Welcome back to paradise: Island visitors get green light
SOUTH EAST Queensland's islands will open for day trips from midnight tonight.
Families will be able to visit North Stradbroke, Moreton and Fraser Islands from this weekend, a welcome ease to Covid-19 restrictions which saw the islands closed to visitors more than a month ago.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced the re-opening this morning, saying there was a view to welcome back campers and holiday makers in time for the next school holidays.
"So that is really good news," she said.
However she said while restrictions were beginning to ease across the state, people still needed to be vigilant.
"It doesn't mean Queensland is out of the woods.
"It is really important for people as we are opening up these restrictions for people if they're sick to stay at home and get tested also."
