All new measures are in accordance with the government mandated requirements. While we are excited to welcome you back, if you are unwell, please stay home. You may be denied entry if you are showing visible signs of COVID-19 or flu-like symptoms.


If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19, in close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19, or in a named COVID-19 Hot Spot in the last 14 days; are awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test; or any Federal State or Territorial government has issued restrictions or reasons for leaving your home which do not permit you to visit The Star Gold Coast, or directions to quarantine or self-isolate which are currently applicable to you, we require you to defer your visit.


Physical Distancing

We’ve implemented measures to help maintain safe physical distance at all times. 

For social distancing, we’ve made some changes to the way you play. All gaming machines and select table games will be available but social distancing must apply. Seating at table games will be limited and back betting will not be permitted. Please also be aware that at peak times, access to certain areas may be restricted due to capacity guidelines.
