A houseboat hire holiday is kind of like a camping trip but with all the mod cons and conveniences there when you need them. Houseboats are surprisingly easy to navigate and with only a driver’s licence, you can become a river captain. Perfect for families and friends, houseboat hire allows you to choose to explore an isolated section of the river, or moor at a town and grab a great steak in a local pub. If that doesn’t float your boat, how about a cruise on one of the Murray’s majestic paddle steamers? The crew takes care of everything for you, so all you have to do is enjoy the meals, the wine and the views.
Fantasy is moored at the historic and picturesque town of Mannum a leisurely one and a half hours drive east of Adelaide. Mannum is a great starting point for this unique boating experience.
What better way to view the towering sandstone cliffs, the mighty river Red Gums, to visit the historic towns which line the banks of Australia's largest river or to just sit back and watch the sun set and marvel at nature in all it's awe inspiring splendour, than aboard our luxuriously appointed houseboat Fantasy.
Tastefully furnished and very spacious with all modern conveniences including LCD television, DVD players, full kitchen and six person spa, it's fantasy at its finest.
Flat White is a beautiful new houseboat and features up to six separate bedrooms which sleep up to 12 people in privacy. Offering the very latest in modern appliances, furnishings, electronics and fittings with stunning decor throughout.
