    Interstate travellers are being encouraged to 'Walk On A Dream' in Western Australia with special Qantas return airfares launching today.


    Qantas' 'Dream of WA' flight sale offers holidaymakers the chance to fly to Perth from $175, from all Australian capital cities, when purchased with a return ticket.


    The special fares are available from 5am AWST today, Wednesday 7 September, until Thursday 15 September (unless sold out prior), for travel between October 2022 to June 2023 (block out dates apply).


    The incentive heralds WA's new tourism brand 'Walking On A Dream' and is supported by the McGowan Government's $195 million Reconnect WA package, through Tourism WA.


    'Walking On A Dream' invites travellers to visit WA to explore the attributes that make our State a wondrous, dreamlike place - including its jaw-dropping landscapes and one-of-a-kind experiences that inspire a sense of unparalleled freedom.


    The new tourism brand will lift the profile of WA as a unique holiday destination within a highly competitive global travel marketplace, to turbocharge interstate and international visitation, boost the WA economy and create quality jobs across tourism, hospitality and related sectors.


    Qantas will promote the special discounted airfares through digital channels and social media using creative imagery from Tourism WA's new 'Walking On A Dream' tourism brand. Sale fares can also be booked through travel agents.
