As summer holiday season inches closer, we have been waiting with bated breath for borders to reopen to expand the many wonderful possibilities of or our Aussie escapes.
With COVID-19 community transmission in NSW dwindling across September—even down to zero new locally acquired cases this week—borders restrictions are starting to ease.
Last week South Australia opened up their borders and boozy trips to the Barossa were back on the cards.
And this morning, Queensland has revealed they will open their border to NSW on Sunday 1 November, provided there is no community transmission for the next 28 days.
If you’ve been holding out for a trip to Hamilton Island, the Sunshine Coast, or, for real tropical vibes, Cairns, Port Douglas, and the like, it’s looking likely that you will be able to make that trip very soon.
For now, check out all the best local escapes in NSW right here.
