Queensland flooding: travel update

Article content

7 January 2011

In a statement, Tourism Queensland said: "For most international visitors (travelling by air), their stay in Queensland will not be impacted."

The "most significant problems" are currently on the Bruce Highway - the main road between the state capital Brisbane in the south and Cairns - and the rail line, cut north of Gladstone, as well as the closure of Rockhampton Airport.

"While there are domestic and international visitors experiencing challenges - mainly those embarking on self-drive holidays - most Queensland international-focused product is operating as ’business as usual’," it said.

Tourism Queensland has insisted that the majority of the state’s tourism destinations including Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Fraser Coast, and Tropical North Queensland were "currently accessible and are fully open for business".
