NSW residents will have the ability to head into the state’s areas for vacations in under a fortnight under a relaxation of COVID-19 travel limitations.
Recreational regional travel within the state will be allowed again from June 1.
Under current NSW public health orders, regional travel for vacations is banned.
Queensland has indicated that border closures with southern states could stay until at least September as a result of coronavirus pandemic, prompting grief from tourism groups.
Meanwhile, NSW public schools will go back to the classroom full time on Monday, two months after constraints forced around 800,000 children to study remotely.
Some Catholic and independent schools will also return full-time on Monday, while some are working towards a June 1 return.
