Queensland reopens its borders: Here’s what you need to know

Posted: 9 December 2020 10:25 am

Set your summer travel clocks for 12 December 2020.

Queensland premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has announced that the Queensland border is reopening to Adelaide without restrictions.

As of 1am 12 December 2020, all South Australian residents are free to cross into Queensland. Just in time for the summer school holidays.

The premier went to Twitter announcing that "The border reopening is subject to no unlinked cases in the community".

What's next?

Just like other states, residents looking to head into Queensland must still apply for a border pass.

Getting your hands on one is simple, all you have to do is apply for the Queensland Border Declaration Pass. If you live within the current border zone, then you'll still be applying as a Border Zone Resident.

Queensland's chief health officer, Dr Jeannette Young has said "South Australia has not seen any cases in the last week and they've now had a total of 33 cases related to that Parafield cluster".

"I'm very confident about the large amount of testing they've done and the large numbers of people they've placed into quarantine", she continued.

This news follows the state's decision to open up to all of NSW, as a result of low coronavirus numbers.

Inspiration is never too far away

The Queensland summer school holidays fall merely days after the border reopening.

Take your pick from a selection of family-friendly destinations including the Gold Coast, Brisbane and the picturesque Sunshine Coast.
