COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update - Vaccination Mandate as of December 20, 2021

Friday 26 November, 2021

To ensure everyone has a enjoyable and safe visit, there have been some changes at the National Wine Centre. As of December 20, 2021, the NWC will become a fully-vaccinated only venue for staff and patrons over the age of 16 years.

While this decision has not been taken lightly, it has been made in the interests of minimising risk to all stakeholders.

In setting the date of December 20, the NWC have taken into consideration the timeline required for any team member, patron, supplier or contractor to become fully vaccinated.

For any enquiries, please contact the NWC at or on 08 8313 3355.
