Covid Safe Event

People must not attend the event if they have COVID-19 symptoms.

  • Stay at home if unwell or have a cough, fever, sore throat, fatigue or shortness of breath.

  • If you become unwell during the event, locate event officials or call the Coordinator on 0478 039 322

  • Maintaining physical distancing is the individual’s responsibility.

  • Sign in at the Rainbow Beach Community Hall using the QR code and Queensland Contact Tracking App.

  • Bring your mask in case it is required where social distancing is not possible.

Ticket sales and onsite monitoring of the numbers of people entering and exiting the event site will ensure no more than the maximum site capacity indoors of the Hall (150) is not exceeded.

We will arrange furniture and seating to facilitate social distancing.

People will travel in their own cars to sites as opposed to car pooling this year. Some events will require 4WD access and walking but many sites only require 2WD access and walking. A moderate level of fitness will be required to access the field sites.

Cooloola BioBlitz 2022

Planning has commenced for the 2022 Cooloola BioBlitz on K'gari (Fraser Island). Follow the Cooloola BioBlitz FaceBook Group to stay in touch.
