It's been a long >10mths for most of us, we're slowly reopening up some of the state borders.

International borders are still some way away with a potential bubble with Singapore.

Which of the state/cities will you first visit when international travel is allowed again?

Probably depends on where the cases are, I suppose. Sydney/NSW is about the only place that is unable to bring cases down to zero and keep it there (admittedly, it was seeded from Melbourne). Having said that Melbourne/VIC just had 10 consecutive days of zero new cases.

It will also depends on flights availability and cost. Most airlines have mothballed or retired their largest jets, and it's much easier reinstating flights using smaller planes so destinations such as Perth where it can be reached by a 737/A320 would most likely be much easier to get to compared to places where a long-haul plane is required.

It's a one-way bubble so far. But in any case, the AU government is keeping citizens and long-term residents locked into the country. We can already fly into Singapore - as long as the AU government allows us to leave the country.

Can't see any road map about international travel, first they need to sort out state borders before any decision on international borders can be discussed

And South Australia (Adelaide) is back in lock down - and they called it a "circuit breaker".

The problem is how quickly different states put their borders up as soon as there's an outbreak somewhere. You can't even plan any interstate travel - there could be a cluster here or there tomorrow and you simply won't be able to travel.

This shows how much confidence they have in their contact tracing

I think goldcoast is a good place to visit if you like the beach! Also, many activities to do there and all in all enjoyed myself. :D
