WA government are welcoming Perth arrivals with more than $500,000 worth of free WA tourism vouchers.
More than $500,000 worth of free tourism vouchers will be handed out at Perth Airport this week to welcome interstate and international arrivals – providing a major boost to local tourism operators as borders ease.
The McGowan Government promotion, through Tourism WA, will begin after midnight on March 3 and encourage visitors to support local tour and experience businesses during their trip to Western Australia.
“When interstate and international travel returns in full on March 3, we want to encourage visitors to experience all we can offer, while ensuring local tourism operators enjoy the benefits,” said Mr McGowan.
The campaign will provide 3,400 ‘Gifts From Western Australia’ two-person vouchers, ranging in value from $150 to $2,200 for a three-day tour of Margaret River.
The vouchers offer tourism experiences from about 20 different operators, including skydiving at Rottnest Island, swimming with dolphins or touring Penguin Island, as well as sunset stargazing at the Pinnacles.
The giveaway includes 1,000 vouchers for StudyPerth to target to international students.
Tourism WA is also delivering 200 toy quokkas to Qantas to be distributed on the first flights from Sydney and Melbourne, promoting Rottnest Island and ‘The World’s Happiest Animal’ to WA arrivals.
WA’s full border opening will allow for safe travel from interstate and overseas from 12.01am March 3, with vaccination and testing requirements on arrival – the softest landing off the back of WA’s world-leading vaccination rate.
“The McGowan Government is proud to present visitors with these ‘Gifts from Western Australia’ – the first of many initiatives to attract international and interstate visitors back to our State,” said Tourism Minister Roger Cook.
