Holiday here this year! 5 reasons why you should choose a houseboat holiday in 2021

Isolation Vacation

Covid has certainly changed the way we live our day-to-day lives. We now live in a world of shopping centre check-ins, constant hand washing and sanitising, mask-wearing and social distancing.

A houseboat holiday is a perfect way to avoid the crowds and get away with those that you choose to invite along, a small handful of your nearest and dearest to relax on the Tweed River. Enjoy fresh air, sunshine, and time away from Covid living. You can even have your groceries delivered directly to your boat on your arrival day, meaning you can avoid the supermarkets altogether – the time saver on the day is just a bonus!



For many families, it has been well over 12 months since they have been in the same state, let alone the same home. Now with the freedom of movement between states, it is time for that much-anticipated catch-up with interstate friends and family. Our largest houseboats accommodate up to 12 guests so are ideal for your reunion celebrations!

Support Local

Holiday here this year and in doing so you will be supporting small, local businesses. With international travel on hold, there has been no better time to appreciate the beauty of our own backyard.

By taking a houseboat holiday on the Tweed River you won’t only be supporting us, you will also be helping our suppliers and other locals when you purchase additional items or stop by the many cafes, taverns, and shops that call the Tweed Valley home.

Enjoy a delicious pastry and a coffee from Cubby Bakehouse or a beer at Chinderah Tavern. Pick up supplies at the general store in Tumbulgum and treat yourself to tasty lunch at the Tumby tavern. Or take a stroll around the historic sugar mill and grab a coffee from Stamp and Grind café at Condong.

We encourage you to visit these villages, not only to experience these beautiful regions of the Tweed for yourself but to support local business.


Relax and Recharge!

It’s fair to say that the past 12 months have brought with it a huge amount of anxiety, stress, and worry. A houseboat adventure is a perfect way to recharge while you immerse yourself within the peace and quiet of the Tweed Valley. With 25+ km of quiet waterways, rainforest backdrops, and Mt Warning views, you will wonder why you hadn’t taken a houseboat holiday years ago! Kick back, relax and enjoy a much-needed break from civilisation.

Explore the great outdoors!

Escape the four walls of your house and explore this beautiful part of the world! There is always so much to see and do here on the Tweed River. Fishing, crabbing, kayaking, swimming or simply kick back with a good book as the world floats by.

Our experienced team will teach you everything you need to know to captain your own adventure, so you can rest assured you are in good hands! Full charts and maps are supplied on board to navigate the river with ease allowing you to fully experience an adventure like no other!

So, if you are looking for that next holiday idea or would just like to break free from reality for a couple of days we are here to help! We would love to share with you this beautiful region we are lucky enough to call home.
