Libby Coker MP At Parliament House Canberra and Accessible Accommodation

Accessible Accommodation were thrilled that Libby Coker, Member of Parliament representing the Corangamite Region celebrated our win at the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards in her speech in Parliament House, Canberra today.

Here is the transcript:

The Electorate of Corangamite in Victoria is a beautiful place home to the Great Ocean Road, the stunning surf coast and the Bellarine Peninsula. Our hospitality and excellence in tourism is well known. Our message to visitors is come and experience our unique natural beauty taste the flavours and quality of our food and wine and of course.

And it's a message that is reflected in the extraordinary achievement of three local businesses who won gold, silver and bronze at the recent Australian Tourism Awards in Darwin and as chair of the NDIS Joint Standing Committee, I was thrilled to congratulate the silver medal winner, Kerry Williams, who took out the accessible tourism category. This result reflects Kerry's hard work, determination and excellence not only in enhancing our region's tourism industry, but also in leading the way in creating tourism accommodation that is inclusive and accessible for all.

Her award is well deserved and I'm confident her success will inspire others to create to create innovative, accessible accommodation that supports people with disability. And it's a great business opportunity that addresses growing demand, deputy speaker Australia's tourism and travel industry delivers more than 60 Billion dollars to the economy and supports more than 650,000 jobs and 350,000 businesses across the country.

The Australian Tourism Awards are an opportunity to recognise the significance in our of the sector and importantly, it shows the work of business owners and staff who work hard each and every day.
