Hotels & Motels

The Murray River, Lakes and Coorong has been a favourite destination for holidaymakers for well over a century, and the shack has been a huge part of its appeal. These holiday homes are often situated in prime spots with the river or beach almost at your doorstep, and facilities ranging from simple to sensational. If you prefer a fully catered stay, the region has some wonderful hotels and motels, many located close to the river and town services.

Waterfront on Jefferson

From $350 to $950

Located right on the water's edge, this property has a private jetty, so you can moor your boat, or help the kids into kayaks with ease. The Wellington Marina boat ramp is a convenient two minutes' drive from the house.

Four bedrooms have queen size beds, with the master bedroom serviced by an ensuite. A modern family bathroom services the other three bedrooms.

All linen, including towels, is supplied, and best of all, you don't have to wash it when you leave! The kitchen is fully equipped for all your cooking needs, and the laundry has a washing machine, iron and ironing board (but we recommend you avoid domestic chores like laundry - you're on holiday!)

Outside, the rear yard is fully fenced from the road and water, to keep the kids safe, and the private jetty will give the kids hours of fun. If you're visiting in winter, then rug up and make use of the firepit, overlooking the water. Don't forget the wine and marshmallows.
