South Australia looms as the last domino to fall in the return to full interstate travel as Western Australia prepares to open its doors.
WA will reopen its borders to NSW and Victoria from December 8, Premier Mark McGowan has confirmed.
Travellers from those states will no longer be required to quarantine for 14 days, having endured almost nine months of restrictions.
It will leave SA as the lone outpost as states and territories edge closer to tearing down all borders in time for Christmas.

There are 33 cases linked to a worrying COVID-19 cluster in Adelaide, although only 11 of those are still considered active infections.
WA has banned entry to anyone from SA, while Victoria, Queensland and Tasmania are restricting travel from Adelaide hotspot areas.
Mr McGowan on Tuesday said the WA-SA border controls will be reviewed next week and won’t change until at least December 11.
