If you regularly keep up with everything Canberra, you probably would have seen that OutInCanberra’s annual People’s Choice Awards are in full swing!

Giving power to the people, we want Canberrans to have their voice heard by voting for their favourite among our various categories in the hospitality and tourism industry.

If you’re yet to vote, we encourage you to get typing, as we want to see your favourite venue named the people’s favourite! Plus, every voter goes into the draw to win one of ten $100 dinner experiences!

As always, our six main category winners of favourite restaurant, café, nightlife, entertainment, event & attraction and local product will be invited to accept their awards at the Canberra Region Tourism Awards on Friday 24 November 2023.

With sub-category winners also up for grabs, winners of a main category will be unable to take home a sub-category nomination, making room for more local love.


Favourite Restaurant: Akiba

Favourite Café: Gather Café

Favourite Nightlife: Hopscotch

Favourite Entertainment: Kingpin Canberra

Favourite Event & Attraction: Royal Australian Mint

Favourite Local Product: Capital Brewing Co.

This year, the awards are bought to you by our gold sponsor, Belconnen’s new Capital Food Market and silver sponsor, multipurpose ordering platform, Stokl. Like us, our sponsors are committed to the Canberra community, recognising the importance of celebrating the incredible achievements of our local businesses in the hospitality and tourism industry.

Voting ends on Thursday 16 November. VOTE NOW!
