Toowoomba Regional Council is reopening campgrounds from Friday (June 5) in line with the State Government’s Roadmap to Easing COVID-19 restrictions.
“The re-opening of our campgrounds is a further step towards the return to normality,” Mayor Paul Antonio said.
Campgrounds controlled by Council that will reopen include Swinging Bridge Park at Cooyar and Yarraman Weir Park, Yarraman.
“Council rest areas have been allowed to remain open throughout COVID-19 restrictions,” Mayor Antonio said.
“Users will still need to adhere to relevant Queensland Health requirements with a maximum gathering of 20 persons permitted under Stage 2 easing of restrictions.”
There is no limit to the number of groups of 20 but Queensland Health suggests the things to think about when deciding if a park is already too crowded include:
- Is there plenty of distance between each group (can you play ball between each group; can you talk easily without overhearing another group)?
- Is there an empty space for your group to sit comfortably, that is still a good distance from others?
- Is there somewhere less crowded you can go to that isn’t far away?
