The BestBiz Awards were established to promote and recognise Banyule businesses and reinforce the benefits of shopping, eating and doing business locally. As a people’s choice awards program, the community enthusiastically took the opportunity to vote for their favourite Banyule businesses in each of the eight categories. We also had great pleasure in providing an additional Mayoral Choice Award. The BestBiz Awards is just one of the many ways Council supports prospective and established businesses, helping them to thrive in Banyule.
