Coronavirus (COVID-19) update 5 August 2020

Government issued travel restrictions, border closures and social distancing continues to affect recreational travel. We are working closely with our suppliers/tour operators in relation to impacted tour bookings. Date changes and credit policies will vary depending on tour operator booking conditions. For guests waiting to rebook, our suppliers are finalising their 2021 touring programs and we will be in touch once further details are advised to us. For guests who have paid deposits for travel from August 2020, please contact us prior to making your final payment as many tours are still affected by border closures.
