Welcome to Australian Hostels Association, WA

Phase 3 of WA's roadmap to commence on 6 June 2020

Premier Mark McGowan has announced that from Saturday 6 June 2020, WA will enter phase 3 of WA’s four-phase roadmap.


This is a critical milestone for WA’s hospitality industry and will result in many hospitality venues re-opening their doors and significantly lifting their patron capacity.


Please find below details of the phase three restrictions, including a set of Frequently Asked Questions that should address the majority of questions you might have. We continue to liaise with the State Government on a few outstanding details regarding the restrictions – where you have a specific query, we kindly ask that you please send an email to Mike Andrew at membership@ahawa.asn.au.


Phase 3 restrictions

  • The 4 square metre rule is revised to 2 square metres per person for all WA venues.
  • You are allowed up to 100 people per single undivided space (indoor or outdoor)
  • A maximum of 300 people in total per venue over multiple spaces (This is known as the 100/300 rule)
  • Licensed premises may operate with seated service only
  • Alcohol may be served without a meal at licensed premises, but patrons must be seated
  • You must complete or update a COVID Safety Plan and having it available for inspection upon request by an authorised officer, and display a COVID Safety Plan Certificate in a prominent location visible to patrons
  • All hospitality staff must also complete an online hygiene training course before they return to work
