Can I fly to Emerald right now?

There are currently restrictions on flights to Emerald along with the rest of Australia. Before you book or search for flights, consider the following restrictions: Entry restrictions

Australia has restricted the entry of all travelers, with the exception of Australian nationals and permanent residents and their immediate family members, New Zealand nationals residing in Australia, diplomats accredited to Australia and residing in Australia and their immediate family members, and airline crew. Australia has enacted temporary travel restrictions for flights to Melbourne due to a recent increase in COVID-19 cases.

Entry requirements

Travelers who are not Australian citizens and returning permanent residents and their immediate family members need to apply for an exemption to enter Australia.

Quarantine requirements

All international travelers are required to quarantine for 14 days at the first point of entry, unless they're granted an exemption upon request. Quarantines take place in state-designated facilities and fees depend on the state, ranging from $2500 for one adult in the Northern Territory to $3000 for one adult in New South Wales. International flights are currently being diverted away from Victoria. Airline crew are subject to self-isolation until their next scheduled flight.

Transiting rules

Foreign nationals may transit through Australia if the connecting flight is within 72 hours of the arriving flight. They must either have a transit visa or be nationals of a visa-exempt country. Transit passengers don’t need to apply for an exemption to travel restrictions if they are booked to depart on a connecting flight from the same airport within 72 hours and they are not going to leave the airport. Travelers who plan to leave the airport before boarding their connecting flight or who will be at the airport for longer than 72 hours need to apply for a travel exemption here and will be subject to quarantine until their departing flight. Travelers from New Zealand and Pacific Islanders may not need a travel exemption. More information on transiting Australia is available here.

Famous for its luminous sapphires and its vivid fields of sunflowers, Emerald is a relaxed, welcoming holiday town at the heart of Australia’s sun-soaked state of Queensland.

The town itself has a number of important 19th century buildings, including its elegant railway station which also links Emerald to the bustling city of Brisbane – a few hours down the line. Even more historic, at the center of town, visitors will find a fossilized tree that is thought to be 250 million years old.

For a leisurely afternoon stroll, the town’s Botanical Gardens are gorgeous, with rainforest exhibits and gently rippling lily ponds – an ideal site for a family picnic. Emerald is also a water sports center. The wide expanse of Lake Maraboon provides the perfect environment for boating, water-skiing and kayaking, not to mention fishing.

The area around the town rose to prominence in the 19th century when word spread about its rich gemstone resources. Nowadays, visitors can drive to the gemfields at towns like Rubyvale and see some of the most stunning examples of the earth’s bounty.

Hikers will be in their element in the region, and there are marvellous sights of natural beauty like Emerald Falls, with its series of falls and lagoons inviting hikers to take a secluded dip. The countryside also has plenty of mountain biking trails, and maps can be picked up in town showing the routes.

The city is also home to a number of annual events like the Central Highlands Multi-Cultural Festival, with its vibrant range of cultural offerings and costumes. Though the town may be small, there is always something new to explore.

Best Time to Fly to Emerald

Being in the center of Queensland, Emerald can be extremely warm in the summer months between November and March, and many of the outdoor attractions will be tough to access during these months. Visiting in April and May or between September and October may be perfect. With mild weather, constant sunshine and no crowds, you may have the trails to yourself. Traveling in July and August can be risky, with the chance of floods, but if the weather is fine then this is also a great time to visit.

Getting around Emerald

Emerald is not large enough to really need an extensive public transport service, and you can reach the town’s attractions by foot or bicycle, if necessary. To see the gemfields or walking trails, a rugged rental car will be required, while you can also reach the coast by the Spirit of the Outback train service.
