Only 3 Days Left to Vote for Your Favourite Blue Mountains Business for 2018
The winner will be announced at the Blue Mountains Business Awards on Friday 2nd November 2018.
The BlueMountainsAustralia.com People’s Choice Award is the only award won by votes from the public.
Now in its 11th year the BlueMountainsAustralia.com People’s Choice Award has seen two businesses entered into the Hall of Fame, as they were each voted the most popular Blue Mountains business over 3 consecutive years.
Bygone Beautys Treasured Teapot Museum & Tearooms was the first business to receive Hall of Fame status after their third consecutive win in 2011. Bygone Beautys is an antique emporium and tearoom, housing the world's largest private teapot collection. Beginning 40 years ago there are now 3,000 teapots on display with 4,500 in the collection, spanning five centuries with exhibits from every continent.
Rubyfruit won the Peoples' Choice Award in 2012, 2013 & 2014. Rubyfruit was a popular vegan cafe in Leura that offered a range of delicious meals, indulgent sweets, coffee, super smoothies and grocery items. To the dissapointment of their many regulars, Rubyfruit's owners announced in January 2018 that they would be closing the businesses to concentrate on spending more quality time with their family.
Glen Isla Luxury Blue Mountains Accommodation won the People's Choice Award in 2016 and 2017 and are in the running to enter the People's Choice Award Hall of Fame if they are successful again this year.
The 12th Blue Mountains Business Awards are presented by the Blue Mountains Regional Business Chamber to celebrate the success of small business in our region. Major sponsors are Scenic World, Blue Mountains City Council, Belle Property Group, Digital Age Lawyers, and Fairmont Resort. Media Partner: Blue Mountains Gazette.
