Keeping you safe

Just a heads up – Open Day is going to be a little different this year. We want to make sure you and your family stay safe and healthy. Here are a few things to note.

  • All information sessions and tours need to be pre-booked. We need to monitor maximum capacities to our venues to ensure we’re complying with the four square metre rule.
  • All attendees need to check in on arrival and provide contact details.
  • The Expo Hub will have capacity restrictions.
  • Social distancing will be required at all times (including on buses).
  • All venues will be regularly sanitised throughout the day.
  • All merchandised and course guides are self-serve.
  • Sanitiser and face masks will be available.
  • Some items provided on the day (like bottled water and eating utensils) will be single-use. This goes against our sustainability guidelines, but is a requirement to meet government regulations.

Can we help you find what you’re looking for?
