Coronavirus fishing and boating update - Wednesday, 28 July 2021

From 11.59pm on Tuesday, 27 July restrictions across Victoria have eased.

There are no longer only five reasons to leave home and time and distance limits no longer apply.

Recreational fishing and boating are permitted in groups of up to 10 people and face masks must be worn whenever you leave home unless a lawful exemption applies.

Due to restrictions on intrastate travel being lifted our Golden Tag competition has resumed.

It’s essential to regularly check the list of exposure sites and get tested if you have even the mildest of symptoms.

Murray River

Under the latest Border Crossing Permit Directions, Victorians can launch a boat and travel along the Murray River without a permit provided you do not dock or set foot on the NSW side of the river.

People travelling along the Murray must ensure they prohibit or prevent any prohibited person from travelling on the Murray River with them or entering Victoria with them.
