Congratulations to all of our winners of the Central Highlands Business Excellence Awards.

On Saturday 28 October 2017, more than 200 representatives from across the Central Highlands gathered to celebrate the successes of local industry and showcase the best in business. After a nine-month nomination and judging process, we were excited to reveal the winners to a packed auditorium.

Strong businesses bring life and vitality to the region and across the Awards process, it was evident that our business community is healthy and thriving. We congratulate all of the businesses who nominated, and particularly the finalists for their dedication in growing our region.

A selection of images from the evening is now available here.
