CONFUSED about where and when you can travel across state borders?
You're not alone, so Tourism Australia has launched the Australian COVID Travel Portal, which brings together key safety information, travel restrictions and guidelines from across the country to help make travel planning easier.
For the first time, you can access up-to-date travel information in the one location, consolidating content being provided by each state and territory as they reopen in different ways.
The new site includes the up to date status of all borders and associated travel restrictions, relevant information on transport, hotels and accommodation, activities and experiences, as well as health and safety tips.
Tourism Australia managing director Phillipa Harrison believes the new portal will give us the confidence to plan and book an Australian holiday and help us to safely travel the country.
"One of the significant changes that we've seen in consumer behaviour as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak is, unsurprisingly, a heightened awareness around health concerns, hygiene and physical distancing," Ms Harrison said.
"As Australians begin to travel again, it is crucial that travellers feel confident to holiday safely, and that tourism businesses and their communities are ready to welcome them warmly but also safely.
"We want travellers to know it's safe to travel and show how the Australian tourism industry is putting in place the highest standards and stringent COVIDSafe measures to ensure their wellbeing and safety at every point in the journey."
The initial focus is on domestic intrastate and interstate travel, however it is likely to be extended to international visitors as well once international borders reopen.
