Ettalong wins tourism town itinerary award

Ettalong has won a "judges' choice" award in the Top Tourism Town Awards at the Local Government NSW Destination and Visitor Economy Conference in Port Macquarie. While missing out on the Top Tourism Town award itself, Ettalong picked up an award for the "most compelling itinerary".

NSW Tourism Industry Council executive manager Mr Greg Binskin said the judges chose to make unexpected extra awards after being impressed by the high quality of the entries,

"Entrants submitted a short video, itinerary and editorial article which was reviewed by a

judging committee of 14 industry experts and it was always going to be very competitive with a field of 52 nominations," Mr Binskin said.

"The public then had their say, with more than 15,000 people casting a vote for their Top Tourism Town."

Judges' Choice awards were made for most inspiring editorial and most captivating video, as well as most compelling itinerary.

Ettalong's three-day itinerary starts with a morning coffee, and a bike ride along the Esplanade, followed by a visit to the Sicilian bakery.

An afternoon spa is then followed by an evening restaurant meal, staying overnight at the Mantra resort.

Breakfast at another coffee shop is followed by a morning on the water and a wholesome kiosk lunch.

The afternoon is spent at Ettalong markets, and dinner in a restaurant in the complex, the night is spent there as well.

The third day starts with visiting one-of-a-kind shops in Ocean View Rd, before "padding the waterways".

Lunch at a tea house is followed by a visit to Mt Ettalong.

After dinner at an Italian restaurant, thre itinerary suggests a stay in "the neighbouring village" of Umina Beach.
