as coronavirus restrictions are eased
Have your say
QUEENSLANDERS will be able to dust off
their tents or hook up the caravan or camper trailer as camping grounds
beside state-owned dams re-open.
Natural Resources Minister Dr Anthony Lynham said re-opening camping
grounds beside dams was part of the Stage 2 COVID-19 roadmap to easing
"Queenslanders can now travel to and camp at a range of state-owned dams,
lakes and weirs such as far north Queensland's Tinaroo Dam or Lake
Moogerah in the south-east," Dr Lynham said.
"The government wants to support tourism through Queensland's recovery
plan and driving and camping holidays are a terrific way to support
"My family and I have always been keen campers.
"I encourage Queenslanders to book a spot, pack up the car and get out and
enjoy Queensland's outdoor areas.
"Campers should call ahead and check to see if and when these camping
grounds are open and have availability, as some forare still completing
works started during the shutdown.
"Of course, it is important however that everyone sticks to the rules so
we can remain safe."
He said this included maintaining social distance and limiting
gatherings/camp groups to no more than 20 people.
