Gatherings and work - Queensland

Updated on 8 October2021, at 16:00 AET

  • Gatherings in the home are limited to 100 people.
  • There’s no limit for people gathering in outdoor public spaces.
  • People in home quarantine need to follow their home quarantine requirements — regardless of where they are in the state.

If you live in one of the 11 local government areas in South-East Queensland — Brisbane, Ipswich, Logan City, Moreton Bay, Redlands, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Noosa, Somerset, Lockyer Valley and Scenic Rim — or have been there in the last 14 days, face mask rules remain in place — see ‘Face masks — Queensland' in the Restriction Checker for more details.

Brisbane, Gold Coast, Moreton Bay, Logan, Townsville and Palm Island

Brisbane, Gold Coast, Moreton Bay, Logan, Townsville and Palm Island are under stage 3 restrictions. This means that:

  • up to 100 people can gather in homes. There’s no limit for people gathering in public spaces
  • indoor venues have a density limit 1 person per 2 square metres or 100 per cent capacity with ticketed and allocated seating
  • eating and drinking while standing is allowed

Face masks must be worn indoors at all times, and outdoors when you’re unable to stay 1.5 metres away from other people. Use the healthdirect Restriction Checker for further information.
