Changes to NSW Travel Zones – 12 July 2021

The Victorian Acting Chief Health Officer has declared that all of New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory will become a red zone under Victoria’s travel permit system at 11:59pm Sunday 11 July.

If you live in the NSW cross-border area, you can enter Victoria without a permit but you must travel with proof of address. Conditions apply. You cannot enter if you have been to a red zone outside of the cross-border area, or if you have COVID-19, any symptoms, or have been defined as a close contact by a state health authority.

If you are entering Victoria as a NSW cross-border community resident, stay within the Victorian cross-border area at all times. If you are entering NSW as a Victorian cross-border community resident, stay within the NSW cross-border area.  If you travel beyond this area, a red zone permit will be required for re-entry into Victoria.

News Update 9am Friday 2 July

Changes to NSW Travel Zones – 2 July 2021

 

Current green zone Local Government Areas in NSW (all located within the cross-border community) will become orange zones effective as of 6:00am on 2 July, and the ‘border bubble’ will remain in effect.

 

Advice for cross-border community members

To cross the border without a permit, cross-border community members just need to carry proof of address (such as a driver’s license).

Some conditions apply - https://www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/information-cross-border-communities#advice-for-cross-border-community-members

 

Advice for people who do not live in the cross-border community

If you don’t live in the cross-border community, orange zones on the border are the same as any other orange zone in Australia, and you need to obtain an orange zone permit to re-enter Victoria (or a red zone permit if you have been in a red zone).

If you’re an orange zone permit holder, you need to isolate upon arrival, get tested within 72 hours, and stay isolated until you receive a negative result. You don’t need to immediately visit the first testing centre along the road – you have 72 hours to get tested.

News Update 10 June 2021

Our long-serving Human Resources Manager Maria Visser (Russo) is taking up a position closer to home. She will be greatly missed by the staff, members and community. Here’s a few words from ClubMulwala CEO Alan Rowe ..
Our loss is the Commercial Club’s gain.
Maria is one of the most versatile and adaptable employees I have ever had the pleasure of working with.
She has been an unbelievably strong team member who continually puts the needs of staff before herself.
HR is truly a thankless but incredibly important position to any business and Maria has performed her role with professionalism and care.
The way Maria has conducted herself over the last 6 ½ years in my time and from what I hear before that, is truly a credit to her. The way Maria goes about her job, her commitment and application to her position is quite frankly second to none.
On behalf of our 125 strong team here at ClubMulwala, I would like to wish Maria and Charl all the very best and they should be extremely excited for the next chapter of their lives together.
After 28 years of commitment and sacrifice to ClubMulwala, let’s hope the next challenge will be as refreshing and enjoyable.
THANKYOU Maria for absolutely everything
Good luck and best wishes
Everyone at ClubMulwala

Mulwala Bridge Works - Transport for NSW

Published 17 February 2021

Transport for NSW is starting work on a substantial maintenance project on Mulwala Bridge. Work includes replacing a vertical steel strut and upgrading the existing pedestrian crossing.

To minimise impacts to motorists, we will be carrying out the first stage at night between 9pm and 6am from Monday to Thursday, from Monday 1 March, with one lane remaining open to traffic at all times.

We will keep the community updated as work progresses. This essential maintenance is expected to take about nine months to complete, weather and border circumstances permitting.

We acknowledge border communities have been put under additional strain over the last 12 months due to Coronavirus, border closures and restrictions. The community’s wellbeing is important to us, so we have planned a work program to limit impacts as much as possible. We will mostly be working at night and work will stop during Easter and the April school holidays to allow full access to holiday makers and travelling families.

A website has been set up with details of the project can be found here https://www.rms.nsw.gov.au/projects/mulwala-bridge-maintenance/index.html

Travel restrictions and the Border Bubble

Published 12 January 2021

The following information has been collated from official State Government sites.  Please refer to the links included for further detail.

Link: https://www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/victorian-travel-permit-system

Summary

Victoria is establishing a permit system for all domestic travel into Victoria.

From 5:59pm on 11 January, you will need to apply for a permit to enter Victoria from anywhere in Australia. 

Link: Apply online for a permit.

The permit system is based on a traffic light system which allows for areas across Australia to be designated as green, orange or red according to their risk.

Mulwala is in an orange zone.  However the Border Bubble still applies (see below)

The permit system is for both travellers to Victoria and residents of Victoria returning home from interstate travel.

I am entering Victoria from an ‘orange zone’. Can I get a permit?

Yes, so long as you have not travelled to a red zone within the last 14 days. You will be granted a travel permit to enter Victoria.  You will need to get a COVID-19 test within 72 hours of arrival and self-isolate before and after your test, until you get a negative test result.

Link: https://www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/victorian-travel-permit-system-faqs

Border Communities / The ‘Border Bubble

Those living in our border communities will continue to be able to access the ‘border bubble’– using their driver’s license to prove their residential address. If you live in one of the border communities you do not need to apply for a permit.  List of Border Bubble communities here: https://www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/information-cross-border-communities

I live in a Victorian border community and have travelled into a New South Wales border community. Do I need to get tested or quarantine when I return?

No. As a Victorian border community resident you do not need to get tested or quarantine when you return to Victoria if you have only travelled within New South Wales border communities. 

You should, however, monitor for symptoms for coronavirus (COVID-19). If you have any symptoms, get tested and stay at home until you get a negative test result. You should also regularly check the list of exposure sites online.

Travel restrictions and the Border Bubble

Published 5 January 2021

As of the 1st of January 2021, the border between Victoria and NSW is closed.

However a "Border Bubble" is in place which enables residents of towns along the NSW/Victorian Border to travel across the Border and return by just showing their Driver's Licence.  (see HERE for details of the Border restrictions)

The Border Bubble is quite expansive and we hope visitors from throughout the region will continue to support the towns affected by the Border shutdown.  Furthermore, it is a great opportunity for visitors to come to Mulwala as many accommodation venues now have vacancies.

So to our Border residents - come stay/dine/play/relax with us!

And to our visitors currently restricted from coming to sunny Mulwala, we hope circumstances change soon and we will see you again in the near future.

Regards

Management & Staff

ClubMulwala
