Awesome. Fingers crossed that this holds!
That is really great. I am wary of booking flights and accommodation and then having cases appear from hotel quarantine and then borders close again. Or is all that behind us?
*The kicker being if we are talking about going to NZ to ski it is likely that all one's eggs would be in that basket as Oz would likely be booked out so switching may not be an option. I don't want to miss another season skiing.

Why not both? That’s my plan anyway :)

I'm saving leave up for a longer trip in January/February next year. Also the kids school holiday dates don't work ideally for the southern hemisphere season - so I'll be taking them out of school and I will limit that to one week.
I'm saving leave up for a very hopeful Canada (back up would be Japan) trip in January/February 22.

I'd just be happy to see my nan...
That kind of puts things in perspective.
Those of us who have all our family local have been extremely lucky through all this. I can only imagine the discomfort having loved ones overseas would be.

For New Zealander’s in Australia wanting to visit or return to Nz the wait time for a quarantine spot is now 3 months so hopefully this gets going quicker than March

Me too re Canada!

I’m working on 5 days skiing Enzed, saving a month of leave for Feb 2022.

Oz will be weekends and occasional flex.

Surely they could allow home quarantine for Aussies now!

I thought the idea of the trans Tasman bubble was no quarantine? talk on the news last night of separate areas in the airport and air crew only doing bubble flights.

Yes.
But not until around about March.

I believe that's the current lead time for quarantine, say if a bubble does not eventuate. Via MIQ:

I really hope this happens because such flights are essential for travelers. I prefer ground transportation because road travel is a better option for me and less traumatic. With all that said, it's important to keep in mind that I usually go on such trips with my family. Family trips are more interesting for me because I like to feel the happiness of my loved ones beside me. That is why I choose such trips that have opportunities for family vacations. If we talk about such opportunities, it is worth mentioning db fahrplan.

I'm booked for a September ski trip. Airfares the only thing not fully refundable. Took the punt on quarantine free travel by then. Little bit nervous however, still alluding to the possibility of reverting back to a quarantine model if covid kicks off again in Oz. But with Vax rates broadly similar, I'm struggling to see a differential risk profile between Oz and NZ.
