Banyule BestBiz Awards

Banyule Bestbiz Awards

We all interact with local businesses as we go about our day - picking up groceries, grabbing a coffee, visiting the GP, enjoying a meal out, getting a haircut, or even getting our taxes prepared by an accountant.

Having voted for your favourite local businesses in Banyule you gave a ‘shout out’ to them as part of the Banyule Bestbiz Awards. The awards recognise businesses across 8 categories. In each category, the business receiving the most votes will be the BestBiz category winner for 2018.
