1-4 nights

If a hire includes Friday, Saturday or Sunday night please use weekend rates.

Hire Times

All Hires are counted on nights not days. Hires commence with boarding at 10am-2pm first day and terminates at either 10am (we are flexible if there is no booking for your last day) or 4pm on the last day (4pm return on Sundays for weekend hires and Mondays on long weekends).

We will do our best to get you underway as soon as possible depending on the circumstances of the day.

Extended times may be available at no extra cost if the houseboat is not booked for the same day. A time can be organised 48 hrs before the day, this offer is more likely to eventuate outside school holiday times.

Prices include GST (Goods and Services Tax). Prices are subject to alteration without notice. Paying your deposit locks in the price.

Motoring Hours Fee (the houseboat hire prices are based on a user pays structure)

A fee of $30 per motoring hour applies to cover cost of servicing and replacing motors, fuel prices and gas. Past hires have produced an average of 2-3 motoring hours per day.

Security Bond

Whilst on hire, we require a $1000 security bond for the duration of your holiday (credit card on the day).

Age Requirements

At least 1 person per group must be over the age of 25 and have held a full car driver's licence for 5 years.
