Get ready to set your clocks because you won't want to miss this.

Western Australians can see their own magnificent backyard for less thanks to a new government incentive scheme.

The "A million reasons to Wander out Yonder" vouchers are here to save you money while also helping to boost the tours and experience industry.

As of 10am Monday 21 September, residents of Western Australia can get their hands on 10,000 vouchers worth $100 each.

The government is hoping that this will encourage people to get out and about just in time for the school holidays.

How does the voucher work?

So here's the breakdown. To be eligible for this offer you have to be a resident of Western Australia and over the age of 18. A form of identification may be asked for verification.

Each recipient who spends $100 on an experience or tour, gets $100 off the total (product must be worth a minimum of $200). The incentive will work on a first-in, best dressed basis with Western Australians needing to register from the strike of 10am come Monday 21 September 2020.

The lucky winners will receive an email confirming the voucher, so you'll want to keep this safe. Bear in mind that the email holds instructions on how to redeem your voucher.

Experiences and tours can be booked via email, phone or in person at any participating visitor centres.

You'll have until 31 October 2020 to have your booking locked in and must complete it before the end of the year.

It's important to note that the vouchers can only be redeemed at the participating visitor centres and not directly through the experience provider.

What experiences and tours are eligible?

Your voucher can be used for a plethora of activities, including but not limited to:

  • Winery tours
  • Fishing charters
  • Aboriginal cultural tours
  • Diving experiences
  • Food tours

Tourism minister, Paul Papalia, has said that although accommodation sites across the state are thriving, "we know that some tour and experience operators are still doing it tough so we're encouraging Western Australians to use this incentive to tick a WA experience off their bucket list".

This isn't the first time state governments have brought out travel vouchers, with Tasmania and the Northern Territory already on the bandwagon.

Sort out the entire holiday with a selection of Australia travel deals at your fingertips.
