Mainstreets and town centres, by their very nature, are all unique. In a world that seems to increasingly tend towards standardisation and homogenisation, this variety is what makes the mainstreet experience so refreshing.
This year there are 3 mainstreets, precincts and town centres in the running for the coveted People's Choice Award. Each of our vastly different nominees has its own unique style and offering, and they are all a testament to the variety and personality to be found in mainstreets and town centres all around South Australia. Before you cast your vote for the 2020 People's Choice Award read the information submitted by each of our nominees. You will find the voting button at the bottom of the page.
