Flight giveaway to entice NSW visitors to SA

In celebration of the South Australian borders reopening to New South Wales and to entice our state's newest domestic market to SA, the South Australian Tourism Commission in conjunction with Qantas and Qantas Hotels, and in partnership with Nova 96.9’s Fitzy & Wippa breakfast show, is giving away five daily major holiday packages to South Australia.

Launching on 28 September, the competition will run through the week on-air, as well as online at novafm.com.au. In addition to the five holiday packages, as South Australia is truly a destination 'you have to see to believe', we’re making this great state even more accessible to would-be travellers, giving away an additional 200 free return economy Qantas flights from Sydney to Adelaide.

After months of border restrictions, we look forward to reuniting families and welcoming back friends from NSW. It’s been months since NSW residents have had the green light to come to our great state – home to great food and wine, unique experiences such as shark cage diving and the d’Arenberg Cube, and world-class accommodation.

“From vineyard tours in the Barossa, to luxury lodges on Kangaroo Island, glamping in the Flinders and diving with sharks in Port Lincoln, NSW residents can now discover the state’s world-class gourmet options, jaw dropping landscapes, abundant wildlife, vibrant city life and iconic coastal culture,” said South Australian Tourism Commission chief executive Rodney Harrex.

“We have operators who are already taking strong bookings from NSW, so this is a great chance to jump on a plane, get down to Adelaide and experience all that we have on offer.”

With iconic new hotels opening like the Adelaide Oval Hotel, Crowne Plaza and the EOS by SkyCity, changing the Adelaide CBD landscape and offering a brand-new city experience, now is the time to come to Adelaide, South Australia and reward your wonder, for free.

NSW is South Australia’s second largest domestic market and since the announcement of borders reopening, southaustralia.com visits from NSW are up by 39% compared to the previous week, which shows a strong demand for travel to South Australia from NSW.

Visitors from NSW spend more than $779 million each year in South Australia – second only to Victoria. And with the school holidays upon us, and Adelaide’s first NRL State of Origin match in November, there’s never been a better time to come and see our #GreatState.
