Travelling in Australia 2020

Everything you 'need to know' and where to go post the Covid19 lockdown.

Your breakaway holiday guide - post Coronavirus

With lock-down restrictions set to be relaxed over the coming weeks, many of us will be looking to get out of the house and have a breakaway holiday.

Which state you live in will dictate when you can have your breakaway holiday and where you can, with most initial trips likely to be restricted to destinations within your home state. Regardless of where you go, social distancing will still be encouraged, so make sure you pack your Scrubba wash bag to avoid needing to use public washing machines or common facilities.

To help you plan your lock-down breakaway holiday we have compiled the latest guidance on travel restrictions and a list of our top ten destinations for each state.
