UPDATE: The Border region zone has been expanded to include popular holiday destinations in the North-East including Bright, Mount Beauty and Tawonga.
Also, Benalla has been added in the latest NSW Public Health Amendment released overnight.
Boree Creek in southern NSW to Myrrhee in North-East Victoria is a distance of more than 200 kilometres.
EARLIER: Border region residents have been given the green light to freely travel either side of the Murray River.
The amended NSW Public Health Order was officially gazetted late on Wednesday and is effective from midnight.
It means the four reasons previously required to cross between Albury-Wodonga and other river communities on the Victoria-NSW border have been scrapped.
They were to obtain necessary goods or services; for care or other compassionate reasons; to attend work or education or to permanently move home into NSW.
But on Wednesday, member for Albury Justin Clancy confirmed the changes meaning Wodonga and other Victorian-based border region residents can travel into Albury to attend pubs, clubs, restaurants and cinemas and reunite with families and friends after the border closure was put in place in early July.
The changes are also a massive roadblock removed for community support starting summer seasons including Cricket Albury-Wodonga, tennis, swimming and water polo competitions.
Checkpoint personnel in Albury were being briefed on the changes on Wednesday evening.
Movement into NSW is permitted with a valid border crossing permit.
The changes coincide with the Victorian government's decision to ease restrictions in regional Victoria, also effective from midnight.
"It means people can get back to business and reunite with families and friends.
"I am very pleased to see the NSW government respond in a timely manner."
Albury mayor Kevin Mack said: "Its a great outcome for our border communities and I am glad that the government has responded to our concerns."
