WA State Gov offers $100 holiday vouchers to bolster tourism sector

Posted: 18th Sep

The State Government is offering West Aussies holiday vouchers for those willing to “wander out yonder”.

The unique promotion, amid the State’s closed border, is giving holidaymakers the chance to snag $100 vouchers towards tours and experiences within their own state.

The vouchers will be available from Monday, September 21, ahead of the school holidays, will be redeemable on a $200 minimum spend and must by the end of the year.

Winery tours, fishing charters, Aboriginal cultural tours, diving experiences and food tours will be among the WA experiences the vouchers can be used towards.

“You can see a side of WA you've never seen and support tourism operators who are doing it tough,” according to the Tourism WA website.

But, not everyone will get their hands on the vouchers.

The State Government says the discounts will be handed out on a “first in, best dressed” basis to the first 10,000 who register on the Tourism WA website at 10am.

Tourism Minister Paul Papalia said West Aussies have answered the call to “Wander out Yonder” and travel within WA and many accommodation providers were booked out in tourist hot spots.

“However, we know that some tour and experience operators are still doing it tough so we're encouraging Western Australians to use this incentive to tick a WA experience off their bucket list,” he said.
