Wearing Masks Indoors

A: In line with the most recent NSW health advice on Covid-19, mask wearing is now mandatory in our attractions for all attendees 12 years and over and excludes those with certain health conditions and / or disabilities.

A: A face covering is not mandatory in our indoor attractions under some circumstances including:

  • Infants and children under the age of 12 years but it is encouraged that children wear a mask where practicable.
  • A person who is affected by a relevant medical condition, including problems with their breathing, a serious condition of the face, a disability or a mental health condition
  • Persons who are deaf or hard of hearing, where the ability to see the mouth is essential for communication
  • When consuming food, drink or medication

For latest updates in regards to the guidelines about face coverings please monitor the NSW Department of Health website.

A: The public health order indicates that you are exempt from wearing a mask if you have a medical excuse. This includes, but not limited to, if you have a physical or mental health illness or condition, or disability, that makes wearing a mask unsuitable (for example, a skin condition, an intellectual disability, autism or trauma).

Please let our staff know if you have a medical exemption upon your arrival. 

It is recommended by the Chief Health Officer that masks be a "fitted face covering"  that fits securely around the face, it must be designed to be worn over the nose and mouth.

Scarfs or bandanas are not recommended and when wearing a single-use mask, please consider the responsible disposal of it by putting it in the rubbish bin after using it once.

To learn more about suitable three layers masks please visit the NSW Government Department of Health website.

A: Staff will wear a face mask at our attractions in accordance with the State Government recommendations.
