COVID-19 Update

Under the Orange Traffic Light alert level, the Timaru District Council has made this facility a non-Vaccine Pass Site as it is not staffed by Council team members. This means the Council will not enforce vaccination pass entry requirements.

However, the person booking this facility (the Hirer) can determine if the activity/event they are holding requires a vaccine pass upon entry.

If the hirer chooses not to make a My Vaccine Pass a requirement, they must comply with density limits, PPE and social distancing. Currently, for non-vaccine pass sites, the density limit is strictly 25 persons with 1-metre social distancing.

If the hirer chooses to make the My Vaccine Pass a requirement, a vaccine pass will be required upon entry. Currently, for vaccine pass sites, the density limit is strictly 100 persons with 1-metre social distancing. The hirer must monitor the vaccine pass status of all present at the event.

It is incumbent upon the hirer to observe and comply with all government regulations around COVID-19 protection.


The Geraldine Pavilion Lounge is a beautiful upstairs facility with kitchen, small bar and lounge that holds 111 people with views over sportsgrounds to the north and south. 18th or 21st birthdays strictly prohibited.
