COVID-19 Important Information

To ensure our visitors, volunteers, and staff are safe while at Bundanon, we have put in place the following measures in keeping with NSW Government guidelines.

Online bookings for timed entry tickets.
This will provide access to the Homestead and Arthur Boyd’s studio. On booking you will need to provide your name and contact details to support contact tracing should the need arise. We suggested you download the COVIDSafe app.

Please arrive for your booked time and check in at our shop on arrival.

If you arrive without a booking, we will endeavour to fit you in to the next available entry time. We recommend arriving early to avoid disappointment and long wait times. We will need to record your name and contact details for contact tracing.

Before entering the Homestead, on the spacious front lawn with ample room for social distancing, our knowledgeable guides will provide a brief introduction. Up to ten visitors will be allowed into the Homestead at a time, with staggered entry, and two visitors will be permitted into Arthur Boyd’s studio at a time. Staff will monitor the spaces.

Please do not visit Bundanon if you’re unwell, have experienced cold or flu symptoms in the last 14 days, or have returned from overseas in the last 14 days.

The gardens and grounds will be open for everyone to enjoy throughout the day. Our walks allow you to experience the iconic landscape of the Bundanon property. Pick up a walks brochure from the shop on arrival.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, there will be no tea and coffee facilities so please bring your own – bring a picnic to enjoy in the beautiful grounds.
