A handful of local tourism operators have scooped awards from the North Coast Destination Network awards night held in Port Macquarie last Saturday.
One of the winners, Cameron Arnold from Apartments Inn, told Echonetdaily, ‘It was again a strong presence by Byron Shire tourism operators.’
Byron Bay Eco Cruises and Kayaks (BBECK) also scooped up an award. BBECK’s Simon Freeden said the win was recognition of the company’s ‘commitment to environmental sustainability’.
Spell wins award
And local clothing company Spell and Gypsy Collective have won the 2016 Telstra NSW Business of the Year.
Created by sisters Elizabeth Abegg and Isabella Pennefather, the company is fast becoming recognised in global fashion circles for its grassroots approach.
