QUEENSLAND EASES COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS - Planning your ideal backyard holiday


Some exciting news this week as States and territories around Australia begin easing restrictions due to Covid-19. The announcement was made that interstate travel can potentially resume as soon as July, with the Queensland Government setting out a three-step plan in their Roadmap to Easing Restrictions giving people more freedom to visit family and friends, participate in activities and travel.

International borders look like they'll remain restricted for the time being, but Good News! There has never been a better time to holiday in your own back yard to discover our beautiful Island home. For most of us, this means we have some dates to look forward to and can finally start planning that dream holiday!

  • 12th June – Queenslanders can travel within the state
  • 10th July – Interstate travel allowed, groups up to 100 people and opening of national and state parks for recreational activities

If there's one good thing about restricted international travel for Australian tourism - No Crowds! There has never been a better time to visit the Sunshine State with an average of 300 sunny days per year, beaches and family-friends attractions. What's more? A great time to snap up great local deals and plan that epic holiday you've been dreaming about. Thinking about a unique experience for you and your friends? Why not snap up a luxury yacht charter and experience the high life with a day on the water cruising with Whales and Dolphins with a Surfers Paradise backdrop.
