Choose QLD: Flight subsidies for Tropical North Queensland
Tourism Tropical North Queensland has announced $100 flight subsidies for interstate visitors over the next four months.

Chief Executive Officer Mark Olsen said the subsidy would be available from today for travel before November 20 to help the regional economy.“Interstate travellers booking on any airline with Webjet before July 31 are eligible for the $100 subsidy, although the campaign may sell out earlier as we anticipate there will be strong demand,” he said.

“International visitors have started to trickle back with the addition of direct flights from New Zealand and Japan this month, but we are still a long way from recouping the $1 billion international travel market for the destination.

“We have seen many first timers arrive in Cairns this year and others who have not visited in more than a decade and they have been wowed by the maturity of the destination and its extraordinary array of world-class experiences.

“This is bringing a new wave of advocates for a Tropical North Queensland holiday who realise that a week is nowhere near enough time to explorer the Great Barrier Reef, the world’s oldest rainforest and the accessible outback.

“Travellers are discovering that Tropical North Queensland is a sustainable luxury destination.” This project received grant funding from the Australian Government, under the Recovery for Regional Tourism program administered by Austrade.
