Visiting our venues

Our venues are open but operating hours may change. Please check the latest service updates and entry requirements before you visit.

You must wear a mask indoors

In line with NSW Government advice, visitors are required to wear face masks at our indoor facilities unless a relevant exemption applies. Masks are encouraged at outdoor facilities wherever physical distancing is challenging.

Advice may change. Visit the NSW Government website for the latest rules and information.

Disposable and cloth masks are available from supermarkets, pharmacies and hardware stores. If you’re looking for a little more flair and fashion with your face covering, you can pick up a bespoke design.

Under the public health order, a fitted face covering means a mask or other covering that:

  • fits securely around the face
  • is designed or made to be worn over the nose and mouth to provide the wearer with protection against infection.

The best ways to protect yourself and others against Covid-19 remain:

  • practicing physical distancing and avoiding crowds
  • washing your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap, or an alcohol-based hand-rub
  • coughing or sneezing into your elbow or tissue
  • staying home if unwell.

Visit the NSW Government website for further information on current restrictions.

Anyone with symptoms of Covid-19 should get tested.

This information is accurate as of Friday 24 December. Information may change. For up to date information visit the NSW Government website.
