We Say/You Say: trans-Tasman bubble

Hi Canterbury!

After more than a year of closed borders, Australians and New Zealanders will soon be able to jet-hop between countries after the government announced that the trans-Tasman travel bubble will be operational from April 19.

With quarantine-free travel now possible, are you more likely to head across the Tasman or travel domestically?

Fronting Australian media yesterday, Jacinda Ardern not only spoke of the excitement of families being able to be reunited, but also pitched New Zealand tourist activities to Australian viewers.

"If there is a hot spot in one of the states of Australia we may just act in the same way that another state would ... Just prepare that there may be disruptions, but what better place in the world to be stuck. Am I right?," she said.

The trans-Tasman bubble will operate on a three tier basis: Continue, Pause and Suspend. If there are a few cases in Australia linked to the border, quarantine-free travel will continue. Travel may be paused for 72 hours if there are rogue community cases and in the instance of a state or nationwide lockdown, travel will be suspended.

Move over Burt.

Another team of Kiwi adrenaline junkies will attempt to crack a record-breaking 320kmh this week, on a motorbike built in a Christchurch shed.

Between Friday and Sunday, 56-year-old UK ex-pat Phil Garrett will try to set a New Zealand motorcycle land speed record, tearing down a closed McCrorys Rd in Pendarves, near Ashburton.

Alongside fellow drivers Rob Small and Des Bull, he will tackle the feat on a 46-year-old motorbike, one almost entirely rebuilt in his Burwood garage by hundreds of people.

What do you think of their chances?

Christchurch artist and adventurer Emma Timmis is running around Hagley Park for 24 hours straight to raise much needed funds for Youthline. She began at 10am on Friday.

"After seeing Youthline on the news recently I felt I had to do something. Youthline has been inundated with calls from struggling young people since lockdown last year. Mental health is so important and shouldn’t be overlooked," Emma says.

"After struggling with my own mental health in the last few years I know how hard it is to reach out for help. Having an organisation that you can call or contact online is hugely important for young people today."
