South West Wanderer Pass Incentive Program

By February 18, 2022 March 24th, 2022 Get Involved, Industry News & Updates

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 via Jetstar post-booking EDM’s and incentive campaigns in partnership with Tourism WA and Australia’s South West.
