Events on the Day

The Bundanoon Highland Gathering Committee is deeply conscious of its responsibilities in the current Covid-19 pandemic situation.

Sadly, our planned 2019 and 2020 events were deferred due to our priority concern being for public health and safety.

“The NSW Government has foreshadowed Public Health Orders to take effect from 1 December 2021 that will allow us to host next year’s Brigadoon with a balance between community responsibilities and personal freedoms.

The proposed Orders will repeal any restrictions against non-vaccinated attendees and the requirement for face masks to be worn outdoors.

It is anticipated that perhaps a QR check-in will continue to be required for contact tracing purposes.

“These Orders may well change over the next six months. The Bundanoon Highland Gathering Committee will always act in accordance with the Public Health Orders and advise all concerned as soon as possible of any necessary changes.”
