RASCAL and Covid-19 - Summer booking arrangements

As the NSW Covid-19 response evolves, the Club has sought to keep the Lodge open for as long as possible in line with the Covid-19 requirements. With the coming of Summer, the Lodge will be available for block bookings of any three or more nights.

Bookings will still be made only by the Office Manager and she will arrange for professional cleaning following each stay. The cost is $400 per night. These arrangements apply from 1 October to end February 2021.


All bookings will be displayed on the Room Availability page of the website. As bookings are being manually added by our Office Manager, there will be a delay between a booking being allocated and it appearing on the booking calendar. A Waiver of Liability for all Lodge users is here.


We have a COVID-19 management plan in place to support use of the lodge. This plan draws on the guidelines around Holiday Homes and Holiday Rentals.  

COVID-19 is a rapidly evolving situation and while everyone is working to return to normal as quickly as possible there are many situations which are outside of our control. The focus of the committee has been to allow our members and their guests to be able to use the lodge and enjoy some time in the Jindabyne area without exposing the club, its officers, our members and their guests, or the broader community to unnecessary risk. While COVID-19 remains under control in NSW and the Snowy Mountain region, this should be able to occur under the regime that we have proposed, however should this be taken out of our hands by a tightening of the control measures by the NSW Government we will have to perform a further review.

Finally - thank you all for your patience. We are swimming in uncharted waters at the moment. It would be fair to say that the standard RASCAL operating model simply could not support safe operation of the lodge under the current conditions. We will continue to work to lift restrictions as we can and will keep you all up to date as we can improve your access to the lodge and return to a more normal operating model.

Lodge Covid-19 cleaning requires that members MUST NOT arrive before 4pm on the first date and MUST vacate the Lodge before 10am on the day of departure.  This is important.


Please contact the our Office Manager (Angela Cornell) or the President (Colin McLean - 0414 146448) if you have any questions about this.
