At DreamCity, we remain committed to the health and wellbeing of the public and our staff. Given the current expert advice from the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), we have made the decision to close temporarily, effective immediately. This decision has been taken in the interests of visitors, our staff, and the broader community.
DreamCity will continue to follow the advice from the DHHS and will monitor daily developments. We thank you for your support and understanding.
Patrons with existing bookings will be contacted regarding next steps. DreamCity was created as a place for children to learn and be inspired, to look to the future, to be in awe of the possibilities. This is something we will continue to do. May we all look to the future together. May we focus on the inspiring acts of kindness and grace in our community. May we look for the helpers, always.
We look forward to welcoming you back to our high-tech career activities soon and offer our best wishes during this challenging time.
