Commiserations. I don't think there are many people unaffected by this though.

I was supposed to drive to Darwin with my son, we planned returning via Alice Springs and Uluru in May but the State border closures put the kibosh on that. Prior to that I was expecting an overseas visitor to arrive for a month in March but the closing of international borders stopped that happening.

Once the school holidays are over in October I hope I can get away for a few weeks in NSW though it is rumoured that the SA and NT borders might open next month but that remains to be seen.

It is very trying times for all prospective travellers, especially as the borders and travel restriction could be reimposed with little notice. Definitely need to get out and about however.

Well we have booked a couple of nights at the feathers hotel in Woodstock and plan to visit Blenheim palace, but again Covid looks like putting a stop to it...

Believe it or not, our family in Georgia was booked at 2019 price. Might still be off for in US............

It might then be cancelled but then the probability is the 2020 prices will be hiked.
