When is Camping allowed in Queensland?
According to the Queensland Roadmap, camping and holiday travel is allowed from June 12. That is for “in region” maximum 250 km, ensuring you don’t cross into an outback region or cross the state border.
What about travel in the Queensland Outback?
If you live in an Outback region, your region is within 500kms radius from where you live, making sure you don’t leave what is defined as an outback region or cross the state border.
When will the state borders open?
Decisions on reducing interstate travel will occur at a later date, once they can see the impact of lifting restrictions.
What about National Parks?
Some National Parks are open at the moment for day use only, for more information on these and parks that are closed, see: https://parks.des.qld.gov.au/covid-19/ The Roadmap’s FAQ state that with travel to a National Park, you are not allowed to camp in camping grounds overnight or for multiple nights until stage 2.
In the meantime, Queenslanders will start to eat out from this Friday, gatherings will increase to 10 people, and travel from 50 to 150 km, conditions apply.
It is all positive, CAMPS travellers are looking forward to getting on the road again in Queensland. Some are in states where holiday travel and camping is happening – right now.
