Nsw policy

Due to NSW State Government regulations, we now require all guests over the age of 16 to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination for entry into Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq Alexandria.

On arrival, from November 1, our venue team in NSW will need to see a copy of your vaccination status or medical exemption, which can be in the form of:

  • Printed or digital COVID-19 vaccination certificate;
  • Online immunisation history statement - downloaded from MyGov, Medicare; or
  • Medical exemptions provided from a medical practitioner in the form approved by the relevant States’ Chief Health Officer

Guests under the age of 16 without a vaccination must be accompanied by an adult from their household who is fully vaccinated within our venues at all times i.e. One (1) fully vaccinated guest over the age of 16 per every (1) guest unvaccinated under the age of 16. If under 16 guests are fully vaccinated they can attend alone.

In the event that guests over the age of 16 are unable to provide proof of vaccination or exemption, due to State NSW Government guidelines similar to liquor licensing rules we will not be able to provide entry to venues, due to financial penalties for guests and businesses.

From the 15 December 2021 OR when NSW reaches 95% double vaccinated (whichever comes first): all guests (including those under 16) can attend unvaccinated.

We will endeavour to provide any further updates or information relevant to each State or Local Government on this page, but if you have any further questions about our policy or wish to provide feedback, we suggest guests get in touch via [email protected]

VIC Policy

Due to Victorian State Government regulations, we now require all guests over the age of 12 years (and two months) to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination for entry into Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq Docklands.

On arrival, our venue team in Victoria will need to see a copy of your vaccination status or medical exemption, which can be in the form of:

  • Printed or digital COVID-19 vaccination certificate;
  • Online immunisation history statement - downloaded from MyGov, Medicare; or
  • Medical exemptions provided from a medical practitioner in the form approved by the relevant States’ Chief Health Officer

Guests under the age of 18 who are fully vaccinated may attend our venues without an adult (except where liquor licensing and other relevant venue policies apply.)

Guests under the age of 12 (and 2 months) who are not fully vaccinated may enter but only if accompanied by an adult (+18) who is fully vaccinated. There is no limit to the number of unvaccinated under 12s that can be accompanied by one individual vaccinated adult and they do not have to be from the same household. If the guest is 12 years (and 2 months) or older, they are not able to enter our venues unless fully vaccinated or medically exempt.

In the event that guests over the age of 12 (and 2 months) are unable to provide proof of vaccination or exemption, due to VIC State Government guidelines similar to liquor licensing rules we will not be able to provide entry to venues, due to financial penalties for guests and businesses.

It is an expectation from the Victorian Government that guests under 16-years-old hold some form of identification at all times, they may be asked to prove who they are upon entry into the venue. This must include name and birthday, examples include a school ID or library card as well other official forms of identification.

We will endeavour to provide any further updates or information relevant to each State or Local Government on this page, but if you have any further questions about our policy or wish to provide feedback, we suggest guests get in touch via [email protected]
