Voting has now opened for Queensland’s Top Tourism Towns and three from the Moreton Bay Region have made the finals. It’s now up to local businesses, residents and visitors to do their bit to make sure they win.
The finalists for Queensland’s Top Tourism Towns have been announced in two categories – Top Tourism Town (population more than 5000) and Small Tourism Town (population less than 5000).
Bribie Island and Redcliffe have been named in the Top Tourism Town category while Woodford was named a finalist in the Small Tourism Town Category.
There are 37 towns in the running for the awards hosted by the Queensland Tourism Industry Council (QTIC), recognising and celebrating towns that offer an amazing visitor experience. Here are our region's three finalists.
As you cross Pumicestone Passage, you’re entering a world steeped in history, rich in wildlife and natural beauty and filled with memorable adventures. Shake off the city life, wind down the windows and take in the fresh sea air to begin your magical getaway on Bribie Island. View the Bribie Island submission here.
There is always a sense of excitement on the red rock-fringed peninsula - whether it's in the town's mouth-watering flavours, passionate sporting rivalries or electric events and festivals. Feel relaxed as you take in the sparkling waters, catch sight of people fishing from the remnants of the Hornibrook Bridge or spot kayakers enjoying a morning paddle.

Home to the internationally recognised Woodford Folk Festival, Woodford and its surrounds are the perfect destination all year round. Don't be fooled by the township's classic charm and rustic feel. It's not your average Queensland country town. Nestled in the Moreton Bay Region hinterland, it's a gateway to award-winning wineries, breathtaking hinterland walking trails, idyllic natural swimming holes, the freshest of produce and a bustling fine dining scene - perfect all year round.
