Australians may be able to take a holiday to Western Australia as early as January, as Premier Mark McGowan hints at a date for when he will finally lift the borders - but it's likely to herald the start of mandatory mask wearing in the state.

WA has been shut off to most of the country for the majority of the Covid-19 pandemic, earning the nickname 'Fortress Western Australia' due to Mr McGowan's tough border stance.

While the state has remained largely Covid free this year, the premier has been under intense scrutiny for refusing to budge on his plans to reopen until 90 per cent of residents are double vaccinated - which is expected to be hit in January or February.

The state's Vaccine Commander Chris Dawson said on Thursday the borders would reopen 'sometime in January'.
