Updated September 23rd 2020
As you are no doubt aware the situation in the states and communities across Australia is constantly changing.
Our next planting contracts are in QLD which until recently has imposed rather strict border restrictions.
However, an announcement on the 23rd of September is suggesting that after October 1st anyone that ‘lives’ in the extended NSW border zone will be able to travel anywhere in QLD with a border pass.
What does this mean for travellers and seasonal workers?
It is not yet clear how long one needs to be ‘living’ in a NSW border town to actually qualify for QLD work/travel so we suggest anyone who wants to plant trees this summer stay in the border towns as long as you can or until the regulations are more comprehensible.
We still ask everyone working with us at the moment or potentially joining one of our crews to:
- Adhere to the social distancing guidelines set out by the Australian government.
- support your immune system
- follow hygiene guidelines
- if you can, vacate urban areas (hotspots) and get as close to the region/state you will be working in as soon as possible.
We are regularly in contact with our clients, updating policy and staying informed of all current changes to federal regulation and will update this page when applicable.
A detailed policy will be emailed to all successful applicants well in advance of contract commencement.
Please check back for updates.
