From today Wednesday 23 June 2021, we’ll be increasing our efforts in line with the NSW Government Regulations to support the community in stopping the spread of COVID-19.

This includes ensuring that all staff and visitors to Cockle Bay Wharf participate in contact tracing.

Our venues remain committed to servicing you throughout this period in a COVID-safe way. So when you do visit we ask that you ensure that you check in when visiting an indoor area of Cockle Bay Wharf (including our restroom facilities) and at each venue displaying a QR code.

We would also like to remind you that masks are a requirement whilst working or visiting us unless eating or drinking.  Children under 12, whilst not required are encouraged to also wear a mask.

Our venues will be configured to allow for social distancing and we ask you to be considerate of others and keep 1.5 m apart from those not in your immediate contacts.
