Echuca restaurant shines on national stage

Federal Member for Murray Dr Sharman Stone paid tribute to Echuca’s Oscar W’s, a winner in Monday night’s Savour Australia Restaurant & Catering HOSTPLUS Awards for Excellence 2012.

The popular Wharfside Redgum Grill and Deck Bar was a winner in the categories, Regional Victoria - Contemporary Australian Restaurant - Informal, and the 2012 Victoria Wine List Awards - Informal Dining - Comprehensive.

Sharman Stone said the Awards for Excellence were a vital support and recognition of industry efforts towards ‘platinum plus’ service goals, a target set by Joe Hockey’s tourism white paper ten years ago.

“This is the 15th year the Awards for Excellence program has run across the country recognising over 1400 businesses from 14 metropolitan and regional areas” Sharman Stone said.

“The Oscar W’s win is a source of pride for the Echuca District, and shows we can offer the best of dining experiences.

“Savour Australia Restaurant & Catering HOSTPLUS Awards for Excellence drives continuous improvement by recognising achievement. “It helps hospitality employees see the sector for what it is - a great employment option that fosters creativity, offers travel opportunities, and a variety of career paths” Sharman Stone said.
