WCWR Wins Gold!

The West Coast Wilderness Railway is proud to have taken gold in the Tourist Attractions category of the 2022 Tasmanian Tourism Awards on Friday night in Hobart.
The award comes as the railway considers the recent havoc of the COVID pandemic and gears up for a strong summer season.

Speaking at the awards event, WCWR General Manager Anthony Brown reflected following the awards announcement.

“It’s been hard on everyone and the team have really pulled together and kept us going … That’s probably the biggest thing, it’s such a credit to everyone.”

West Coast Wilderness Railway would like to congratulate Gorge Scenic Chairlift in Launceston for placing silver in the same category. Similarly, congratulations to all entrants, finalists and winners of the remaining categories!

Category winners advance to the Australian Tourism Awards in March 2023, where national level winners will be announced.
