Last Update: 18 July 2022 
(Recent changes highlighted)

Since 8 July there have been a small number of positive cases in the lodge, or within 2 days of leaving the lodge.
The lodge was closed for 4 hours on Sunday 17 July to provide a circuit breaker between departing and arriving guests.
In accordance with health advice, we are now strongly recommending that masks be worn in common areas unless you are eating or drinking.

Don't forget to bring masks and enough RAT kits to test everyone in your group 5 days out of 7 if you become a close contact.
Tell the lodge manager immediately if you test positive or have symptoms.

Lodge operation will be close to normal, unless you are a close contact or someone in the lodge tests positive. 

You need to fill out the declaration and waiver form in  the 72 hours before arrival at the lodge. It should be emailed to the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. If you bring COVID into the lodge it could affect everyone's holiday. To reduce the chance of this, we encourage everyone to test before coming. We insist on this if you are a close contact or symptomatic. The Lodge Manager may require you to test during your stay. If you have recovered from COVID-19 in the preceding 4 weeks you are exempt from testing. 

Please don't entertain visitors who are close contacts.

Unfortunately anyone testing positive will need to check out of the lodge. Everyone staying in the lodge at the time will become a close contact. If we act promptly we hope to be able to remain open.

The most important Covid Safe rules in the lodge are:

  • Don't come if you have tested positive or have not recovered from COVID.
  • If you are a close contact or have symptoms, test on the day of arrival, prior to coming to the lodge. Do not try to enter the lodge if you are positive.
  • Bring enough RAT kits to test everyone in your party daily (5 days out of 7) if required.
  • Bring masks. When restrictions require it, wear them in the lodge.
  • If you do test positive, immediately isolate in your room.
  • Tell the Lodge Manager if you are a close contact, or have symptoms, or test positive.


The most up-to-date information will be published here. Be sure to check for the latest information. Our full COVID Safe Plan is a rather bulky document that includes much material of little interest to most members and guests. A summary of our COVID Safe Plan more succinctly informs members and guests about how the lodge will operate. The white/winter season version of these documents are now available, reflecting latest clarifications and advice.    

Keep any eye on the Falls Creek resort website for up to date information about the resort.
