History of the People's Choice Award

The BlueMountainsAustralia.com People’s Choice Award runs annually as part of the Blue Mountains Regional Chamber Business Awards.

The BlueMountainsAustralia.com People’s Choice Award is the only award won by votes from the public.

Now running for over 10 years the BlueMountainsAustralia.com People’s Choice Award has seen two businesses entered into the Hall of Fame, as they were voted the most popular Blue Mountains business over 3 consecutive years.

Bygone Beautys Treasured Teapot Museum & Tearooms were 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. Bygone Beautys is a very strong supporter of the local community.
