The safety of our attendees is paramount.
Due to COVID-19 health considerations attendees must register for a ticket as per State Government guidelines so that we have details for contact tracing and don't go over the capacity limits.
We will be providing a Service Victoria QR code for checking in and manual sign in option for those without smartphones. You will need to bring proof of your double vaccinated status and we ask that you not attend if you have COVID symptoms or have been a close contact.
We will provide hand sanitiser. Masks will be compulsory indoors at this time. Unless exempt, we do recommend bringing one with you due to it being a high density area and some attendees potentially being immunocompromised.
Thank you for understanding.
