Queensland announces 30,000 holiday vouchers

The Queensland government has launched the latest round of its holiday dollars campaign to boost the embattled tourism sector.

The draw to win one of 30,000 vouchers to the value of $100 for Sunshine State residents opened at midday on Tuesday and will run until midnight Friday.

The gift will be available to spend on tourism experiences in the city’s greater region, including Brisbane City, Scenic Rim, Moreton Bay, Redlands Coast, Somerset, Logan and Ipswich.

Queenslanders over the age of 18 can enter the draw via queensland.com, and vouchers must be redeemed between May 6 and August 15, 2021.

The voucher will cover 50 per cent of the cost of eligible experiences – including accommodation, guided tours, adventure experiences, day spas, scenic flights and zoos – up to the value of $100.

An additional 6000 vouchers worth $200 for the Whitsundays have also been announced, with Queenslanders in the region from May 4 able to claim a voucher from local hotels or visitor information centres.

The vouchers can be used to claim 50 per cent off any eligible tourism experience booked, up to the value of $200.

The new travel vouchers come after a wildly successful campaign to drive travellers to the Cairns region, where more than 100,000 people applied for 15,000 vouchers valued at up to $200.
