House parties, nightclubs and concerts are back but will be different

House parties, nightclubs and large concerts will return to Queensland on Friday after stage three restrictions were brought forward.

From noon on Friday, 100 people will be allowed to gather indoors and event attendance can swell to 10,000 people if venues have a COVID-safe plan.

Deputy Premier and Health Minister Steven Miles said Queenslanders would be able to have a beer at the bar, play the pokies, order a counter meal or go to the casino.

“For small businesses like restaurants and cafes, for couples getting married, for young people wanting to celebrate their 21st at home, for community sporting teams and their spectators, for sports fans, museum-goers and event managers, life has gotten easier,” he said.
