South West Wanderer Pass Incentive Program

The South West Wanderer Pass and Jetstar Campaign announced on 14 July will continue despite the further postponement of the Jetstar Melbourne-Busselton route. Voucher registrations have been strong since the launch of the campaign, and we are expecting visitors to delay redemptions until closer to their date of travel to Busselton from Melbourne.

We encourage tour, attraction and experience operators to get involved in the campaign.

About the Program

The program supports tour, attraction and experience businesses in Australia’s South West that have been negatively affected by the pandemic. Funded by the State Government, through Tourism WA, the program is being delivered by Australia’s South West in partnership with Margaret River Busselton Tourism Association.

Businesses will be supported through a $250,000 program distributing a $100 ‘South West Wanderer Pass’ per-itinerary for passengers travelling the Melbourne to Busselton Jetstar route. This pass is redeemable against eligible tours, attractions and experiences. There is no minimum spend required, to enable vouchers to be more readily redeemed across the full range of the region’s experiences.

The campaign will be promoted through advertising on television, Melbourne metro radio stations and a series of digital channels.

More information about the campaign is available here. (Please note: Dates and details may change in line with the postponing of the flight route).
