9th September 2021

Restrictions are easing in Regional Victoria as of midnight tonight; this is good news but regretfully, we will not be opening just yet.

Hospitality restrictions are harsh; with only 10 guests allowed inside and 20 guests allowed outside at any one time! For a venue with a capacity of over 250 patrons, it is not viable for us to open at this stage.

Our campground is closed however our accommodation is open to Regional Victorians in household bubbles.

We sincerely apologise to all of our amazing loyal customers and staff and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause!

We will notify you all as soon as we know when we will be able to reopen.
