The South West will be featured in a new campaign to encourage West Australians to holiday at home as COVID-19 shuts down interstate travel.

The State Government will launch the Relook and Book campaign on Monday to support regions and operators with vacancies in the South West, Ningaloo, Kimberley and Perth.

As part of the campaign Tourism WA will partner with Webjet to offer a $100 discount to the first 3000 flights booked on its platform.

Tourism Minister David Templeman said it was important to West Australians to support local as case numbers continue to rise in Victoria and NSW.

"We know tourism operators are still feeling the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, with the recent outbreaks in the Eastern States impacting bookings here in Western Australia,” he said.

"Western Australians wandered out yonder in great numbers last year and our tourism industry welcomes everyone's ongoing local support.

"I encourage anyone who has been thinking about a holiday to relook and book, with accommodation and tour options opening up in our regional areas, such as Kununurra as well as other parts of the State including the South-West and the city.”
