Important updates: coronavirus (COVID-19)
Camping and vehicle access in national parks, state forests and recreation areas
Conditions are in place in our national parks, state forests and recreation areas to support Queensland Health COVID-19 directives and keep visitors safe. These include:
- limits on the number of campsites to assist with social distancing
- limits on the number of people who are able to access amenities at any one time
- enhanced cleaning regimes
- requirements for mask wearing in certain circumstances
- keeping contact information for all persons making bookings for contact tracing purposes.
Visitors must not attend a campsite if they have been to a declared COVID-19 Hotspot in the previous 14 days, have been in contact with a known COVID-19 case, or have symptoms related to COVID-19.
We request those who are able to be self-contained do so to reduce the number of people using facilities.
Bookings are essential and can be managed via the following websites:
- Camping areas and vehicle access permits (all locations except Minjerribah and Mulgumpin)—book online via Queensland National Parks Booking Service
- Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island)—book via Minjerribah Camping
- Mulgumpin (Moreton Island)—book via Mulgumpin Camping.
Before visiting a national park
- Always check Park Alerts before leaving home for up-to-date information for a specific location.
- Always check the latest information and follow directions from Queensland Health regarding COVID-19.
- Only visit open sites where there are car spaces available in the car park, follow social distancing measures and adhere to public gathering numbers.
- Please exercise appropriate hygiene with regard to washing hands with soap, use of sanitisers, and leave no trace behind when you depart.
- Note that local closures or restricted access to facilities may apply to some areas for management purposes—check the specific location at park alerts.
- Do not attempt to visit any closed areas, unless authorised, for your own safety and protection, and that of your community.
