Victorians will be handed 80,000 vouchers to help regional hospitality and tourism businesses hit hard by the coronavirus lockdown.
Acting Premier James Merlino announced a $32.2 million package on Sunday to support the tourism industry, including $16 million for regional tourism vouchers.
A further $11.8 million will be spent on $4500 payments to businesses, resulting in all Victorian tourism operators receiving a total of $7000 in support during the snap lockdown.
The government has also implemented a $4.4 million package for ski and mountain operators.
“Today we are announcing a $32.2 million package, made up of $16 million to provide a further round of the very popular regional tourism vouchers,” Mr Merlino said.
