If you are successful in the ballot, you will be notified via email and SMS on the date of the draw, Wednesday 21 February 2024. 

No, there will not be a second chance draw due to the smaller number of vouchers available in this round.  

In some instances, tourism providers will require a deposit to confirm your booking. The $750 voucher cannot be used as currency for the deposit, and the deposit will need to be paid directly to the tourism provider.

Some tourism operators will have a ‘from’ price to indicate the starting price for their experience, accommodation, houseboat or guided tour. This is because prices can vary based on factors such as peak and off-peak pricing, seasonality and availability.

We recommend reviewing all tourism operator information and pricing provided to ensure the experience, accommodation, houseboat or guided tour is what you’re looking for and wanting to book in.

If you were successful in the ballot and received a successful email and/or SMS on 21 February 2024, you are able to book your travel during the booking period of 21 February 2024 – 27 March 2024, for travel between 22 February 2024 – 30 June 2024. If you do not book your travel during the booking period, your voucher will expire. 

Yes, it is possible to redeem multiple vouchers on the one booking provided that the vouchers are redeemed within the same booking period and the operator’s Terms and Conditions allow for this. 

For example, if two people win a $750 voucher (with a minimum $1500 spend) and are willing to travel together on a houseboat, then each person would need to incur a minimum spend of $1500 each, being $3000 in total, to redeem the two vouchers on the one booking.   

The ballot is designed to accept only one entry per person, per voucher round.  

If you entered the ballot for round two which ran in June 2023, you can also enter the ballot for round three in February 2024 as it is a separate ballot.   

While there is an excellent range of accommodation, experiences, houseboats and guided tours available in each voucher category, the following redemption conditions apply:

The travel period runs from Thursday 22 February 2024 to Sunday 30 June 2024 inclusive (bookable seven days per week, including Saturday and Sunday, and public holidays). 

It is at the full discretion of the operator to allow eligible vouchers to be redeemed on a pre-existing booking.   

Where allowed by the operator, the voucher can only be redeemed if the pre-existing booking was made with an operator registered in the River Revival Voucher program and the product is available with the specific voucher type.
