Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said now is the right time to book a holiday as she unveiled the $8 million tourism campaign, named the Great Queensland Getaway, on Thursday.
“I’ve seen firsthand the significant impact the pandemic has had on tourism businesses right throughout the state,” she said.
“We’re working hard to find new ways to support tourism businesses to make it through these challenging times.
The Queensland government has launched a massive tourism campaign with big discounts on flights, accommodation and experiences to encourage locals to holiday in the Sunshine State
“This campaign will entice thousands of Queenslanders to get out and explore their own state.”
The bargain prices will be available on from Monday, with up to 50 per cent off tourism experiences, as well as budget flights and bus passes.
“There’s never been a better excuse to book a Queensland holiday,” the Premier said.
Ms Palaszczuk said the campaign is expected to generate $80 million for tourism businesses.
Tourism Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said the Great Queensland Getaway is part of the Palaszczuk Government’s COVID-19 Economic Recovery Plan for tourism.
“With our two biggest customers – New South Wales and Victoria unable to travel – this is a great opportunity for Queenslanders to explore our state and support tourism operators,” Mr Hinchliffe said.
“Being part of the Great Queensland Getaway helps local businesses in tourism destinations across the state.”
The Great Queensland Getaway campaign goes on sale at 9.00am AEST Monday October 18 and is on sale until 6.00pm AEST Sunday October 31 unless sold out sooner.
Travel can be taken from October 18 until December 12 2021 (airfares) or through until January 23 2022 and beyond (all other deals).
