Travel between NSW and Queensland is back on the cards after Anastasia Palaszczuk announced the reopening of the border as soon as the NSW lockdown comes to an end.
“My decision today will give vaccinated NSW residents plenty of time to join family and friends in Queensland for the Christmas holiday period,” says the Queensland Premier.
NSW’s lockdown is expected to end on October 11, when 70% of the adult population is double dosed.
But Ms Palaszczuk acknowledges there is another big factor contributing to her decision.
“I met a really nice Sydney guy called Dave on Tinder,” she says. “We matched last night and he wants to meet me in Brisbane ASAP.”
“I think he’s from the Canterbury Bankstown LGA, but whatever, I’m sure it’s fine.”
The Labor leader says the she’s looking forward to showing Dave the sites of Brisbane.
“We’ve talked about going for a cruise on the Brisbane Rover, but if I’m being totally honest, we might end up just chilling and watching Netflix at my place,” she says.
And Ms Palaszczuk hasn’t ruled out the prospect of closing the borders again quickly if required.
“I wont let this one get away (hahah)” she says.
