We are Back - Cruises Operating as scheduled

The Victorian Government has announced changes to restriction from 11.59 pm Tuesday 27th July.

The good news is that our cruises can proceed following the guidelines under Outdoor Fixed Seating, Outdoor Non-Seated, and Accommodation Guidelines.

For guests residing in NSW, your travel plans are affected by the closure as you are not able to enter Victoria. We will be in contact with you directly regarding your cruise within 14 days of departure.

Whilst the Border remains closed all onshore tours will depart from the Victorian side of the river at Toorumbarry Weir. For our 4-night cruise guests, your Restdown Winery tour has been replaced with our tour to the Flying Boat Museum and Swan Hill Pioneer Settlement. 

Guests cruising along the river aboard PS Emmylou are not classified as leaving Victoria for the purpose of requiring a re-entry permit.

Whilst the current restrictions are a challenge for everyone our team is committed to ensuring your river cruise experience with us is a memorable one and thank you for your ongoing support.
