The "Service Excellence Awards" were created in 2014 by the Rotary Club of Drysdale as a competition to reward excellence in customer service.
 
From 2017 onwards the Service Excellence Awards will be run in March each year covering the northern Bellarine towns / business areas of Drysdale, Clifton Springs, Curlewis, St Leonards, Indented Heads, Portarlington and Leopold.
All businesses nominated receive a framed certificate which includes quotes from their nominees.
 
The winning entry is judged on the basis of the ‘story’ about the quality of the service supplied. The winner receives a trophy and both the winner and their nominator receive a cash prize.
Previous winners are:
