What’s Included In Our Tailored Luxury Houseboat Holidays?

There’s something special about houseboat holidays. They are a bit like camping, but you can escape to the great outdoors without having to pack a million and one things! Houseboats have all the creature comforts of home including hot showers, a spa, full kitchen and cosy beds.

The best part, you don’t have to spend all your time in one spot. You can cruise the river daily and find a new location each night. One night you’ll be admiring the sunset glow on the spectacular cliffs and another night you might be serenaded by a chorus of kookaburras perched high in the canopy of the red gum forest. They are a great way to discover the beauty of the Murray River and create memories that last a lifetime.

Luxury Houseboat Holidays

Our new experience, Murray River Escapes, are tailored houseboat holidays perfect for private groups ranging from 4 to 12 people. Create magical memories with your family and friends as you cruise the river and relax while our guide moors your luxury houseboat in spectacular surrounds.

Our 4, 5 or 6 day itineraries have been designed especially for you to enjoy a new adventure each day when our guides collect you from the houseboat and take you to experience the best of our regional food, wine,
and nature.

Murray River Escapes seamlessly combines houseboat accommodation with guided river activities, a style of houseboat holiday that  you’ll only find at Murray River Trails.
