The Victorian Government has announced that Victoria will move forward in opening up and more restrictions will fall away. Regional Victoria and metropolitan Melbourne will be subject to the same state-wide settings under Phase C of the Roadmap: Delivering the National Plan from 6.00pm on Friday, 29 October.

The new settings include eased density and capacity limits, if workers and customers are fully vaccinated.

If workers and customers are not fully vaccinated with two doses, or venues do not check vaccination status, premises may be forced to close, or operate with reduced capacity limits.

Masks will remain mandatory indoors but are no longer required outdoors. It is highly recommended Victorians continue to wear a mask outdoors where they cannot physically distance.

The eased restrictions means the Wangaratta Sports and Aquatic Centre can open with capped numbers as follows:

  • Indoor pool area: 150 people (from 30)
  • Outdoor pool area: 150 people (from 50)
  • Dry facilities area: 150 people (from 30)

Visit WSAC website or Facebook for full details.

In addition, the following Council facilities are now open with the latest restrictions in place:

  • Customer Service Counter and Planning and Building Counter at the Wangaratta Government Centre
  • Wangaratta Visitor Information Centre
  • Wangaratta Art Gallery
  • Wangaratta Library - Click & Collect will also continue
  • Wangaratta Children’s Services Centre 
  • Community halls and sporting grounds 
  • Skate parks and playgrounds
  • Parking meters 
  • Our compliance team will work as normal (including animal collections)

Wangaratta Performing Arts and Convention Centre

The Box Office will remain closed for visitors at this time. Ticket holders of postponed and cancelled shows will be contacted directly. For performance and conference enquiries, please email or phone 03 5722 8105. Visit WPACC website for details.

Density restrictions are in place

Each of our facilities is impacted differently by the density limits, so we recommend that if you are planning to visit the facility, please contact them directly or check their Facebook / website for further details.

Anyone entering a Rural City of Wangaratta facility must sign in, wear a mask when indoors and carry a mask with them at all times.

We thank you for your patience during this time.

Proof of vaccination is required to enter a variety of retail and community facilities, including Council operated venues. More information on how to access proof of vaccination can be found at Services Victoria.
