Jun 4, 2020 | Front Page Feature, News

Community members will be able to once again use Community Halls, Sports Complexes and visit the RM Williams Australian Bush Learning Centre (RMWABLC) from tomorrow, Friday 5 June 2020.  The re-openings are slightly earlier than planned as the Queensland State Government fast tracked Stage two of the Roadmap to easing COVID-19 restrictions earlier this week.

From Friday, 5 May 2020 Council’s Community Halls can be booked for small functions, however there are health and safety responsibilities that must be met:

  • Bookings must not exceed the maximum capacity of persons for each space.
  • Sign in registers must be completed and returned to Council.
  • Persons booking the facility will be provided with hand sanitiser

Please contact Council’s Customer Service Team to enquire about booking Community Halls during Stage 2 restrictions.

Sporting groups are once again able to use Council’s Sporting Complexes.  Before getting back out on the field, please liaise with Council’s Sport and Recreation Officer on 1300 696 272 or email

Council Gym’s will not be open until Stage 3, as stipulated by the Queensland Government Industry COVID Safe Plan which doesn’t allow for unsupervised gyms to reopen under Stage 2.

The RMWABLC will be open for Queensland travellers and just in time for the upcoming school holidays, with doors opening from 8.30am on Friday, 5 June 2020.  You can stay up to date with community events and tourism by following @VisitNorthBurnett on Instagram and Facebook.  Don’t forget to tag us in your photos #VisitNorthBurnett #NorthBurnett so that we can share your adventures with other excited travellers!

Council’s Customer Service and Library centres are open!  To keep everyone safe, public health practices has been implemented in our centres and we thank the community for being so accommodating.  From Friday, 5 June all Customer Service and Library Centres will be accepting cash.

“Our community has missed playing sport and seeing travellers eating, spending and sightseeing in our beautiful region.  As always, your health is your responsibility.  We continue to ask that you please stay home if you are sick, maintain social distancing and most importantly, keep washing your hands” Mayor Rachel Chambers said.

Council is awaiting approval of the COVID Safe Plan so that we can safely reopen Council managed Caravan Parks and Camping Grounds.
