NSW Government Announces Holiday Travel Restrictions To Be Lifted From June 1

May 20, 2020

The NSW Government today announced plans for travel restrictions to be lifted from Monday 1 June 2020.

The changes will allow NSW residents and interstate visitors to travel around the state for recreational purposes without restriction.

The announcement will be welcomed by tourism operators across the state, many of whom have struggled since the restrictions were announced earlier this year.

While the lifting of restrictions is great news for regional NSW, Premier Gladys Berejiklian has asked people to be responisible when they’re travelling.

“I must stress to everyone that, while we want people to enjoy a well-earned holiday, we must do this responsibly and continue to abide by physical distancing measures, as the last thing we want is further outbreaks that will force us to reintroduce restrictions,” said Berejiklian.

Holidaymaking venues are encouraged to review their booking policies to allow travellers to easily cancel their trip if they have any symptoms.
