Welcome, and thank you for visiting our website. We hope you enjoy having a look around.
Due to the recent interstate rains, there is an increased water flow into S.A at the moment which is fabulous news for the environment! It is a very special time to holiday on the Murray and to experience a healthy rising river, especially the backwaters which are brimming with life. There are so many water birds around and the frog chorus at night is something to behold. We give you plenty of tips and instruction on how to handle your houseboat with the extra current, and as of 7th December our water level at the marina is now 50cm above normal pool level. Further upstream the river has risen even more and we expect to peak around Christmas time - fingers crossed the yabbies will also start to bite!
As always, you need to respect the river, wear a life jacket when swimming or enjoying any water activities and look out for submerged or floating hazards. The water has changed colour due to the inflows of organic matter from interstate and is just a sign of a healthy flowing river!
If you need a relaxing break where you can reconnect with family and friends and experience a beautiful part of the Riverland please get in touch - we'd love to welcome you on board!
PS...We were absolutely delighted to be named the WINNER of Unique Accommodation at the South Australian Tourism Awards on Friday 4th November! A great honour and we will now represent SA (and our beautiful Riverland region) at the Australian Tourism Awards next year.
