23 March 2020 - COVID-19 UPDATE

We’re sure you’ve heard the measures announced by the Prime Minister yesterday, and the Premier today. It means a lot of changes, ones that might be tough to handle.

As much as we love to share our part of the world, our healthcare resources are limited and our communities are just as vulnerable as those in the city. We need everyone to respect avoiding non-essential travel. We need you to stay at home.

For the time being we’re asking all visitors to take a breath and put off your trip to our region. If you’re already here, it’s time to go home. We’ll keep our socials busy with images of our region so you can admire from afar.

These are unprecedented times. We hope the time is brief but the best way to make this reality is if we all do the right thing to keep everyone safe. Remember, be kind to others, wash your hands, and (for now) please keep your distance.
