Melbourne Lockdown

  • I live in Melbourne but I am currently on Holidays, am I required to return home?

    From 11.59pm on Wednesday 8 July 2021, if you normally live in the Melbourne Metropolitan area or Mitchell Shire but are on holiday elsewhere, you can continue that holiday. However, if you live in metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchel Shire you must not extend your holiday beyond the original booking date.

    From 11.59pm on Wednesday 8 July 2021, if you live in the Melbourne Metropolitan area or Mitchell Shire you are required to stay at home except for the four reasons (shopping for food or essential items, care or compassionate reasons, exercise or outdoor recreation, work or study if you can’t do it from home)and will not be permitted to leave home for the purposes of a holiday.

  • What if I have booked a holiday, can I still go?

    No. The return to Stage 3 Stay at Home restrictions means people in metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire will have to cancel travel bookings, unless they are included in the four reasons that you can leave home.
