Where can and can’t locals visit when restrictions ease

AS OF Saturday, May 2, South Burnett residents will once again be allowed to go bushwalking, have a picnic, drive as far as 50 kilometres and go shopping for non-essentials.

It's good news for boaties and anglers who are now allowed to recreationally take out their boat or go fishing.

Dams in the region will be open as of Saturday May 2.

Boondooma Dam falls outside the 50 kilometre radius for the majority of the South Burnett.

Bjelke-Petersen Dam sits approximately 29 kilometres outside of Kingaroy.

The best bet for a fish in the South Burnett would be Ficks Crossing outside of Wondai.

Coomba Falls sits 35 kilometres outside of Kingaroy and it is a great spot to go for a walk and cool off.

All of these activities must be done with people from your household and a maximum of one other, while adhering to social distancing guidelines.
