COVID-19 update

Bankfoot House Heritage Precinct is open. Visitors are required to act on the advice of staff, observe physical distancing, practice good hygiene and check in with the Check In Qld app. 

Anyone entering an indoor setting is required to wear a face mask, subject to exceptions allowed by the Queensland Government. Masks are also required outdoors when you cannot remain 1.5m away from other people.

Proof of vaccination

Council is required to comply with any Public Health Directives issued by the Queensland Government. 

The Queensland Government’s Public Health and Social Measures linked to vaccination status Direction now applies to people aged 16 and over.

In line with this Direction, unvaccinated visitors are not permitted to enter the Bankfoot House Heritage Precinct.

Bankfoot House Heritage Precinct staff reserve the right to refuse entry to visitors that do not comply with this requirement.

Closures and cancellations

With COVID-19 now an everyday part of life in the region, we can expect that staff and visitors will be exposed to the virus at some stage. This means Council will need to close Bankfoot House, reduce opening hours or cancel events from time-to-time at short notice. This may be due to public health directives, cleaning requirements or unavoidable staff shortages. 

Updates on any COVID-19 exposure sites, closures or service changes will be posted on the Heritage website and Council Facebook page. Signs will also be displayed outside affected locations.

While Bankfoot House has specific opening hours, there are various eExhibits, collections and stories available to view online 24/7.
