This Dalby business is ready to help you travel
THOSE who’ve got the travel bug in the Western Downs will finally be able to scratch that itch, after Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk eased travel restrictions throughout the state.
For those who are looking to capitalise on the flights currently circulating or who are intrigued to see the rest of their state, the team at Helloworld Travel Dalby is ready to help.
“We are very thankful to have amazing clients in the local community,” Senior Travel Consultant Sharon Lucht said.
“With restrictions now easing in Queensland, we have been putting together many trips from a weekend getaway at the wineries in Stanthorpe to a family holiday on the coast and escapes to the Whitsunday Islands.
“We are getting a lot of inquiries for travel to Tasmania, Western Australia including the beautiful Kimberley Region, train travel such as The Ghan and Indian Pacific, cruising and international travel is still very popular with a lot of inquiry for Britain and Ireland and around when borders will open to international travel.”
Acknowledging the past few years had been trying for the area, Ms Lucht was excited for Australians to explore their area and help their economy get back up and running.
“As Australians we have a natural disposition to explore,” she said.
“For many years international travel has been immensely popular as it’s become more and more affordable.
“Local travel has always been popular, however the droughts, bushfires and even more recently COVID-19 restrictions have been an eye opener for many to take the opportunity to really explore our own beautiful backyard and support the local economy.”
Despite stage two restrictions being brought forward early, Ms Palaszczuk has remained firm on reopening the borders which have been closed off to recreational travel since March 25.
“Let me make it very clear, the border will remain closed for the month of June,” Ms Palaszczuk said.
“The winter months in the southern states are most popular for travel in beautiful sunny Queensland. While our borders are closed, we are relying on Queenslanders to support the tourism industry.”
Despite many workplaces shutting their doors over the past 10 weeks, the Helloworld Travel Dalby team has continued to work hard behind closed doors, ensuring all clients returned home safely.
“The early days of COVID-19 were spent working at all hours to ensure any travellers we had overseas were looked after and had safe passage home while also navigating the many rules.
“We are now open 9am-2pm Monday to Friday and appreciate appointments to ensure we can continue to abide by the social distancing regulations.”
