Are there currently restrictions on travel to Proserpine related to COVID-19?

Yes, there are currently restrictions on flights to Proserpine along with the rest of Australia. Before you book or search for flights, consider the following 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. Travelers who are not Australian citizens and returning permanent residents and their immediate family members need to apply for an exemption to enter Australia. Australia has enacted temporary travel restrictions for flights to Melbourne due to a recent increase in COVID-19 cases. 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. For more information on quarantine rules in the Australian states, check the following websites: New South Wales The Northern Territory Western Australia 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. Travelers planning to travel across Australian state borders should note that some Australian states also have domestic travel restrictions, border restrictions, and quarantine requirements in place. In the case of onward travel within Australia, travelers are advised to check in advance with their travel/accommodation provider.. If you are looking to book a trip to Proserpine and are outside of the restricted areas, please take the proper precautions and stay informed about traveling during COVID-19.

When people visit Proserpine chances are their final destinations are Airlie Beach and the Whitsunday Islands. A bit of time in this pleasant country town provides a nice change of pace. 

Proserpine’s business is sugar and beef. Legend has it that the town received its name from the explorer George Dalyrmple, who was struck by the rich fertile landscapes and called it after Persephone, the Greek goddess of fertility (Proserpine is the Latin name). Today, fields of sugar cane still dominate the countryside and the Proserpine Sugar Mill is a landmark.

There are some charming Art Deco buildings dotted about Main Street, and the Historical Museum and Cultural Hall shine a light on Proserpine’s past. For picnics and playgrounds, Pioneer Park and Mill Street Park are both pleasant spaces.

A little outside Proserpine (12 miles), Cedar Creek Falls is a beautiful spot for bush walks with a year-round natural swimming pool. Slightly further away, about 19 miles, is Conway National Park, which has sumptuous views over the Whitsundays.

Lake Proserpine (also known as Peter Faust Dam) is 16 miles inland from Proserpine, a favorite with fishermen who find some of the largest Barramundi and Sooty Grunter in its waters.

Proserpine Travel Information

  • If you don’t like Barramundi, you could try to catch Red Claws with a crab pot at Peter Faust Dam. You’ll need a Stocked Impoundment Permit for this (pick one up online at the Queensland Government website – www.smartservice.qld.gov.au). 
  • If you’re in Proserpine before harvest (winter time), you may catch sight of a cane fire. Farmers set the fields on fire to burn off the excess before harvesting the following day.
