Quick Walkthrough

Wanderer, licenced for up to 6, features a permanent double bed, with 2 single bunks directly opposite.  A vario couch also converts to a double bed of an evening.

The fully equipped kitchen, include a 180L fridge/freezer, oven, stove and dining nook.  

Wanderer is a great fishing boat having walk around decks and fly bridge controls so the captain is not isolated from any activities.

The BBQ is located on the upper deck underneath the solid roof, giving you great protection from the sun and the odd shower of rain but not taking up the whole top deck, still giving you sun baking room. Wanderer is the only houseboat of this size on the river with this great feature.

Wanderer is also our only pet friendly houseboat, so if you have a furry family member that would love to be a part of your holiday you are welcome to bring him/her along.   For your comfort, we wouldn’t recommend pets larger than 15kg.  Please note a $50 cleaning fee applies.

Wanderer is a great boat for a small family, or a few friends who don’t mind sharing close quarters.  Bringing the fur babies along is just a bonus!
