The RACV Energy Breakthrough has won the silver medal at the 2014 QANTAS Australian Tourism Awards in the Festival and Events category. The Award was announced at a Gala Ceremony held at the Adelaide Convention Centre on Friday April 10.
Enjoying the Awards Ceremony and pictured above (L-R) are Country Education Project staffer and RACV Energy Breakthrough Convenor, John Stafford, with wife, Liz Stafford; Central Goldfields Shire Mayor, Wendy McIvor; and Central Goldfields Shire Council Recreation Manager and Energy Breakthrough Executive Member, Martin Mark.
To be a finalist in the National Awards, an event must win their respective state tourism awards, as the RACV Energy Breakthrough did for the second year in a row last October at the RACV Victorian Tourism Awards.
It’s one step up the national podium for the RACV Energy Breakthrough, following the Bronze medal won in 2013.
So, Gold next year perhaps?
