SEAROAD Ferries is giving away $1 million worth of foot passenger tickets to encourage visitors to the Mornington and Bellarine peninsulas.
Online registrations for the tickets to the ferry connecting Sorrento and Queenscliff start on Wednesday (18 November) and close 5pm Sunday 22 November.
The free tickets can be used between 23 November and 31 July next year.
Searoad CEO Matt McDonald said the 38,384 tickets would enable the winning passengers to “feel a world away from the challenges this year has brought”.
He said the giveaway was “motivated by a desire to bring visitors back to the region and help drive the local economy”.
“We are a family owned business and we know how hard it has been for Victorians during lockdown,” Mr McDonald said.
“In particular, we’ve seen the hardship faced by many local businesses who rely on tourism so wanted to do our bit and encourage as many visitors as possible to help the community spring back from an incredibly difficult time.”
The giveaway is limited to one free ticket a person. Register at freeferrytickets.com.au
