The countdown is on to pretty much the best travel promotion happening this year (or possibly ever!).
On October 15th, the new Great State Voucher campaign is kicking off, which means the ol’ government is chipping in between $50 and $100 towards your hotel bill, at a wide range of amazing South Australian destinations.
For a very limited time save $100 off Adelaide city stays and $50 off regional and suburban stays in our Great State.
Get your Great State Voucher from 9am on 15 October to 11:59pm on 31 October 2020 unless they run out prior.
One of the amazing hotels involved in this campaign is the Ibis Hotel on Grenfell Street. If you use a Great State Voucher and stay there, it will only cost you $1! That’s what happens when you get an affordable hotel and take a casual hundred off the bill. Spending the night in the city has never been so accessible! Best of all, if you’re spending basically nothing on accommodation, you can splash out on a great meal, or experience in the city instead, and still come in for under $100. Date night anyone?
The Ibis isn’t the only great hotel within reach, with the brand new Crowne Plaza hotel, which is located on Frome Street in Adelaide, also involved in the promotion. The hotel officially opens on November 2nd, and you could be among the first to stay there for only $55 (once you’ve used the voucher) if you jump on this incredible deal. Just wait til you see the inside – it’s spectacular (see the pics here).
There’s also a raft of other fantastic hotels included in the campaign, like the beautiful Mayfair Hotel, the new Oval Hotel, and SkyCity’s new EOS Hotel which is also opening later this year.
To get your voucher, and see the full list of hotels involved, follow these three steps:
- From 9am on 15 October, the link to register will be available here. You cannot pre-register.
- Choose from the participating accommodation providers.
- Book your stay directly with your chosen provider. You must provide your unique Voucher number on booking.
The vouchers are valid for travel from 15 October to 11 December 2020.
Best of all, if you’re saving yourself a cool $100 on a night in the city, you can use that money to support a local business by shopping, eating out, having some cocktails, or enjoying a pamper session at your favourite day spa.
Here’s some of our suggestions on how to use your $100:
Hit up the Adelaide Central Market. Grab a great brunch, some fresh produce for your week’s meals, and a knick knack or too.
Face your fear of heights and try the Adelaide Oval Roof Climb (trust us, it’s amazing!)
Head to the new bar and restaurant at the Oval Hotel, and experience the luxurious space, epic wine list, and in-house puppy!

Hit up one of the many inner city cellar doors, breweries or distilleries and sample their wares, while stocking up your cellar.
Jump on a Handlebar pedal pub tour around the streets of Adelaide. These 2 hour tours of the Adelaide CBD are on their 16 passenger pedaling pub.
