Christmas Tour

Tour Travel Options

Whilst each tour will have its own specific travel information, and if you have something else in mind (like a group pick up) or have any questions please get in contact with us as anything is possible, but in general we have three standard travel options.

  • Drive yourself to Barham, NSWIf you wish to arrive by car you can access your room at the Barham Riverland Motel any time after 2pm of the arrival day. Your car can be parked outside your room. Departure by 9.30am on the departure day.
  • NSW Residents: Deniliquin Pick-Up / Drop-OffUse your free travel passes (or pay for First Class) to book a return ticket to Deniliquin on the Sydney to Melbourne XPT. Get on the XPT from your applicable station, and at Wagga Wagga station your luggage will be transferred to a Country Link coach to continue your journey to Deniliquin. We will pick you up at Deniliquin and transfer you to the Barham Riverland Motel - this final transfer is included in the tour cost. On return this works pretty well the same way in reverse. Dependant on the departure day, the country link coach will take you to either Wagga Wagga or Albury to transfer you onto the XPT - this would be advised when you book your return ticket. NOTE: One standard size suitcase per person, the maximum weight is 20kgs. Overweight luggage may be refused by the driver.
  • VIC Residents: Kerang Train Station Pick-Up / Barham Coach Stop Drop-OffUse your free travel pass, or pay for first class and jump aboard the Melbourne to Swan Hill line departing Southern Cross Station to Bendigo, then transfer to a coach to Kerang Station where you will be met by our driver to be taken to Barham Riverland Motel  - this final transfer is included in the tour cost. Public transport from Melbourne to Kerang occurs multiple times per day, however we only pick up once. This specific time will be noted in your tour itinerary. Please ensure you are booked on the correct route as advised in that itinerary. If you select a time other than that noted this must be pre organised and there is a fee of $50 per person. On the departure day our driver will take you to the Barham Coach Stop to catch the coach direct to Southern Cross Station or your applicable stop along the way. NOTE: One standard size suitcase per person, the maximum weight is 20kgs. Overweight luggage may be refused by the driver.
  • Other OptionsTravelling from somewhere else? Find public transport timetables confusing? Would you like a group pick-up? Please get in touch as we will endeavour to help in any way possible. In some cases we can even book the ticket on your behalf! Give us a call or email so we can have a chat about the options.

Ammendments by Murray Magic Tours

Whilst every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of information, MMT takes no responsibility for any itinerary changes we determine acting reasonably that are required for safety reasons or in situations where changes are required due to matters outside of our control. You acknowledge MMT's right to make amendments in these circumstances. While we will reasonably endeavor to supply comparable arrangements, you agree that you will not be entitled to any cost reduction, refund, or other compensation in these situations.

Minimum Numbers

All tours are subject to minimum numbers. If MMT cancels a tour due to lack of numbers, you will have the option to receive a full refund or to transfer to alternative tour. If the cost of the alternative tour is less expensive than the original tour then we will refund you the difference, and if the alternative tour is more expensive then you agree to pay the difference. We endeavor to have this decision made no less than 45 days before departure.
