Preserving Swiss Culture and Traditions in Queensland
Our Annual Boat Cruise is taking place on Sunday February 27, exploring the crystal blue water and white sands of Moreton Bay, Straddie or Peel Island, aboard the stylish ‘Lady Brisbane.’
If you’re interested in going on the cruise, we’ll need payment by Friday 4 February.
So far we are below the numbers required to go on the cruise, so if we don’t receive enough payments by then, we might have to cancel the cruise (those having paid would be refunded).
Please note, the Lady Brisbane is following the public health directives issued by Queensland Health and will need proof of COVID-19 vaccination (double dose) upon boarding the cruise for all persons over the age of 16.
