Houseboating in Winter

Imagine cruising the Riverland in a luxurious houseboat, where still crsip mornings flow into sun drenched afternoons.






Winter is a fantastic time to be out on the river.

The Mediterranean climate of the Riverland means that the average temperature during June, July & August is just over 20 degrees.

Days are mild and rain is rare. Misty mornings create a magical feel as you gaze across the glass like expanse of water. Days of sunshine are plentiful in the Riverland particularly in winter which makes it the perfect time to cruise the uncrowded waterway and find your own little piece of paradise to moor for the night.

Build a campfire on the banks of the river and relax with a wine or a camp oven dinner. Or simply stay on board and enjoy the cosiness of your houseboat, most featuring RC air-conditioning or other heating facilities and enjoy a warm cuppa.

Take advantage of the off peak rates which make a luxury winter escape as the captain of your own floating accommodation an even more attractive option.

The Houseboat Hirers Association (HHA) are the people in the know when it comes to selecting the right houseboat for you. Offering an email and phone booking service the HHA team can answer all your questions about houseboating, recommend a selection of boats tailored for your specific needs and book your holiday for you.
