The safety and wellbeing of our Guests and Managers are the highest priority as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to pose a health risk.  We assure you that we are taking hygiene seriously. You can be confident that Currawong Beach Cottages are being cleaned to the highest of standards, and that our Managers are employing heightened levels of sanitation.

We remind Guests to plan ahead before booking to stay at Currawong.  Please be mindful of the current Government guidelines relating to COVID-19 to understand whether you are eligible to travel and stay at Currawong.

For the safety of our Guests and Managers and to comply with current COVID-19 restrictions, Guests visiting Currawong must comply with Government and Public Health Order directions while on the site, including public distancing and group numbers.

We will follow the Government guidelines when implementing our cancellation policy if the Government guidelines change between your booking date and your arrival.  However, please ensure that you and those in your group are eligible to travel and stay at Currawong at the time of booking (e.g. no border restrictions apply and your group does not exceed the maximum number of people allowed), or you may not be entitled to a credit or refund.   

If you already have a booking with us but are now impacted by COVID-19 travel restrictions, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can help you re-book.

Fires and firewood

  • We will supply wood for the indoor fire in Midholme during the winter months.
  • For the outdoor fire pit you will need to collect your own firewood.

Management discretion

  • Bookings for 'schoolies week' will not be accepted.
  • In the unlikely event that your requested cabin is not available, you will be relocated to an alternative cabin of comparable quality.

For the safety and enjoyment of all visitors to the park, the person who makes a booking is responsible for the behaviour of others staying at that site and must be present for the duration of the booked dates.

Moorings

  • We have 2 slip ropes for smaller boats and 1 deep water mooring available for in-house guests. To secure one of these moorings during your stay, you will need to book in advance of your arrival. 

Native wildlife

  • Visiting Currawong State Park is a wonderful opportunity to view some of our native animals up close in their natural habitat.  But children are very inquisitive and can be eager to get that little bit closer to these animals. 
  • Please be mindful that they are native animals, used to their own habitat and natural foods.  Please do not feed the animals or leave food for them to forage. 
  • Human food can make them sick and if they are expected to be fed by holiday makers, they can become aggressive. 
  • Native animals are best viewed from afar.

Noise

  • The peaceful enjoyment of all guests at Currawong Beach Cottages and its facilities is important.
  • Please be aware that between 10pm and 6am noise restrictions take effect and outside noise needs to be kept to a minimum. 
  • If you are entertaining in the outside areas please be aware of this or move guests inside. 
  • Amplified music is not permitted outdoors so as not to disturb other guests who come here for the quiet.
