Got a friend who lives in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne or Adelaide who hasn’t been able to visit for a long time? Now’s there chance to get here relatively cheaply thanks to the new ‘Escape To WA’ initiative offering out-of-state visitors discounts of up to 50 per cent when flying with Virgin Australia.
It’s all part of the McGowan Government’s ongoing Reconnect WA strategy, with ‘Escape To WA’ being a partnership between Virgin Australia and the WA Government through Tourism WA.
It’s hoped the initiative will inject more than $11 million into WA’s accommodation and tourism industry by boosting hotel occupancy rates and visitor spend.
The deal is available for one week from today at virginaustralia.com until June 27 (unless sold our prior), for travellers headed our way from August 1-September 15, and October 11-December 14.
One-way flights to Perth start from $119 from Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide.
“Our goal is to share our extraordinary part of the country with the rest of Australia and encourage visitors to experience the vast array of high-end and newly opened accommodation options in Perth and in our stunning regions,” said Tourism Minister Roger Cook.
