Three controversially closed camping grounds on North Stradbroke Island have reopened to tent bookings in time for Easter as COVID-19 restrictions ease, but the limits of four adults or two adults and three children per site remain.

The ABC reports this follows the announcement from Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk last Thursday that the limit on people allowed at camp sites would be removed from 1am on Saturday, March 13.

In a statement, Minjerribah Camping, owned by Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation (QYAC), announced guests on the waitlist for tent camping at Amity Point, Adder Rock, and Home Beach campgrounds had been contacted to book now-opened campsites.

"Minjerribah Camping welcomes the Premiers decision to lift COVID restrictions on camping in Queensland," the statement said.

"Any remaining tent camping sites at Amity, Adder Rock and Home Beach for guests not on the waitlist will be available to book through our website from Wednesday, March 17."

But in a social media post, Minjerribah Camping clarified the maximum cap on each campsite at all locations of four adults or two adults and three children under 16, including infants, would remain.
