A Murray river houseboat holiday,  enjoy the peace and the picturesque views.

The Murray river is the largest river in Australia as it crosses through three states, New South Wales, South Australia, and Victoria.

This beloved Australian river is home of one of the most popular vessels that we offer here at Nautal, the Houseboat. A Houseboat is a vessel that has been designed to be used as a home on the water.

This unique combination allows guests to combine both a house and a boat, which means that you can have all of your home comforts, while afloat.

Houseboats offer a lot of variety as they come in a variety sizes, specifications, and characteristics. What they all have in common is that they are very easy to sail, so you wont need a skipper to do it. When you rent your houseboat the boat owner will give you some simple instructions, and test your understanding and then you’ll be ready to sail away!

Another surprising thing about houseboats is that you don’t need to be a large family to rent one, there are many smaller houseboats that can accommodate a smaller family such as 2-4 people, but on the other hand if you are a bigger family, you can charter a boat for  14 people.
