Information for visitors regarding COVID-19

In anticipation of our School Holidays special opening, which we are very pleased about, we have been carefully planning the measures we need to implement, in line with the NSW Government’s health guidelines, to keep everyone at the Centre safe during this period.

Our priority for our reopening is to keep all our visitors and staff safe. Understanding that some people might be cautious about returning to the Centre and knowing it will not be the same experience as it was before COVID-19. We are hopeful that the pleasure of being back at our much-loved marine centre will outweigh the inconvenience of the necessary safety measures we are putting in place.

To assist you to plan for your time at the Centre in the school holidays, we have provided information about the measures put in place to keep everyone safe. I hope these measures provide you some level of comfort when you are with us.
