    Covid-19 Information

    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic our operations have been severely impacted. So here’s some info on how we are going about all this.

    We are OPEN for business and looking forward to welcoming you here with us :-).
    We are working closely with the Department of Health. Hence you can be assured that we are going the extra mile to keep our staff, current and future guests safe.

    Here's what YOU can do to support us in our efforts:

    • Ensure you are up to date and comply with the current rules and restrictions for the NT and the Alice Springs area. See https://coronavirus.nt.gov.au for more detailed and up to date information.
