Further restrictions to ease on June 1

Weddin residents who are suffering itchy feet can rejoice with the NSW Government announcing this week a change to travel restrictions within the state.

On Tuesday Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Deputy Premier John Barilaro said that from June 1 NSW residents will be able to visit anywhere in regional NSW for recreation and holiday purposes.

Ms Berejiklian is even encouraging people from across the border to travel to NSW for their holidays.

"Please take extra care in planning ahead, booking online, and making sure you keep away from large crowds, and protect your friends and your family as you are holidaying," Ms Berejiklian said. "We want people to enjoy themselves, to feel free, but nothing we do is the same during a pandemic.

"You need to book ahead, think about opportunities to enjoy the environment in a different way, but please make sure you're safe."

The new easing of restrictions will come into effect just in time for the June long weekend.
