Just imagine.being on a houseboat custom built for two - exploring a river that is both unique and unspoilt. Relaxing with your favourite beverage at sunset while watching the eagles soar overhead or taking one last swim for the day in the Macleay River waters.

The houseboats are self-contained with a flat screen TV, DVD, MP3 player, shower/toilet, BBQ, well equipped kitchen and double bed. Wake up to gentle sounds of river life and fresh air before making your way onto the deck for a morning stretch. Each boat has an inflatable dingy making it easy to go ashore.

The river has a healthy population of bass, bream and flathead (just to name a few species) which will satisfy the keen angler. A yabbie pump can be borrowed if requested.


Located on the Macleay River at Kempsey between Coffs Harbour and Port Macquarie. Distance form Sydney is approximately five hours and from Brisbane six and a half hours.

You start your unique houseboat holiday at Kempsey where you can conveniently park your vehicle, off the street, on the business premises.

If making the houseboat holiday a part of a larger holiday, the beautiful Macleay Valley Coast offers a variety of activities and places to visit.


The houseboats are fully self-contained with a well equipped kitchen including a marine fridge with freezer for ice cubes, four burner cooktop and grill. There is a barbeque that may be used on the side of the deck so you can cook while enjoying the glorious river views. If you have spent part of your day fishing and have caught yourself a 'big one' you know you have all the facilities you need to create a delicious meal. Fresh produce is also available from the towns and villages that are located along the banks of the Macleay River. If you want to really relax there are riverside hotels where you can moor the houseboat and dine out a choice of delicious cuisines.

There is an toilet,shower and hand basin on board the houseboat. A modern LCD television screen and DVD player are perfect for those evenings when you want to cosy up and enjoy a good movie together. The television screen has a swivel base and can be watched from either the dining area or the comfort of the double bed. There is even an MP3 player for the music lover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had a great time and would not hesitate in recommending to our friends. Instructions on how to operate the vessel was very comprehensive. Perhaps the availability of hiring two houseboats to accomodate a larger group would add to the fun. We do intend to return for a longer hiring time. Regards Gary N.S.W
