COVID-19

JULY 8 2020 LOCKDOWN

 

If you reside in an area of Victoria that has been placed in lockdown from 11.59 pm on July 08 2020, please do not make a booking.

If you make a booking to stay during the 6 week lockdown period from July 09 2020, and reside in a locked down region of Victoria, as per the directive from the Victorian Government on Tuesday, July 07 2020, your booking will be cancelled, however, the booking fee will be retained.

 

For all new reservations made as of July 8, 2020, we will no longer apply Force Majeure conditions for guests seeking to cancel or modify bookings due to the current COVID-19 outbreak. These reservations will be treated like any standard booking, according to our Booking Terms & Conditions.

WHAT THIS MEANS

For reservations made on or after July 8, 2020:

1. The COVID-19 Force Majeure procedures that we implemented due to government travel restrictions do not apply

2. As the COVID-19 situation evolves constantly, we reserve the right to reinstate our Force Majeure policy. If we do, the changes will only apply to reservations made after such communication.

For active reservations made before July 8, 2020, regardless of future check-in date there is no change. Our Force Majeure procedures implemented due to government travel restrictions still apply.

*This may be reassessed and extended as we receive updates from official sources regarding COVID-19.[08.07.2020]


For all COVID-19 Park Closures, continue to check Parks Victoria’s dedicated COVID-19 webpage for the most up to date closures and information.
