Lucky recipients of the Brisbane Holiday Dollars vouchers are being encouraged to use them to explore the naturally wonderful Redlands Coast during the September school holidays or long weekend in October.
Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said the vouchers, which offered 50 per cent off tours, attractions or accommodation up to the value of $100, provided the perfect incentive for visitors and locals to holiday close to home.
“The vouchers are valid at participating local tourism operators throughout the greater Brisbane area, which includes Redlands Coast,” Cr Williams said.
“There is a great range of local operators to choose from, including fishing and yacht cruises, boutique island and hinterland accommodation, island tours, surfing lessons, a winery, day spa and Quandamooka cultural experiences.
“Brisbane Holiday Dollars can make these experiences even more appealing.
“COVID-19 has had a major impact on our local tourism operators and businesses during the past 18 months and these vouchers, provided in partnership with the State Government, Brisbane Economic Development Agency, Tourism and Events Queensland and Redland City Council, provide a welcome boost.
“Recent COVID restrictions have meant the voucher booking and travel periods have been extended, but bookings must be made by next Tuesday 31 August, for travel or use by 4 October.
“This means they can be used during the school holidays, which start on 18 September, or on the Queen’s Birthday long weekend from 2-4 October.
“I encourage voucher holders to take advantage of this great opportunity to explore more of our unique backyard and support our fabulous local tourism operators.”
