FAQS

  1. Can I cross the border from Victoria to New South Wales?

No, New South Wales has temporarily closed its border with Victoria. If you are visiting Echuca from Victoria, you will not be able to cross into Moama or NSW. As the Murray River is part of NSW, you will not be able to enter the waters in any way, be it to swim, ski, boat, fish, or otherwise. However we invite you to discover some of our other waterways, such as the Campaspe River, Goulburn River, Waranga Basin, Greens Lake and Lake Cooper. 

Please see the NSW Government website for current information regarding border restrictions. 

  1. I live in New South Wales, can I holiday in Moama?

New South Wales residents are permitted to travel anywhere within NSW. If NSW residents enter Victoria they will not be permitted to return without a permit and quarantine may be required. Check the NSW Government Coronavirus page for up to date information.
