WA, get excited! 

A relaxation of WA coronavirus restrictions means that WA residents will be able to jump in their car with regional travel within Western Australia back on the menu.

Where Can You Travel from Friday 29 May?

Regional boundaries will be lifted from Friday 29 May with the exception for Australian Government biosecurity zones, including the Kimberley regions, parts of the Shire of East Pilbara and Shire of Nagaanyatjarraku. Restrictions on entering remote Aboriginal communities remain in place. 

See here for more information from the Western Australian government. 


Where Can You Travel as of Monday 18 May?

For those based in Perth and experiencing cabin fever, as of Monday 18 May, travel will be allowed between Perth, Peel, Wheatbelt, South West such as the Margaret River region and Great Southern.



What Else Has Changed with Phase 2 of Restrictions?

  • Cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, hotels and wineries are allowed to open for meal service for up to 20 people. 
  • Indoor and outdoor gatherings of up to 20 people
  • Non-contact community sport of up to 20 people
  • Outdoor or indoor fitness classes with minimal shared equipment of up to 20 people.


Plan Your Trip.
It is highly recommended that you do your research and plan your trip if you are intending to travel. Not all local businesses will be open with some remaining closed due to the ongoing restrictions for indoor gatherings.
