's Leading Destination Marketing Campaign for its current There's nothing like Australia campaign.

Attached along with this mail is a press release to give you a further insight into the event.

World Travel Awards was founded in 1993 to recognise, acknowledge and reward excellence in the travel, tourism and hospitality industry worldwide.

The votes are cast by travel, tourism and hospitality professionals and the consumer traveller whether leisure or business. A vote cast by a registered travel agency employee carries a weighting of two whilst the consumer vote counts as one vote.
