Two of Griffith’s key operators were acknowledged as tourism leaders in the Riverina Murray region at the recent Regional Tourism Awards.

Quest Griffith was awarded gold in the Deluxe Accommodation category and Limone Dining was awarded silver in the Tourism Restaurants and Catering Services.

Griffith City Council Tourism and Events Committee Chairperson, Christine Stead, praised the local businesses.

“It’s fantastic to see Griffith doing so well in the regional tourism awards,” Cr Stead said.

“I congratulate the teams at Limone Dining and Quest for providing fantastic service and becoming leaders in the tourism industry in the region, in a relatively short period of time.”

“This acknowledgement is testament to the hard work and commitment that they put in to ensure they deliver the best possible service,” Cr Dal Broi said.

“It is wonderful to see them going from strength to strength. Well done to everyone at both Quest and Limone Dining, keep doing what you are doing, you have done the city proud.”
