Mahurangi Matters, 14 October 2020 – You Say Online

As of October 16, a one-way travel bubble will open between New Zealand and Australia, allowing New Zealanders to travel to either New South Wales or the Northern Territory without having to quarantine upon arrival in Australia. We asked our Facebook followers if they think the one-way travel bubble should open between New Zealand and parts of Australia. Here are some of the responses:

Dion Wilcox It’s all good. It’s only open for Kiwis to travel to certain parts of Oz. If you’re going for a holiday though it will be expensive, and a long time away from home – with two weeks managed isolation when you get back.

Aaron Dunnett No thanks. The way things are there I would rather keep the borders closed until next year at least. For those that have family there, well, there’s modern communications to keep in touch. Think of your loved ones’ lives before jetting off, and why would you want to go when we have our own beautiful country to spend money in.

Anna Bakker I’m not too sure about it, but we could give it a try.
