Kathryn Mackenzie Award

Applications are now open and close 31st July. 

This award recognises the outstanding contribution by an individual to the Bendigo tourism industry.

Kathryn Mackenzie was the Executive Manager of Tourism with the City of Greater Bendigo for 25 years, during which time Bendigo became one of the most visited destinations in Australia.

In 2015 Kathryn received the RACV Victorian Tourism Award for her Outstanding Contribution by an Individual to the Victorian tourism industry.

Open to individuals working professionally or voluntarily in the local tourism industry, the award is presented annually to recognise the efforts of someone in the industry who has made a big difference.
