While we will do our best to keep you informed and assist you, it is ultimately your responsibility to be aware of how they may impact your journey.
Guests are responsible for meeting the current WA and NT State Government interstate conditions of entry and quarantine. These conditions can change at any time and we strongly recommend that guests check regularly and 15 days prior to departure date. Here are the current conditions: WA’s Controlled Interstate Border Arrangement This currently includes the need for ALL interstate visitors to complete a G2G PASS declaration.
