BEFORE YOU RETURN TO WATERGARDENS:
PLAN YOUR VISIT
As part of the Stage 4 restrictions commencing at 11.59pm on Wednesday 5 August, you can only travel up to 5km from your home to shop for necessary goods and services, please keep this in mind if you are planning on visiting Watergardens for your essential needs.
Before arriving please review the list of open retailers and individual conditions of entry located here. As restrictions have impacted all our retailers in different ways, you may find it will take a little longer for some of your favourite stores to return to business as usual.
Here are other key points to think about when planning your visit:
ONE PERSON PER HOUSEHOLD
As per the Victorian Government’s Stage 4 restrictions, only one person per household can leave home at any one time to get necessary goods and services. They can leave once a day, which means people can’t do multiple shopping trips.
If you are unable to leave a child, children or a person in your care at home unattended, then they may accompany you. We ask that you follow these directives when visiting Watergardens.
