We thank you for your patience and understanding, and look forward to seeing you all here soon. 


This afternoon the Premier of Victoria announced that Stage 4 restrictions will be enacted for all of Victoria from 11.59pm tonight to 11.59pm on Wednesday the 17th of February.  These changes are being implemented to protect our community from the risk of coronavirus (COVID-19). 

As a result, our visitor attractions will be closed over those 5 days, and we are contacting all ticketholders with bookings during that period to provide full refunds, and we thank you for your patience as we process these.
