Where to spend summer vacation in each state of Australia amid COVID-19 crisis

Australia’s state borders are slowly starting to open again after months of closures due to the COVID-19 crisis.

But each state has been crippled by the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns, and governments are refusing to offer any certainty about whether borders will stay open if cases begin to soar once more.

Instead, state bodies are encouraging residents to support their own economy by travelling locally – and with a landscape like Australia’s, the options are endless.

While Victoria remains in lockdown and restrictions are still in place for intrastate travel, all other destinations are encouraging locals to explore their own backyards.

From The Whitsundays to Broome and city staycations, Daily Mail Australia takes a look at the most popular destinations to travel within each state.

WV Travel Team: Saying goodbye to summer at Deep Creek’s Wisp All Season Resort | Travel

SWANTON, Md. — When I boarded the pontoon boat at Deep Creek Lake State Park, I expected a relaxing ride along the shores of Maryland’s largest inland body of water. While I got what I expected, the engrossing narrative of skipper Bob Salvucci added much to the experience.

The south includes a look at the house Einstein vacationed in back in 1946, the beautiful shoreline with some incredible mega-mansions and the sail boat section of the lake, home of the Turkey Neck Yacht Club.”

Our party of seven picked south, and off we went as Salvucci began telling us a bit of local history with amazing panache and verve.

“This area was once the summer
