It’s not often a regional centre is highlighted in the Luxury Accommodation category of the NSW Tourism Awards but that is exactly what happened last Thursday night when one of Corowa’s greatest hidden treasures, CIRCA 1936, was recognised with a bronze award.
During the presentations Minister for Tourism and Major Events Adam Marshall emphasised the importance of tourism to the NSW economy valuing its annual contribution at more than $33 billion in international and domestic visitor expenditure.
It’s obvious the team’s mission statement ‘Circa 1936 aims to deliver 19th century service, 20th century style, 21st century facilities’ has established a new benchmark for hospitality in regional Australia.
It should be noted that the luxury accommodation category is the highest yardstick by which hotels are measured.
While locals and others in the know have been enjoying the full range of services available at this stunning boutique hotel for ages, the award acknowledges Corowa’s tourism offering as actually delivering a product and service equal to anything anywhere in Australia and probably the world.
