Reopening Queensland National Parks

Reopening Queensland National Parks

In line with the QLD Government’s Roadmap to easing restrictions

Posted on 18.05.2020

As part of the Queensland Government’s ongoing response to COVID-19, national parks, state forests and recreation areas will progressively reopen to visitors, in line with the Queensland Government’s Roadmap to easing restrictions.

From 11.59pm 15 May, all national parks and forest day use areas and walking tracks reopened, except for some popular rock pool destinations.

Recreation Areas including K’gari (Fraser Island), Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island) and Mulgumpin (Moreton Island) are now open for day use visitors (camping and overnight stays are not yet allowed under Stage 1 restrictions). Bribie Island and Cooloola recreation areas remain closed for the time being for community safety, but we are working on providing safe access soon.

Some closures still remain in place, including all camping areas, the Bribie Island and Cooloola recreation areas as well as some popular rock pool destinations. These areas are scheduled to reopen from 11:59 pm 12 June 2020 following evaluation of the success of the Stage 1 easing of restrictions.

Before planning an activity please check the full and current list of closures on Park Alerts at https://parks.des.qld.gov.au/park-alerts/

Please follow all roadside and on-site regulatory signage and observe all notices, social distancing measures, maximum allowable numbers and all other health directions.

Please visit the Department of Environment and Science website for more details.
