Tonight’s Australian Travel Awards have sold out!

It’s been long-anticipated, and now the wait is over.

The Australian Travel Awards are TONIGHT!

And if you’ve left it far too last minute, we’re sorry. Tickets have officially sold out!

We can’t thank everyone enough for the support of this inaugural event, and we’re overjoyed to be able to celebrate the myriad of companies that make the Aussie travel industry so great.

We can also promise this will be the best gala you’ll attend all year. Forget boring speeches, this awards night will be one to remember. Plus, it’s a great end-of-year celebration! The Australian Travel Awards is the perfect chance for the industry to let off some steam and party the night away – and we couldn’t be more excited.

Especially because (in case you didn’t read the headline properly) it’s tonight!

Doors open at 6pm at Paddington Town Hall, Sydney – so if you’ve dropped the ball and mixed up the date, you have a whole six hours to grab an outfit and get yourself ready for the best industry party around.

Oh, and don’t forget – there are also some shiny trophies up for grabs and one massive Grand Prix Award for the most impressive entry overall – and we can’t wait to see who takes these awards home. 35 categories cover the full gamut of the industry, with categories (like innovation) that no other awards have.

The shortlist has a ton of amazing companies on it – check the full list out right hereFind all other info on the website here.

We’ll see all your lovely faces tonight! Make sure you use the hashtag #AustralianTravelAwards during the event too.

And a big shout out to our sponsors who’ve made this event possible. Thanks guys!
