Western Australia has finally opened its borders to international travellers, it is one of the last states to open its doors after a strict 2-year border restriction.
In hopes of creating an exciting experience for international passengers, The State Government will be giving away more than $500,000 worth of vouchers for WA’s most attractive tourist spots when the borders will open this week. In celebration of the border opening, Tourism WA will hand out 3400 of the ‘Gifts From Western Australia’ – two-person vouchers, valued from $150 to $2200 for a three-day tour within the Margaret River.
The vouchers will be handed out to incoming passengers at Pert Airport and the campaign will showcase and encourage travellers to support local tourism operations during their trip. WA has breathtaking attractions you can showcase to your clients, some of the locations include Skydiving at Rottnest Islands, Trips to the Pinnacles and swimming with dolphins.
Passengers who are travelling via Qantas can expect a toy quokka on the first few flights from Sydney and Melbourne, promoting the Rottnest Island and ‘The World’s Happiest Animal’. There are only 200 being distributed so make sure your clients are booked at the earliest flights.
After Western Australia’s borders open, fully vaccinated interstate and international travellers can enjoy a quarantine free stay as Premier Mark McGowan stated the State Government wants visitors to ‘experience all we can offer’. The tourism operators will be benefiting from the boost of international travellers WA will have.
Tourism Minister, Roger Cook stated the vouchers will act as a perk for travellers, it will encourage them to explore WA, therefore supporting local tourism operators “Western Australia is a place like no other, and these vouchers will encourage the first arrivals to explore the stunning coastlines, famous food and wine, unique art and culture, and ancient Aboriginal history,” he said. This is the perfect opportunity and experience for a traveller visiting Western Australia for the first time. We encourage all our travel agents to customise a suitable travel plan for their clients to visit WA to get a chance at winning a travel voucher and obtaining a toy quokka. It is a great occasion for international travellers to explore WA like never before all the while supporting local tourism operators.
