Sky news are reporting live from Albury in new south Wales,
saying that travel to Australia may not be possible till Christmas 2021 after the recent out breaks of Covid 19 in Melbourne.
Thats a shame,just hopeful that the Test match's will still go ahead over Christmas/New year period 2021/2022.

Oh yes let’s really hope the test match goes ahead. How about those with family in Australia?

That's me done then with DC and DGC down there! Will I ever see them again? I would have never thought something like this could happen, not being able to visit, and at my age perhaps for the last time! sad

Really worrying that we cannot visit friends and family in Australia for the foreseeable future.

hmmhmm
Different priorities Infoman - you can always watch your “behind closed doors” cricket matches on TV- what about those who may be facing not seeing their families for another two years? sad

We have extended family there and a new baby. It been very challenging for my SiL, as the new grandmother.
I hope travel restrictions ease before 2021/2...

Why don’t your children reply to messages immediately?
Hopefully DD will be up to date with the news over there.

No-one can put a date on it, so forget any dates you have heard. There is no date, it's unpredictable. The truth is no-one knows when travel to Australia will open up again because no-one knows the course of this virus.
