Welcome, and thank you for visiting our website.
In a world of chaos, we have chosen to stop hiring our houseboats during this time of #stayathome, non essential travel and social distancing as the safety of our Griffens Marina family and your crew is paramount. We know you will be following all advice too, and feel so lucky to have the big, beautiful Murray River flowng past our home. The calming sensation of being near the water helps restore some balance in our lives and as Cosi says, everyone should come and have a houseboat holiday on the Murray!
With the launch of the new "HOLIDAY HERE THIS YEAR" campaign, there is no better time to support regional tourism businesses and we would love to welcome you on board a little later in the year when we return to happier times! With big open spaces, and peace and solitude, a houseboat holiday really is one of the most relaxing holidays you can have.
Now is the time to secure your dates for the rest of 2020 and also into 2021. Being on or near water has been proven to be a huge health benefit, so make sure you try and plan some special river time into your schedule!
Winter is one of my favourite times to be on the river - the backwaters are brimming with life and there are so many birds around - it is such a joy to see. We can even hire you a double kayak so you can explore, discover and get to places you can't by foot. You will be amazed at the wetland birds you will encounter, and be dwarfed by the giant redgums standing like sentinels in the river.The river is a wonderful playground but remember to always treat it with respect and take care of its unique environment at all times.
We give you plenty of tips and instruction on how to handle your houseboat during your show out lesson, and our instructors love pointing out their favourite mooring spots. You may even get told where the fish have been biting too.
If you are looking for a boat for an extra special holiday, check out DAYDREAMER HOUSEBOAT, our fabulous 6 bedroom boat (12 berth) with a host of features ideal for large families or groups of friends and we have availability for EASTER! There is also the bonus of a large heated spa on the top deck. It's a great spot to be day or night and the pefect place to relax and enjoy the amazing views.
Take care everyone, with our best wishes Miriam & Co.
