Summer Musters 2021/2022 – Cancelled
With the rapid increase in COVID community transmission throughout South Australia, we have had to make the unfortunate decision to cancel our upcoming Musters (Four and Five). 
 
We appreciate that this will be disappointing, however, we must consider the safety of all attendees and staff at this time. Our team have been working hard this week to find ways for the Musters to proceed, but in the end, we didn’t believe it was prudent to push on.
 
Our booking team will be in contact with families who have already made payments, to discuss refund/credit options.
 
If you have any questions, please call T: (08) 8388 5234 or email E: [email protected]
 
We expect Musters to be back again next holidays and look forward to seeing you at Wirraway again soon.
 
We apologise for any inconvenience that this short notice has caused. Thank you for your support and understanding at this time.
