This depends on what level your region is in at the time of the event and if you want to check vaccination certificates.
If you are at Orange and you are checking vaccine certificates/passes, there are no limits on the number of people that can attend. If you choose not to check vaccine certificates, then you can allow up to 50 people to attend per gathering. However, you can have multiple groups of gatherings of each capacity limit if you meet the definition of defined spaces.

No, the capacity limit excludes any workers – just ensure they remain at least 2m away from the gathering participants. The definition of a worker is a volunteer, official, veterinarian or coach – if at the event for that specific role. However, if they cannot distance 2m at all times from competitors then they’ll need to be included in the number limits per gathering
The capacity limit includes children. Children under the age of 12 who cannot be vaccinated are treated as if they have a vaccine pass.
Spectators at an outdoor gathering could be treated as a separate gathering and the same limits apply to them if they remain more than 2 metres away from the competitors (to meet the definition of an outdoor defined space).
You can travel outside your region to participate in sport, recreation and play activities if there are no regional boundary restrictions currently in place.
An ‘Event’ is any voluntary or for-profit activity that takes place at a commercial or private indoor or outdoor premises or a publicly owned premises hired for that purpose that has controlled access, via ticketing, fee paying on premises, registration, or other practicable means of controllable entry, of customers or clients. In general, an Event is usually where the attendees are not already known to each other.
Most sport and recreation can be played under ‘Gathering’ restrictions. A gathering aims to undertake voluntary or not-for-profit sporting, recreational, social or cultural activities. A gathering includes community club activities and is held in a defined space or premise.
When we ask for Covid Vaccine Certificates, we can only verify that the member has one and the expiry date, then we must delete the email detailing the CVC.
Children, once they turn 12 years of age, have up to three months (from the day of their 12th birthday) to be fully vaccinated and produce a CVC.
If you have a hospitality venue, you can open at the Red setting. If you use MVP, the number of people you can have in your hospitality venue will depend, but all people in the venue must be able to be 1 metre distanced from each other. They must be seated and separated to eat or drink. If you don’t use MVP, then you can only serve customers in a contactless way. A separate QR code for scanning in is required.
As the property owner it is totally up to you what protocols you put in place under CPF, as long as they fit without the legal requirements for gatherings and defined spaces. At the very least you will need to adhere to the government guidelines around gathering limits, depending on what level your region is.
