We understand the enforced restrictions of mass gatherings has caused a significant impact right across the industry. Council will continue to work hard to postpone rather than cancel events where possible to ensure visitor events that have been secured to the region happen at a later date and will provide more details on other upcoming major events as it becomes available.  We are continuing to field enquiries in relation to new events which will be imperative to assist with recovery as mandates on gatherings are lifted.
