Important updates: coronavirus (COVID-19)

In line with updated Queensland Health COVID-19 directives, campers are no longer required to check-in using the Check-In Qld app.

Camping and vehicle access in national parks, state forests and recreation areas

Please ensure you are aware of the current Queensland Health traffic light advice and how it can help you make informed decisions to enhance your personal safety.

Please refer to the Queensland Health website for further information regarding isolating if you have COVID-19, are a close contact or have COVID-19 symptoms.

We request those who are able to be self-contained with their own equipment, do so to reduce the number of people using facilities. Social distancing and good hand hygiene should be observed.

Bookings are essential and can be managed via the following websites:

Before visiting a national park

  • Always check Park Alerts before leaving home for up-to-date information for a specific location.
  • Check the latest information and follow directions from Queensland Health regarding COVID-19. If camping, always follow directions from any on-site signage.
  • Please remember to bring your own soap and sanitiser and exercise appropriate hygiene with regard to washing hands 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.
