Coronavirus (COVID-19) update 9 July 2020

Government issued travel restrictions, border closures and social distancing continues to affect recreational travel although these are starting to ease. 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. There may be some delays with re-booking onto new dates that are unable to be re-booked for 2020 while our suppliers finalise their 2021 touring programs and implement their COVID Safe plans. We request your patience and ask that you wait to be contacted with options once further details are advised to us. For guests who have paid deposits for travel from August 2020, please contact prior to making your final payment as some tours are still affected by border closures.

If you could assist us by emailing rather than phoning to discuss your bookings, it would be appreciated as our office hours will be reduced while this health crisis continues. Our temporary office hours are Monday to Thursday 9am – 3pm. Please continue to monitor this website for updates.
