If you’ve been thinking about a visit to Tasmania it seems like there’s no better time than right now!
After Virgin recently announced crazy cheap $149 one-way air fares direct from Perth to Hobart, today comes news of new $300 tourism vouchers for residents in WA, SA and QLD. A joint initiative between the Australian and Tasmanian government, it’s to encourage travellers to visit the Apple Isle during the months of December and November.
Recipients of the Tassie Holiday Voucher program will get $300 to use while travelling, split up as $200 for accommodation and $100 for tours and attractions. The vouchers will be issued via an online ballet, with recipients being able to redeem it through a Tassie Holiday Voucher online marketplace.
Senator for Tasmania, Jonno Duniam said, “Australians are keen to get travelling again and Tasmania is open for business… There has never been a better time to come down to Tassie, visit some of our incredible natural wonders, and taste some of our fabulous food, wine, and whisky.”
Tasmanian Premier Peter Gutwein has maintained the borders to states with COVID-19 in the community will remain closed, with an official reopening plan coming soon.
