Australia travel is increasingly possible within each state but wider travel remains on hold.
Some international and inter-state passenger flights have resumed but most airline routes are halted with planes remaining grounded.
Queensland will keep its borders closed until at least September, Western Australia and South Australia until the end of winter.
Tasmania might stay closed until the end of the year, and even then only with a 14-day quarantine for visitors.
Australia Travel is currently directed by the federal government that urges states and territories to reopen only when safe to do so.

They will also limit movement around aircraft cabins. But forget about having an empty seat between each passenger. Airlines say it is impractical and unnecessary.
