It looked to arrive from and then later depart back to the Gold Coast. 

While Bowenville (near Toowoomba) based Cessna 525 CitationJet CJ1+ bizjet VH-JSZ flew up to Hamilton Island from Archerfield.  It later flew down to Mackay Airport where it appears to be staying.

And AirMed Australia Cessna 510 Citation Mustang bizjet VH-NEQ as "AirMed 923" was noted visiting the region again this week on what appeared to be another medical evacuation flight.  This time it looked to fly up from Archerfield to Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport and then Bundaberg Airport before returning to Archerfield.

Meanwhile, also on Thursday 12 January, The Redcliffe Aero Club Vulcanair (Partenavia) P.68C VH-VMV departed Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport to complete aerial survey work way out to sea.  About six hours later, it landed at Gladstone Airport and looked to stay.  It seems that VH-VMV flew into Hervey Bay Airport from Redcliffe via the Sunshine Coast the previous day.

UDPATE!  On Friday 13 January, VH-VMV was noted completing another six hour or so aerial survey sortie way out to sea, this time out of and back to Gladstone Airport.
