From Monday 31 January, proof of vaccination requirements will expand to apply to venues and events state-wide, including new higher-risk venues. We are currently finalising the details of how the Town's operations will adapt to this state government mandate, however at this stage we can confirm the following:

  • Proof of vaccination will be required for all patrons of the Matt Dann Theatre and Cinema from Monday 31 January.
  • Proof of vaccination will be required for all patrons of Wanangkura Stadium and Gratwick Fitness Centre from Monday 31 January.

We expect the mandate to impact more Town venues and operations into the future. We ask all community members to please be respectful and kind to staff at our facilities, who may request you to show proof of vaccination from Monday 31 January. 

We will provide updates for the community on this webpage and on the Town's Facebook page moving forward.
