A LOCAL tourism identity will be flying the flag for regional NSW at the NSW Tourism Awards later this month.
Linda Tillman, of the Coolamon-based Tilma Group, has been named as a finalist in the Young Achiever category, up against finalists from Tweed Heads, Blue Mountains and Sydney.
Ms Tillman said she was passionate about tourism.
“The tourism industry is vibrant and exciting, with great opportunities for young professionals,” she said.
“Winning this award would be a great accolade for simply doing what I love in regional Australia.”
Judging for the title has been carried out by a panel of tourism professionals.
The winner will be announced at a gala awards night on Thursday, November 28 at Royal Randwick.
