Due to the recent jump in Coronavirus cases in Victoria, boating restrictions on the Murray River apply. NSW waters are considered to commence from the high water mark situated on the Victorian side of the Murray River.
People currently in Victoria who intend to enter NSW waters using a vessel on the Murray River must have a permit.
This requirement applies to:
• each person on board a vessel entering NSW waters from Victoria
• all recreational and commercial vessels, including houseboats.
NSW Police are patrolling the area and enforcing border entry requirements, similar to road travel into NSW. A person found breaching the Public Health (COVID-19 Border Control) Order 2020 faces an $11,000 fine and six months in prison. More information about border restrictions can be found here.
You can apply for a border entry permit via Service NSW.
People currently in NSW may continue to boat on the Murray River while staying within NSW waters. Transport for NSW encourages boaters to keep safety top-of-mind, including wearing a lifejacket, carrying the required safety equipment, regularly checking weather forecasts and being aware of the risks associated with cold water.
We urge you to be aware of the increased health risk in Victoria, so please take extra care and be vigilant about physical distancing, minimising contact with others and maintaining good hygiene to slow the spread of Coronavirus.
For the latest information on coronavirus and current restrictions, members of the community are encouraged to check the NSW Government website (http://nsw.gov.au) for regular updates. For a list of frequently asked questions we encourage you and your customers to go to the COVID-19 boating update.
Transport for NSW remains focused on keeping you and the customer safe as a key priority.
