Tasmanian residents will be able to claim vouchers for intrastate tourism activities from September 7 through the Make Yourself At Home travel voucher scheme.
The vouchers will be available for accommodation stays between Sunday and Thursday and tourism experiences on any day of the week.
The scheme will run from September 7 to December 1, including the school holidays.
Premier Peter Gutwein announced on Thursday registrations for the vouchers would open on the Make Yourself At Home website from 9am on September 7.
“Tasmanians will pay and undertake their travel activity and they can then claim the value of their vouchers for eligible accommodation or an eligible travel experience,” Mr Gutwein said.
“They will be able to do this through the provision of valid receipts for the eligible travel activity and will be reimbursed the value of their voucher into their nominated bank account.”

The vouchers will be available for one adult, two adults or for a family, with vouchers available for up to three children.
One adult can register for one $100 accommodation voucher and one $50 experience voucher.
A couple will be able to access up to two $100 accommodation vouchers which must be used on separate nights and they will be able to access two $50 experience vouchers.
There is a package of up to $550 available for families.
Families of up to two adults can access $150 per night for up to two nights of accommodation.
In a family, two adults and up to three children can access a $50 experience voucher each.
“For example, you might be a family of five from Launceston who chooses to stay three nights on the West Coast,” Mr Gutwein said.
“You could potentially claim up to $300 for your stay in a B&B or hotel in the region and up to $250 for a boat cruise or a ride on the West Coast Wilderness Railway.
“The voucher incentive scheme will encourage intrastate visitation and will encourage Tasmanians to get out and experience their home state, the most unique and beautiful place in the world.”
The vouchers are only available to Tasmanian residents aged 18 and over.
Once vouchers have been redeemed, Tasmanians can apply for additional vouchers if they are available.
