While you are driving along the Murray River, why not try crossing at the The Spirit of Wymah, a heritage listed cable ferry built in 1946. The ferry crosses the river at Wymah in New South Wales and Granya in Victoria and is a fun alternative that enables you to experience the Murray River.
The ferry can take 3 cars and has a capacity of 30 tonnes. Caravans and camper trailers are permitted if vehicle and caravan do not exceed 17 metres. The Wymah Ferry is one of only 2 surviving ferries that cross the Murray River between NSW and Victoria, the other being Speewa Ferry, at Swan Hill.
The ferry is toll free and from September to April runs from 6:00 am to 9:00 pm and during May to August from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm, except on the first Wednesday of every month when it is closed between 9:00 am and 12:00 pm. Ferry closure for meal breaks: 10–10:20 am, 12:40–1 pm, 6–6:30 pm.
For up to date information on the operation of the Wymah Ferry please call T: 02 6020 2038.
