Tasmanians will receive vouchers over spring to encourage them to travel across the state to support hospitality and tourism-based businesses.
Premier Peter Gutwein announced the $7.5 million Make Yourself At Home package on Tuesday, after it was revealed the state's borders would remain closed until December 1.
Under the package, Tasmanians who travel outside of their municipality to stay midweek in commercial accommodation will receive up to $100 towards the cost of a room.

Those who book a tourism experience on any day of the week will receive a subsidy of up to $50.
"The voucher system is expected to support up to 25,000 bed nights or 50,000 tourism experiences each month," he said.
Details on the scheme will be released later in the month.
Tourism Industry Council Tasmania chief executive Luke Martin said Tasmanians had supported tourism-based businesses well over winter.
"As an industry we are enormously appreciative of the efforts of Tasmanians to support our operators and our workforce," he said.
"But there are many businesses and destinations across the state who have not benefited as much as they would like and a voucher system targeted towards attractions and tour operators will be very welcome throughout spring."
Mr Gutwein also announced a campaign would soon be launched to allow Tasmanians to register interest in being part of the labour pool for seasonal agricultural harvesting.
He said an assessment of the industry had showed there would be 5000 jobs available for harvest workers from December to March.
"With our border restrictions in place, and many Tasmanians still looking for work or for more hours, there is a significant opportunity for Tasmanians to undertake this harvest work this year.
"Our fruit must be picked, our vegetables harvested and our wine grapes crushed.
"Before we consider essential traveller exemptions for temporary visa holders over the growing period, we need to offer this opportunity to Tasmanians first."
