New funding boost for WA tourism and regional aviation

The package includes the $2.85 million recently announced to drive more interstate and intrastate travellers to holiday in Western Australia, in response to east coast bushfires and the novel coronavirus.

While the economic impacts resulting from this issue are still unknown, the decision to take swift action follows the Federal Government’s decision to expand travel advice and apply more prohibitions to Australian borders in recent weeks, due to the novel coronavirus.
