Campgrounds now open

Queensland Premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk announced that from today, Queenslanders can book and enjoy a camping getaway in the state’s national parks, forests and recreation areas, following the Chief Health Officer’s approval of the necessary COVID-19 plan. “While other facilities like picnic tables and barbecues will be accessible, public shower facilities will remain closed and camping numbers will be reduced in some locations to maintain social distancing and keep Queenslanders safe,” Palaszczuk said.
