Canberrans will be able to visit NSW for a holiday from 1 June 2020.
Travel is permitted anywhere in NSW.
We ask that Canberrans carefully consider the need to travel outside of the Canberra region, as someone bringing the virus into the Territory from interstate remains one of the biggest risks to the re-emergence of COVID-19 in the ACT. The same applies to NSW residents visiting the ACT.
While we want Canberrans to enjoy a well-earned break, we must remember that it is everyone’s responsibility to adhere to physical distancing measures.
If you choose to use travel, it is your responsibility to maintain the physical distancing measures (1.5 metres between yourself and others), and practice good hygiene.
You should use your judgement and leave a site if it is too crowded and the distancing requirements cannot be complied with.
You should not travel if you are unwell.
To avoid disappointment, travellers should call ahead to confirm if accommodation and attractions are open.
Travellers planning to visit national parks should check NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service for further information.
Travellers must practice good hygiene and physical distancing, particularly in shared facilities.
The Canberra and Region Visitors Centre is working towards physically reopening on 1 June. It is currently providing live chat and phone advice.
