Queensland’s border will reopen to Victoria on 1 December, while Tasmania’s will do the same on 27 November.

Queensland and Tasmania have announced they will both reopen their borders to Victoria in the coming days.
The border restrictions in Queensland will relax on 1 December, while Tasmania will allow Victorians in from Friday.
Queensland’s announcement came a day after Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk revealed travel from Greater Sydney will also be permitted from 1 December.
“During the forthcoming Christmas school holidays, I think we will see now, with the borders opened to New South Wales and Victoria, we will see the Gold Coast and places like Cairns and the Whitsundays now doing a roaring trade,” she told ABC News Breakfast on Wednesday morning.
“That is great for Queensland businesses, it’s great for Queensland tourism, it’s great for our theme parks.
“I encourage people, there’s no better place to spend your Christmas holidays than Queensland.”
Victoria has now gone 26 days without recording a coronavirus case.
Premier Daniel Andrews said he would encourage people to stay in Victoria over the summer to support local businesses.
“There’s lots of great ways to stay at home this Christmas and this summer and support Victorian businesses.
“But look, this is a triumph for the people of Victoria. We had a clear strategy. Everyone made sacrifices. We stayed the course and now we have no active cases, no new cases.”
Queensland’s Chief Health Officer Jeannette Young said authorities were carefully watching the recent outbreak in South Australia and would soon make a decision on that border. 
“South Australia – we’re still waiting to see how their outbreak unfolds,” she told reporters. 
“It’s been really good so far. They’ve had only small numbers. We just have to see what happens in that first incubation period.”
Tasmania relaxing border restrictions
Tasmanias border will reopen to Victorians on Friday for the first time in more than eight months.
After previously flagging a 27 November reopening, the island state’s premier confirmed mandatory quarantine requirements for Victorian arrivals would end from 12:01am.
“I want to commend the efforts of Victorians for getting on top of COVID-19,” Peter Gutwein said in a statement on Wednesday.
“We look forward to welcoming Victorians back to Tasmania. This will be welcomed by so many who have been waiting months to reunite with loved ones.”
Victorian travellers will be required to undergo health screening when they arrive in Tasmania, in line with protocols for all visitors.
Tasmania is open to all states and territories bar SA.
Mr Gutwein said an update about SA restrictions would be provided on Thursday.
