The right choice given everything going on right now, I had plans to do the Sunshine Coast Great Walk over the Easter Break but instead I'll use this time to get my pack weight down and learn a few more knots for my tarp.

I got a warning from the police last Saturday returning to the car from an off track walk in the scenic rim. They said it was unnecessary travel. We were some of the most isolated people on the rim that day. Went for a walk around the block yesterday and passed a total of 62 people

Within 250k. From July 10 all of Qld as I read it and if it goes to plan. I've had my Tasmanian trip cancelled for late June but at least I can head out for a few nights camping down Lamington NP and the like.

Does it differ in the regions? 'Outback' get to travel further do they?

The short version & subject to change. :wink:

Stage 1 Most Qlders...Recreation travel 150kms. Outback 500kms recreation travel if you live there.

Stage 2 Most Qlders...Recreation travel 250kms. Outback recreation travel if you live there.

Stage 3 Interstate border travel begins to open up.

Apparently Stage 2 has kicked in 2weeks early...camping in Qld National Parks now allowed.

Not updated on the Qld National Parks website yet though...

Overnight winter wanders here we come.... :wink:

Booked Rat-a-tat for an excuse to shake the legs and test all the new gear I convinced myself I needed during quarantine :) Excited to see what adventures people have planned
