South Australia keen for travel bubble with New Zealand

Some Australian states are angry about arriving New Zealand travellers, but other states are rolling out the red carpet.

South Australia has joined New South Wales and the Northern Territory in the one-way travel bubble.

It means New Zealanders can travel to Adelaide via Sydney, but will still need to quarantine when they return to New Zealand, at their own cost.

South Australia Tourism Commission local manager Stacey Kerr told Mike Hosking the state is in a good position to allow travel with New Zealand.

"Like New Zealand, South Australia went hard and early.

"It has now gone several months without community transmission in the state."

Kerr says the state wants to be in the bubble, when New Zealand agrees to reciprocate the bubble arrangement.

More than 32,000 Australians from around the world have applied to be allowed back home by Christmas.

At this stage, Victoria and Western Australia are still asking New Zealanders to keep out.
