We're currently getting in touch with those who have existing bookings.  Only bookings that comply with current Australian Government directives around social gatherings will be able to proceed. We strongly recommend that all non-essential bookings be cancelled or postponed, regardless of size.

These measures will be in place until further notice. We apologise for any inconvenience.
