Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has announced a scheme that will see Queenslanders given a $200 voucher to spend on holidays in Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef. The voucher scheme will cover travel from 15 March to 25 June, with 15,000 vouchers available from 8 to 11 March. In announcing the scheme, Palaszczuk repeated her call for the federal government to extend its JobKeeper program for industries such as tourism beyond its scheduled end of 28 March, while Queensland Tourism Industry Council CEO Daniel Gschwin said other parts of Queensland would also benefit from a voucher scheme.
