We know that 2020 has been a challenging year for many of us. While this year we face a different Christmas to the one we’re all used to, please be assured that our commitment to the health and wellbeing of our customers, staff and retailers remains our steadfast priority.
Keeping you safe at Bathurst City Centre this Christmas
In line with this commitment, we continue to maintain a range of precautionary measures to help keep our community safe this Christmas. These include:
- A strengthened focus on disinfecting commonly touched areas
- Positioning of hand sanitiser stations at key points throughout the Centre
- Installation of signage and floor decals across parts of the Centre, reminding our community to keep 1.5 metres between themselves and others at all times
In addition to these longstanding measures, this Christmas we’re also introducing some new safety initiatives. These include Social Distancing Ambassadors located throughout the Centre, to ensure our community is adhering to social distancing directives, and extended pre-Christmas trading hours, giving you longer to shop.
How you can help
We’ll be doing all we can to keep our community safe this Christmas, but we also need your help. We ask that you continue to play your role in keeping our community safe. This means:
- Social distancing – always keep at least 1.5 metres between yourself and others
- Maintain personal hygiene by regularly washing your hands and using the sanitiser stations located throughout the Centre for your convenience
- Handle illness safely by coughing into your elbow or a tissue, and most importantly, stay at home if you’re feeling unwell.
Plan your visit this Christmas
To help you stay safe this Christmas, we strongly encourage you to plan your trip in advance and not linger unnecessarily in the Centre:
- Avoid visiting the Centre at peak times such as during the middle of the day from Thursday through to Sunday.
- Check store trading hours and individual conditions of entry in advance
We thank you for your patience and cooperation as we navigate this festive season together, and look forward to seeing you at Bathurst City Centre soon.

Keeping you safe as we navigate coronavirus together
We continue to work in close collaboration with our retailers to ensure that we are all doing our part to keep our shared environments clean and safe while keeping our team members up to date with new information and advice from the relevant authorities.
We are closely monitoring public health updates and prepared to act quickly should advice change. It goes without saying that our community’s health and wellbeing comes first and we have therefore implemented the below processes at Bathurst City Centre.
- Strengthened our already stringent cleaning processes by placing a heightened focus on sanitising high-touch points with high-grade disinfectant as well as increasing the number of cleaning rotations each day.
- Hand sanitation stations have been placed at key points throughout the centre, including our main centre entrances, for our entire community to access.
- Australian Government-issued information posters have been placed in our bathrooms, which outline crucial information on how you can help stop the spread of Covid-19. We have also rolled out public hygiene advertisements across the centre to reinforce preventative measures that each of us should adopt.
While we understand that the re-introduction of in-Centre experiences that have been greatly missed by our community is something to be excited about, we ask you to continue to play your part to keep our community safe. This means:
- Social distancing – always keep at least 1.5 metres between yourself and others.
- Exemplary personal hygiene – wash your hands regularly and use the sanitiser stations located throughout the Centre for your convenience.
- Handling illness safely – cough or sneeze into your elbow or a tissue and, most importantly, stay at home if you’re feeling unwell.
We ask for your support in making sure Bathurst City Centre continues to be a place of kindness and compassion for all our customers and staff throughout this unprecedented situation.
With all that said, we remain open for business and sincerely look forward to seeing you at Bathurst City Centre.
Things to remember when considering a visit to Bathurst City Centre
Considering a visit to Bathurst City Centre? Before you visit, we have put together a list of things you should consider, to ensure a safe and pleasant shopping experience. We all have a role to play in keeping our community safe and healthy.
BEFORE YOU RETURN TO BATHURST CITY CENTRE
PLAN YOUR VISIT
Before arriving please review the list of open retailers and individual conditions of entry located above. As restrictions have impacted all of our retailers in different ways, you may find it may take a little longer for some of your favourite stores to return to business as usual.
PLEASE WASH AND SANITISE YOUR HANDS
We are committed to maintaining exemplary hygiene measures at Bathurst City Centre. For your convenience, we have provided easy access to hand sanitisation stations throughout the Centre.
We ask that upon arrival to please sanitise your hands – even if you have only recently done so and continue to do so regularly whilst in centre.
We also ask that you continue to adhere to the 20 second advice when washing your hands before eating, after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose, or after using bathroom amenities.
PLEASE KEEP YOUR DISTANCE
Practise social distancing while visiting us in-Centre. We ask that you please take care to maintain an appropriate distance from those that are not in your immediate party. Read more.
A minimum of 1.5m distance between persons should always be maintained. We have implemented signage in certain areas throughout the Centre to assist and guide you when you are required to queue.
All retailers will have on display at their entry or in their shop window, the maximum quantity of people allowed in store at any given time. We ask for your own safety, as well as the safety of other shoppers and our staff that you acknowledge and respect this number. This may mean that you may need to queue at an appropriate social distance before entering your favourite store.
PLEASE USE PROPER COUGHING ETIQUETTE
If you are not feeling well, it is recommended for your own health, as well as the health of our community – that you stay home.
In the event that you are well and still find yourself needing to cough or sneeze when you visit, please use the inside of your elbow, handkerchief or tissue.
If using a tissue, please ensure it is disposed of appropriately and as soon as possible.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO BE KIND
We are all experiencing and coping with significant changes following the outbreak of COVID 19. For some of our stores, this may have resulted in restricted access to stock, limited trading hours or reduced services.
We are all trying our best to return to business as usual in these trying times. Please be mindful while in centre to be courteous, and kind to centre staff and other guests.
