Update Thursday 11 November – Changes to accepted proof of medical exemption effective Friday 12 November at 6pm

From 6pm on Friday 12 November, the only form of COVID-19 exemption accepted at our facilities is an Australian Immunisation Register form.

Learn more about the changes in accepted proof of exemption. 


The wait is over! We are excited to confirm that indoor services will begin to return from Monday 1 November in response to the State Government’s announced further easing of restrictions on Sunday 24 October.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we finalise plans to resume indoor services. This planning has been affected by recently updated directions provided by the Chief Health Officer, requiring all onsite staff to also be fully vaccinated. We welcome this direction and the added safety it provides our staff and customers, however in order to meet this new directive for staff we will not be able to open all three Active Monash facilities until Monday 1 November. We’re looking forward to welcoming you back!


Please note - Services are subject to density limits and all staff and customers (aged 16+) are required to be fully vaccinated or provide proof of legal exception. Bookings for services are not required unless specifically stated.
