Stop the spread
As at 3 April 2020, the Queensland Government has authorised the temporary closure of several high use visitor locations in national parks, state forests and recreation areas to hopefully stop the spread of the Coronavirus. This decision follows the closure of all camping areas and visitor centres across Queensland which came into effect on the 26 March 2020.

The areas that are subject to this temporary closure include high use picnic and day-use areas, toilet and shower facilities, lookouts, swimming holes, mountain bike and walking tracks and trails as well as four-wheel drive beach areas in National Parks, State Forests and recreation areas managed by the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service.
The following locations, in alphabetical order, will be closed and will remain closed until further notice.
Park or forest: Beerburrum East State Forest Specific location to close: Coochin Creek

The Queensland State Government have requested that people not attempt to visit any of the above closed national parks, state forests or recreation areas, for the safety and protection of the community. These closures will all be strictly monitored and penalties may well apply for non-compliance by the public.
