Come experience a unique self-drive holiday on a River Murray Houseboat, which has been supplying quality houseboats in the region since 1994.
The locally owned and operated business by Riverland Locals, Rob, and Jenna Hughes, has won numerous South Australian Tourism Awards in recent years.
River Murray Houseboats is located on the Murray River at Paringa, a short five-minute drive from the township of Renmark in South Australia’s Riverland Region.
Houseboats are the ultimate way to experience the Murray River. When you hire one of our houseboats you are in for a complete river experience. Everything you need is at your fingertips. You can bring your own food and drinks to stock up the kitchen. Guests appoint their own driver (or drivers), and you are given expert tuition from River Murray Houseboats. Once you’ve learnt how to drive the boat, it is all yours to enjoy!
Come stay a while, we’re on river time!
