Additionally CanGoEverywhere was awarded bronze for New Tourism Development, Cape Byron State Conservation Area won silver for Tourist Attractions and Arakwal Dolphin Dreaming Cape Byron State Conservation Area grabbed silver for Indigenous Tourism.

Byron Beach Cafe owner Ben Kirkwood said, ‘We are extremely honoured to be named NSW’s Best Restaurant, not only for ourselves, but also for our local community.’

Managed by the Tourism Industry division of the NSW Business Chamber, the Tourism Awards celebrate the best of the best in the tourism industry and acknowledge businesses that demonstrate outstanding achievement throughout the year.
