From 1am Friday 30 July, Queensland residents who return from Victoria or South Australia will be able to quarantine at home instead of in hotel quarantine.
As significant restrictions remain in place across both states to prevent community transmission, Queensland will continue to declare both states as hotspots. Non-Queensland residents will not be allowed to enter Queensland without an exemption.
People who are in home quarantine will be subject to strict compliance measures, and should any evidence of non-compliance arise they will be placed into hotel quarantine.
With the extension of the stay at home orders for Greater Sydney it is unclear if there will be any change to the hard border to NSW at this stage.
Update 22nd July
This will mean from that time, the whole of NSW, SA and Vic will be declared COVID hotspots.
Anyone who has been to a hotspot in the last 14 days or since their identified start date (whichever is shorter) will not be allowed to enter Queensland, unless they are a Queensland resident or have an exemption.
Anyone allowed to enter will need to go into hotel quarantine.
A border zone will be put into place, however residents living in the nominated border zone will be able to come into Queensland for a limited range of reasons, including health care, work, education, essential shopping and if they provide care to vulnerable people. Queenslanders will be able to travel into the New South Wales border zone for similar reasons, but not further than the border zone.
Other COVID Updates
Mask wearing will be extended and strengthened in the 11 South East Queensland local government areas of Brisbane, Moreton Bay, Ipswich, Logan City, Redlands, Sunshine Coast, Noosa, Somerset, Lockyer Valley, Scenic Rim and Gold Coast for one more week until 6am on Friday, July 30. Masks will now be required to be worn in all indoor seated, ticketed venues. This includes all stadiums, theatres and cinemas.
Stadiums across the state with a capacity of 20,000 spectators or more will be required to reduce capacity to 75 per cent. Spectators will now be required to wear masks while seated unless consuming food or drink, in addition to current mask wearing requirements.
Density restrictions in South East Queensland will be eased to match current levels in the regions. This means increased numbers of people allowed at weddings, funerals and indoor events.
Please note this update is from the information provided in the Queensland Government press conference. We expect the Public Health Directions and Roadmap to be updated overnight and will share another update tomorrow morning if there is any additional information you should be aware of.
The Queensland Government has made an announcement in relation to anyone travelling into Queensland that will commence from from 1am Saturday 19 June 2021.
This new measure is to support contact tracing efforts with the new COVID cases announced in NSW overnight (and potentially any future cases in other states).
The declaration is an online form which is designed to be quick and easy, taking only a few minutes to complete. The declaration will need to be made up to 72 hours prior to travelling to Queensland.

This new declaration will be supported by the introduction of a traffic light system similar to what is in place in Victoria. Green will mean no travel restrictions, amber will signify interstate exposure venues and red will indicate the location is a hotspot.
Any guests coming from interstate may be required to complete a Queensland Travel Declaration before they enter Queensland.
To our loyal guests,
Fisherman’s Beach Holiday Park is fully compliant with the COVID-SAFE program and have additional safety and cleaning measures in place to make your stay safe, comfortable and enjoyable.
We understand that we still live in a time of relative uncertainty and, with that in mind, we have decided to introduce a “Book with Confidence Guarantee”.
Fisherman’s Beach Holiday Park
The Book with Confidence Guarantee is applicable if you are no longer able to travel due to COVID-19 related developments. For example: you become sick with COVID-19 or someone immediately connected to you does and you are forced into self-isolation, or the Alert Level changes meaning travel becomes impossible, or there is a Government mandate for you not to travel in your local area/region or the area you intend to travel to. In these and other similar cases there will be no charges levied to make changes to your booking dates. We will provide a 12-month credit or full refund (in exceptional circumstances, determined on a case by case basis).
Please be aware that where your request to amend a booking is not linked to COVID-19 developments, normal T&C’s will apply.
The Australian government have put into place extraordinary measures to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and we can all do our bit at a local level to assist:
General Health and Hygiene
