With Christmas quickly approaching, we could say that the jolly spirit is in the air—even more so now that Queenslander is officially opening its borders to Victoria and greater Sydney as of 1 December, meaning we can all travel to see our loved ones for the holiday season.
In two separate press conferences this week, Queensland Premier Anastasia Palaszczuk announced that due to the tremendous efforts of Aussies nationwide, the border restrictions for entering Queensland have now been lifted, meaning that we can now head for Victoria and all of NSW, and return home without having to quarantine.
This means that Queenslanders can now travel almost anywhere in Australia, except for Adelaide, which is still considered a hot spot. Of the cluster there, Palaszczuk said she is still concerned, but will make further announcements about travel restrictions to South Australia by the end of the month.
Before you start packing the suitcase or inviting the relatives up for that Christmas lunch, just make sure you are checking the most up to date guidelines on the relevant state websites, and filling out a border declaration form for wherever you’re travelling to, as well as for your return trip to Queensland.
In the meantime, make the most of Black Friday and book some cheap trips here.
