Queensland will dismantle its road border checkpoints as it opens up to almost all of Australia next week.
Only Adelaide residents will have to quarantine for 14-days on arrival in Queensland after the state government announced that Victorians will be free to visit from 1am on December 1.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk congratulated Victoria for following NSW in going 28 days without an unlinked case of coronavirus.
All Australians, except for those living the SA capital, will be able to enter Queensland without quarantining from Tuesday.
"Victoria will be good to go to come up to Queensland as well," Ms Palaszczuk told Seven's Sunrise program on Wednesday.
"Congratulations to Daniel Andrews and his team down there, and to all of the Victorians, and we look forward to welcoming you to Queensland.
"And please stop by and say hello if you see me out and about during the holidays because it's going to be wonderful."
Police Deputy Commissioner Steve Gollschewski said every road border checkpoint will be dismantled by December 1.
There will be no more border passes either, but police will be randomly checking vehicles for people from Adelaide.
"So the great thing for people coming into Queensland, and particularly our neighbours across the border, (is) it will be back to normal for them," he told reporters.
Commissioner Gollschewski said taking down the checkpoints means 200 officers per day can return to normal policing after a "mammoth" nine-month operation.
The deputy commissioner said more than one million vehicles had been intercepted, 640,000 domestic passengers had been checked, and 50,000 people had been ordered into quarantine.
He noted that only 2500 fines had been issued amid the millions of checks.
Virgin Australia, in which the state holds an equity stake, will offer 38,000 extra seats on ramped up flights between Victoria and Queensland before Christmas.
General manager Russell Shaw said the reopening will support jobs at Virgin, other airlines and the tourism industry, while reuniting families with their loved ones in Victoria.
"We look forward to safely welcoming them back onboard as they return to Queensland to do business or to reunite with family and friends," he said in a statement.
In the event of a future interstate outbreak, Queensland will impose restrictions on a specific geographical area under a new hotspot regime.
The borders are unlikely to close to an entire state again, but Commissioner Gollschewski said police could reinstate the checkpoints within a day.
Premier Palaszczuk warned there was a risk Queensland could return to semi-lockdown if an unlinked case of coronavirus emerged.
She used the example South Australia, which last week went into lockdown after a worker at an Adelaide quarantine hotel contracted the virus and spurred a new cluster in the city.
"I can't predict the future," she added.
Ms Palaszczuk stressed that every state's hotel quarantine program needed to be "rock solid" to protect the health of the community.
She called on the federal government to be extremely careful when considering any changes to Australia's national borders.
"Let's get Australia to stay on course, let's open up Australia for Australia," she told Sunrise.
"But there is real danger in taking back into Australia too many overseas international arrivals if our quarantine systems cannot cope."
Ms Palaszczuk also indicated she has buried the hatchet with NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian, who has constantly criticised the border closure.
She brushed off her NSW counterpart's barbs over previous months as "Gladys just being Gladys".
"I expect that - I have always handled myself with dignity, and I will always put my state first, and she will always look after her state. That's the way it is," Ms Palaszczuk said.
"But, we will rub in the State of Origin."
