QUEENSLANDERS can book heavily discounted holidays right around the state from Monday as the Government launches one of its biggest-ever tourism campaigns.

The 'Great Queensland Getaway' - an $8 million tourism campaign - will offer big discounts on flights, accommodation and tourism experiences to encourage Queenslanders to book a local holiday. The campaign is expected to generate $80 million for tourism businesses.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the Government was working hard to find new ways to support tourism businesses to make it through these challenging times.

There will be up to 50 per cent off tourism experiences, plus budget flights and Queensland bus passes.

Tourism Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said that with Queensland's two biggest customers - New South Wales and Victoria - unable to travel the new discounted travel offers were a great opportunity for Queenslanders

Partners in the campaign include Virgin Australia, Greyhound Australia, My Queensland, HelloWorld and Accor Hotels, with special deals on more than 100 of its properties.

Greyhound Australia is offering a five-day hop-on, hop-off Whimit pass for $75 which enables passengers to travel on a Greyhound coach to 50 destinations around the state, from Brisbane to Cairns and Rockhampton and out to Longreach.

The Great Queensland Getaway campaign is on sale until October 31 unless sold out sooner. Travel can be taken until December 12 (airfares) or through until January 23 and beyond (all other deals).
