Will I finally see my family? Can this be true?

I think it will depend on which state or territory your family is in. We're all hoping that we can reach the magic 80% and for the situations in Victoria and NSW to resolve.

I don't have a lot of faith in Smuggo though.

Nope, not in WA. McGowan is a clown. They are still shut and will be until next year, probably mid year at least. We have been trying to go home for ages, but I refuse to pay/do 2 weeks mandatory hotel quarantine x 4 of us (fully vaccinated). It’s so annoying. Our friends/family are not bothered about overseas travel which shocked me a bit.

Also saw some suggested flight prices (if you can get a flight and government exemption) one way to London at Xmas 2000 AUD 😮. Am sure the airlines will hike up the prices even more than they do for “normal Xmas flights” - bastards and Qantas are only going to take fully vaccinated passengers. Wondered what they will do about kids????

Haven’t been home for 2 years😲

I wouldn’t hold my breath. Our PM is known for making blanket statements that he can’t fulfill. He isn’t driving that bus. The states health ministers are in control of that one.

Yeah probably not WA. I reckon we’d cost up how much it would cost to stay in NSW for a couple of weeks hol if it was without quarantine.

We’re psyching ourselves for DH’s family to fly from WA next June & finally meet DS who will be 18 months at that point.
