Covid-19 Update

We are open, individual store hours may vary.

Let's work together to stop the spread. 

 

The Australian Government introduced guidelines and restrictions on social distancing and social gatherings in the last weeks of March 2020. Because of this, we've been sad to see some of our retailers close. Many are still open and here to serve you, but may have changed how they operate, or their opening hours. We’re committed to keeping you updated, please click here to view individual store opening hours.

 

This is a tough time for all our customers, retailers and employees within our community, across Australia and the world, but the health, safety and well-being of our community and our loved ones is most important. Things are changing every day, so let’s stay calm, safe and look after each other.

 

Under these new restrictions, shopping centres will remain open, and we’re here to continue serving our community, ensuring that you have access to the products and services you need to carry on, when you need them.

 

The changes to our centre include:

  • Beauty salons, nail, massage and tanning salons and tattoo parlours will be closed

  • Hair salons and barbers will remain open and social distancing must be observed

  • Cafes, restaurants and food courts will be restricted to serving takeaway food only

  • Cinemas, auditoriums, entertainment venues, pubs together with registered and licensed clubs (excluding bottle shops attached to these venues) will be locked

  • Amusement parks and arcades will be closed

  • Community and recreation centres, gyms, yoga and barre studios, spin facilities, fitness centres and spas will be closed. Large groups of people doing physical activities are banned however external boot camps and personal training is permitted and limited to 10 people (social distancing measures will apply)
  • Swimming pools, libraries and playcentres will be closed
  • Community halls, clubs, RSLs, PCYC and places of worship will be closed, with weddings restricted to five people and funerals no more than 10 people

 

Some businesses and services have been exempted from these changes and will remain open including all health-related services (for example physiotherapists).

 

We will be open and operating as normal except for these above restrictions.

 

To help all of us and our community stay safe and healthy, all restrictions relating to social distancing stay in place and must be strictly followed, so please let's work together to stop the spread:

  • All non-essential indoor gatherings of less than 100 people must have no more than one person per 4sqm

  • Keep 1.5 metres between yourselves and others

Stay safe and see you soon,
