Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Updated: Thursday 15 April 2021

Changes to restrictions in Queensland as from 6:00 AM Thursday 15 April 2021.

The health and wellbeing of our customers and staff is our priority and we are working hard to offer a safe service that meets social distancing and hygiene guidelines by:

  • Face masks are strongly encouraged indoors or when physical distancing is not possible.
  • One person per two square metres rule applies in indoor spaces - remember to physically distance - keeping 1.5 metres away from others
  • Remember to stay home if you're sick and get tested if you have any COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Wash your hands often and thoroughly. 
  • Programs will continue to be offered online
  • Cashless transactions are preferred
  • As directed in the Restrictions on Businesses, Activities and Undertakings Direction - contact information (name, phone number, email address, and the date and time period of your visit) of staff and guests entering our galleries and museums will be recorded. For convenient check in, Council is using the Check in Qld app. To download the app or for more information please visit Check in Qld.

Note: If galleries and museums have reached maximum capacity, you may be asked to wait until space is free. Galleries and museums may offer alternative activities and walk recommendations during this time.
