Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

Oh my gosh, how exciting is this news! Or is it? Perhaps, 'others' feel like me, that we have become comfortable in our little cocoons at home and are feeling ever so apprehensive about venturing outdoors and once again spreading our wings. But, then on the other side of the coin, what absolutely fantastic news that we can at last start planning some new adventures. Same, same but new!

And, to keep our spirits and optimism up, a future action plan is the way to go!

As announced on Friday 8 May 2020, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk is implementing the following roadmap to easing restrictions throughout Queensland.

From Friday 15 May, Stage 1 will be implemented and the following will be permitted:

Get-togethers up to a maximum of ten people together in a public space;
A maximum of ten guests will be permitted to dine in at restaurants, pubs, clubs, RSL's and cafe's at the same time, as part of the gradual re-opening of dining venues. I've heard, via the grapevine, that certain dining establishments feel it might not be viable to only open for ten guests, so this will, no doubt, be dependant on individual businesses.
No bars or gaming will be authorised at this stage;
Recreational travelling up to a radius of 150km from your home for day trips, will be permitted;
Some beauty therapies and nail salons may open for up to ten people at one time. Saunas, massage therapy venues and tattoo parlours remain closed.
The re-opening of libraries, playground equipment, skate parks and outdoor gyms for a maximum of ten people at one time;
The number of wedding guests is to be increased to ten people and funeral attendance will be increased to twenty people indoors and thirty guests outdoors;
Re-opening of public pools and lagoons for eg South Bank, Cairns and Airlie Beach - again to a maximum of ten people at any one time (this one is going to be a tough one to implement) or greater numbers with an approved plan.
Real Estate open homes and auctions with a maximum of ten people at one time

Doors will soon be opening to holiday travel within our region - Image: santiagotorresc195 to Pixabay License


For Outback Queensland, where there have been no COVID cases, two special concessions have been made:

Dining in at pubs and cafes will be permitted for up to twenty locals, reflecting the important role these venues play in connecting small outback communities; and
As a reflection of the long distances in the Outback, outback communities may recreational travel up to a radius of 500 kilometres.

Stage 2, effective from Friday, 12 June, will include all of the above, plus:

A maximum of twenty guests will be permitted at get-togethers in homes - our 'party' neighbours are going to be oh-so-happy about this stage;
Restaurants, pubs, clubs, cafes and RSL's will be permitted to open up their venues for up to twenty guests at a time; and
Queenslanders will be permitted to holiday travel within the Queensland region

Stage 3, effective from Friday, 10 July will include all of the above, plus:

reviewing border closures and increasing up to one hundred customers per venue. This will hopefully give some sort of assurance to business, communities and families to be able to plan ahead.

Queensland, keep up the good work, but always remember to be safety conscious, wash your hands (every time you think of it), social distance and download the COVIDSafe App. Stay safe and stay healthy, Queensland, we've got this!
