Following the recent Murray River floods that hit South Australian communities hard, the SA State Government has announced a $4.6 million river tourism recovery plan that includes more than 25,000 travel vouchers to be released over three rounds in 2023.
The vouchers have been timed and staggered to allow tourism operators' preparation time for the increase in visitors and assist with sustaining bookings over a range of travel periods.
There will be one round of vouchers in each of autumn, winter and spring, and here is the rollout for round one:
- Ballot open: Monday 27 March 2023 - Wednesday 29 March 2023
- Ballot draw: Thursday, March 30
- Booking period: Thursday, March 30 – Friday, April 28
- Travel period: Friday, March 31 – Thursday, June 29
To be notified when the vouchers are available, sign up to the SA Gov newsletter here.
