In these unprecedented times, we appreciate the ongoing community concern about the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

We want to reassure you that the team at Darling Harbour have been vigilant in monitoring the situation and share how we are proactively implementing measures to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of all customers, retailers, staff and local community. 

Easing of restrictions for the fully vaccinated

From the Monday 11 October 2021, eased restrictions allow those who are fully vaccinated to have:

  • group bookings of up to 20 people in hospitality settings.
  • Access gyms, indoor recreation and sporting facilities.
  • All premises will operate at 1 person per 4sqm indoors and 1 person per 2sqm outdoors.
  • People under the age of 16 who are not fully vaccinated are allowed unaccompanied in their workplaces and all outdoor settings, but must be with a fully vaccinated member of their household in hospitality venues (unless collecting takeaways), entertainment facilities, major recreation facilities and places of worship, unless they work at the venue.

Some further easing of restrictions are planned for when NSW reaches 80% full vaccinationWe recommend checking the nsw.gov.au/covid-19 website before planning to visit Darling Harbour to be across the most current NSW Government advice.

A focus on cleanliness and hygiene practices

We have high standards of rigorous cleaning and hygiene through our shopping and dining precincts and have recently increased our vigilance of cleaning in frequently used touch points.

We are working closely with our retailer partners to ensure they follow the same levels of cleanliness and hygiene.

As per the guidance of NSW Health, we encourage all customers to maintain good personal hygiene practices including washing your hands often with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand sanitiser, covering your mouth while coughing and sneezing, and keeping your hands away from your eyes, nose and mouth to prevent germs from spreading. If you are unwell, stay home and seek medical attention immediately if you are showing any of the viral symptoms.
