Hi everyone,
I had to make a decision on Lightning Ridge Tour so after much internal debate as I could only book one lot of dates, I have decided to postpone Lightning Ridge till September 26th departure, so it will definitely run, just departing a couple of months later 😊
I think it’s better to postpone rather than cancel at the last moment.

Another decision I have made, as soon as we are able to tour again, I will be scheduling a trip to Kangaroo Island, to support our long time suppliers over there, after they have taken a double hit!
It is our longest running tour and we always have an amazing time 😊 I can put this tour together very quickly and it will run inbetween other already scheduled tours. So if you would like to register your interest for this one - 5 day tour please do so. It will include all the favourites Honey Farm, Eucalyptus Farm, Cape Willoughby Lighthouse, Raptor Domain, Admirals Arch - Sealion colony plus more, we will return to the Island Motel which is under new management and has had some TLC. We have a great time on the Island and they certainly need the support.
Take care everyone please stay at home so we can get over this Virus outbreak and get the wheels turning again.
Feel free to ring me anytime and much love to you all ❤️❤️

September 26th Lightning Ridge will depart please share this Information around as I have to ring approx 30 guests who have booked. Ps we will take 36 max

No not yet Betty Cavenett, in fact we intend running NT tour before Murray Princess hopefully it will be fine by then. Lightning Ridge was scheduled for May so I thought it best to defer it till September xx

Hi Claire Hoffrichter Absolutely😊 I can’t wait to get back on the road but taking this time to organise the home as we haven’t really been home for about 6 years and when I was here, I was always in the office so I have an awful lot to keep me occupied!

Hope you are all well Kim . Sending love to you and your family. Clarice. Xoxo

I’d be interested. Thx kym

Thanks for update Kim-will think about it. Need something after recent news.

What's estimated cost KI trip😎

Sounds like a plan, ☺️ we know you like to look after everyone. 💜

At this stage High Country - Bright Tour will not go ahead due to Victoria declaring a State of emergency which closes Motels, Galleries etc . Hopefully next tour Lightning Ridge (should be warm and to a Regional area and no big crowds or gatherings) will run that is our aim.
In future We ask that in the interest of our guests health the following must be implemented - All guests must have had the Flu vaccination and must not have a cold and be in good health, if not then your tour price can be transferred to another tour.
Our sanitisation procedures are in place and are good. A hand sanitiser is installed in the stair well as you enter, hospital grade wipes are used each time you get off between cruises, tours etc
We will not be in big crowds and our tours will be private on all Winter Tours onwards.
Currently there are 32 cases in SA and if we all follow guidelines and take extra care, there is no reason to stop touring in regional areas. In fact I look forward to our Winter getaways.

##Update as Victoria has called a State of Emergency we cannot go there, so please do not pay any balances of tour. Deposits can be transferred to any other tour this would be appreciated however if you would like your deposit refunded message me your name and bsb number and account number thanks for your understanding 💕
Should that change in the next 3 weeks, we can go however I feel that won’t happen, but never say never. This is such a fast changing scenario let’s hope it disappears as fast as it started.
We still intend for our Winter Getaways to continue stay tuned 😘
David and I shall keep our selves busy at home with working on the home, a productive enforced break with some fishing I think xx
Stay tuned

After the Government press conference just before, if their advice remains the same, we WILL run High Country Tour at the end of April, our new sanitisation practices should be fine and the Winter Escape Tours WILL definitiv run, as the Virus does not like warmer temperatures so we shall leave Winter behind us 😊 ...

To all our lovely guests ❤️
David and I have made the decision that our guests health will always be first and foremost and it’s pretty easy to make the decision that Melbourne Flower Show Tour will be cancelled.
Mass gatherings over 500 are not recommended we will follow that guideline.
Full refund or transfer funds to another upcoming tour.
I would appreciate it, if no one contacts me this weekend as we are busy with a ship and after a busy week with a lot of stress, we need Sunday to recuperate.
Just for info High Country has approx 8-10 seats left
Lightning Ridge and Winter Xmas on the Murray the same, plenty of availability on the major Winter Tours Northern Territory and Tropical Qld, so if you want to transfer make the decision quickly as Tours are filling steadily😊
Thanks for your understanding xx
If you would like a refund please message me your BSB account number and name and it will be done next week.
Much love to you all and wash your hands and stay safe ❤️❤️

Hi everyone, just to let you all know, each coach will now have a hand sanitiser dispenser mounted in the stairwell, so as you board, you can sanitise.
Also after groups disembark the coaches will be sprayed with Glen 20 and anywhere where hands touch will be wiped with disinfectant wipes.
Prevention of any germs is the best cure!
We will be heading for the sun from May onwards which will avoid the cold and flu season here, so why not join us - Lightning Ridge, Journey around NT or Tropical Qld all with Temps above 26 degrees which certain viruses do not like!
We look forward to our travels this year and can’t wait to kick off at the end of March, we will definitely have many amazing experiences this year!
