Speaking with reporters Sunday, Ms Palaszczuk said Queenslanders would be able to shop for non-essential items, go driving and have picnics.
They will also be allowed to meet with people not from their households and travel within 50km of their home.

Queensland is the first Australian state to relax COVID-19 restrictions.
She stressed the changes were minor and that if Queenslanders did not act sensibly, the restrictions would be enforced again.
“I know these sound like strict rules, everyone, but we are in different times and I’m trying to be flexible and listen to what the public is saying,” she said.
Queensland recorded just three new cases of coronavirus on Saturday.
There are now 1030 cases in Queensland.
