Update on cross-border travel

posted in: Blog 0

Western Australia, South Australia, Northern Territory, Queensland and Tasmania have border restrictions in place.

There are currently no restrictions in place for travel between Victoria, NSW and the ACT.

Despite these restrictions, all freight movements are continuing. It’s business as usual.

However we ask that you keep abreast of information provided by State, Territory and Federal Government agencies.
