 I can understand they want to relieve the pressure on remote and elderly communities, but for campers they are mostly self sufficient in the wide open. I have accom booked for Shark bay over easter and I would expect that to get chopped shortly, which I am fine with but what the hell is everyone going to do over easter!

Have a staycation

Hang out at home, drink the value of your accommodation and fuel bill budgeted for going away. Do those odd jobs around the house that You've been avoiding for ages . I'm going to be putting the finishing touches on my boat project and then I'm hitting the islands off the coast for a bit of RnR . 


 My wife understands why I clean my rods n reels in the shower....

 Good.  I hope many many

 Good.  I hope many many others follow suit.  (not that I wish people to have bad holiday @jrod1)

I keep commenting on these threads and I'm sure some will think Im off my tree but quite simply:

if you have plans to travel over easter....DONT DO IT !!!Cancel them now.  it will be way more frustrating for the relatives of the people that die in the coming months if you dont. 


this is not a ban that people should be thinking "how do I get around this" "maybe I could say I need to travel for bla blah blah"  "how can I get to my holiday destination and say it's essential travel"

Forget the technicalities do the right think stay home.
