Interaction with guests
Upon arrival at the marina we will welcome you on board and then conduct a session to show you how to operate all the workings of the houseboat (we can even teach you how to tie knots for when you moor overnight)
After this, our qualified instructors teach you to drive the houseboat and once you are comfortable with your ability, you head off on your wonderful journey of discovery!
We are contactable by mobile phone if you have a question while underway, and of course will be at the marina to welcome you back again and hear all about your holiday.

Reviewed 3 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We travelled on the houseboat ADVENTURER, as a family group.
This was a large boat but had a wonderful cosy feel to it.
I have never been on it before, but it felt like a special home........

A lot of thought has gone in to this boat's function. Well appointed with plenty of the right kind of fixtures and furniture to be comfortable. A satellite TV, music player where we plugged in our own choice of music. A BBQ, full stove for cooking a baked dinner or making muffins, and a microwave for a quick meal. Plenty of kitchen items to assist cooking and eating; including plenty of glasses etc. Absolutely everything we needed. Five bedrooms, one especially set up for younger people to watch TV etc. A double kayak if you want to meander on the Murray, and we even arranged to hire some fishing rods from the owner, as we had travelled from interstate.

The owner and her staff were all fantastic and answered all our questions and assisted us with all our needs.

How to get there
We are located just 90 minutes from Adelaide and 2 hours from Adelaide Airport at 9131 Sturt Highway Blanchetown. We are the only houseboat hire business when you reach the Murray River at Blanchetown and easily accessed! Our secluded and private marina is nestled below ancient limestone cliffs and we have tons of room to park your car ( our riverbank is also under 24 hour CCTV surveillance for your peace of mind!)

Travelling to Blanchetown from the airport is even easier now via the Northern Express Way, which takes you all the way to Gawler where you join the Sturt Highway.
We are ONLY 40 minutes from the world famous Barossa Valley - the perfect spot to stop and enjoy lunch and a wine tasting on your way to Blanchetown.
