Visitor safety advice for tourism operators
While Queensland is a friendly and safe place to travel, it does pose some real risks for tourists who are away from their home environment (e.g. tourists who aren't strong swimmers or who aren't fluent in English).
Engaging with your visitors directly – talking to them clearly about safety risks – reduces the likelihood of accidents and injuries, ensuring that they have a memorable and safe holiday experience.
Use our safety tips to keep your clients safe while holidaying in Queensland's beautiful recreational spaces:
- beach safety
- swimming in creeks, lakes, rivers and dams
- heat and sun safety
- parks and forests safety
- camping safety
- boating safety
- dangerous marine life
- safety when travelling.
- Read the Water safety handbook, developed with Surf Life Saving Queensland, to find out how to keep visitors safe in the water.
