As part of our  ‘StaySafe’ Program, we continue to work very closely with the relevant state authorities to follow their expert health advice and recommendations to help ensure that any recreational facilities that are permitted to reopen are done in a way that minimises the transmission of COVID-19. The recommendations that have been implemented have been provided by the Queensland Government for our Brisbane and Gold Coast hotels, and the New South Wales Government for our Sydney hotels.

Below is the latest information about all our facilities, in line with our ‘StaySafe’ program:
