Queensland national parks camping and vehicle access update
Posted on July 14th, 2020
Most Queensland national parks, forests and recreation areas are reopened and operating in line with the Chief Health Officer-approved Industry COVID Safe Plan – QPWS Campgrounds.
With the further easing of COVID-19 restrictions in accordance with the Queensland Government’s roadmap, Queensland’s national parks are now also able to welcome more visitors to national parks and are increasing visitor numbers across Queensland.
As a result, most camping areas are now operating at their normal capacities.
Camping and vehicle access bookings can be made at https://qld.gov.au/camping.
While visitor number capacities for the Cooloola and Bribie Island Recreation Areas have also increased, people planning to visit these areas will still need to secure a COVID-19 Restricted Access Area Authority before travelling, even if they hold a valid vehicle access permit. These Authorities are available at no additional cost with the normal requirements for vehicle and camping permits.
Please note, a small number of camping areas in Far North Queensland are available for booking for local residents only.
Visitors should always check Park Alerts before leaving home for up-to-date information for a specific location.
