The “Escape to WA” incentive is part of the State Government’s $195 million Reconnect WA package and Tourism WA’s $12 million Wander Out Yonder marketing push.
The campaign targets travellers in the Eastern States who are looking to visit friends and relatives in Western Australia, as well as those who want to holiday in Australia instead of overseas.
