As a family owned and operated business, the health and well-being of our guests and staff is Out of the Ordinary Outback group highest priority.

Covid-19 is a respiratory illness caused by a new virus. In response to this current pandemic, we continue to follow the latest advice and recommendations from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Australian Government.

The virus can spread from person to person, but good hygiene can prevent infection.

In response, all our staff have been informed, in detail, on essential prevention measures – ranging from hygiene measures including frequent cleaning and sanitising of ‘high touch’ areas within our reception area, throughout the Resort and our Restaurant, Bar and Cafés.

We are continuously monitoring and implementing the current recommendations and guidelines of the local health authorities as they evolve, to provide the best possible service, whilst ensuring the safety of our guests.
