PUBLIC HEALTH AND SAFETY IS OUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY AT THE OUTBACKFOOD WINE & MUSIC FESTIVAL 2021
Our team have been working alongside Queensland Health to ensure that the festival is delivered in line with all COVID Safe requirements and is operating under a COVID-Safe Event Plan. Festival entry is only by the purchase of an online ticket.
To protect our festival patrons, we have implemented the following measures with your safety in mind:
Increased safety protocols onsite including crowd management strategies and contact-tracing of all event attendees via a ticketing strategy
Increased on-ground hygiene including regular and thorough cleaning schedules of cleaning staff ensuring all festival surfaces are disinfected, as well as the provision of hygiene stations for patrons to use
To protect yourself and those also enjoying the festival around you, please ensure you:
Practice social distancing at all times by keeping 1.5m away from others (those not in your immediate group)
Cover your coughs and sneezes
Regularly wash your hands
If you are joining us at this year's festival, please ensure you observe and follow the guidelines set out by Queensland Health and do not attend if you:
