COVID-19 Update - 8 August 2020

We are excited to announce Bedarra is open to guests and taking reservations…

Bedarra opened to guests from 1 July 2020 and we continue to strive towards providing our guests the secluded and isolated tropical escape we have become renowned for.

In light of current uncertainty, and to enable our guests to book their stay with us with confidence, we have amended our current booking terms and conditions allowing for a full refund or date change without penalty should your travel be disrupted due to COVID-19. Please see here for further details.


We are constantly managing changing travel restrictions related to the Queensland border and international travel and will update this page as further information becomes available.


Queensland Border Restrictions

The current status of travel for Australian based guests travelling to Queensland effective from 1:00am on 8 August is as follows:

QLD based guests

No restriction unless you have travelled to a designated Covid-19 hotspot within the last 14 days.

SA, TAS, NT, WA based guests

Travel to QLD is permissible subject to completing and being granted a Queensland Border Declaration Pass.

NSW, VIC & ACT based guests

Unfortunately, these three States and Territories have been designated Covid-19 hotpots by the Queensland Government and travel for residents is currently not permitted to Queensland. The Queensland Government have advised they will review this restriction at the end of August 2020.


For any guests with existing or potential reservations impacted by these restrictions, we recommend contacting our friendly reservations team to discuss your travel dates, the likelihood of being able to travel and any resulting reservation amendments required.

Unfortunately we do not have any update on when we will be able to accept reservations from international travellers, however as soon as restrictions are lifted then we will be in a position to provide further updates.



Please note that as a result of many of our guests with amended reservations postponing their stays until later this year, and in conjunction with an increasing demand for domestic vs international travel by Australians, we are showing limited availability in some date ranges and villas for the balance of 2020.

As Queensland Government travel restrictions have constantly changed with short notice and will likely to continue to do so, our availability is also constantly changing as guests travel plans are affected. For this reason, we are maintaining a waitlist for the remainder of 2020 for any periods that are fully booked in the likely event we have last-minute cancellations.

If your preferred dates or villa type are not available online, please do not hesitate to contact our friendly reservations team directly to confirm any availability options that may not be displaying online, or to be placed on our waitlist for high demand periods.


We are both excited and fortunate to be open and welcoming guests again, and we look forward to welcoming you to Bedarra soon!

With regards,

Geoffrey, Sam, Kerri-Ann & The Bedarra Team
