Venue 114 has incorporated additional protocols and guidelines in order to operate Council owned facilities during the COVID-19 pandemic. These protocols will be updated accordingly as directed by Queensland Government and are approved by Sunshine Coast Council.

Sunshine Coast Council and Venue 114’s number one priority is maintaining the safety of council employees, hirers and the community whilst preventing further spread of COVID-19.

Hirers of Venue 114 should recognise it is their responsibility to ensure that they adhere to the protocols set out in this document and that any additional requirements for their specific activity are met as detailed in the QLD Public Health Direction. For state-wide information and advice about COVID-19, including the latest roadmap to easing restrictions, visit the Queensland Government’s Unite & Recover website.

On arrival to Venue 114 event organisers and attendees will ensure the following protocols are met:

Access requirements
  • You don’t have any symptoms associated with COVID-19 (e.g. fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, sneezing/runny nose or loss of sense of smell)

  • You haven’t been in contact with any known or suspected cases of COVID-19 in the past 14 days

Physical distancing and gatherings numbers

Social and physical distancing is one way to slow the spread of COVID-19. Queensland Health advice is to keep a distance of 1.5 m from others where possible as an effective measure and is to be observed.

Venue 114 is operating in compliance with the COVID Safe Checklist for Restricted Businesses. The venue occupancy is currently calculated as one person per 2 square metres; or up to 100% of seated venue capacity at ticketed events with patrons in allocated seating. Find out more about more about current Venue 114 room capacities on our website.

Where an event is outside of the scope of the COVID Safe Checklist for Restricted Businesses, for example indoor & outdoor events with patron dancing, event organisers must refer to COVID Safe Events website for further information.
