Moving Waters Houseboat

--- 10 Berth - Moored Accommodation ---

Moving Waters can be booked as 'Moored Accommodation' for those that want to experience being on the water but without having to drive and manoeuvre the boat.

It boasts a modern design, is spacious and easy to operate, making it an extremely comfortable and relaxing houseboat for your next well deserved holiday.

As well as relaxing onboard with your family and friends, there is plenty of activities to partake in.

If you're feeling active, take a dip in the river or try some water sport action.  If you want to take a more leisurely pace, paddle in the kayak supplied or drop in a fishing line to try and catch your dinner.

The large shaded lower and upper decks give you an awesome view of the river, sandstone cliffs or the town's light reflecting on the water at night. 

Moving Waters is close to Renmark's town centre, but is also amongst the natural environment of the river red gums, for a true river experience.

Frequently Asked Questions 

How many people are allowed on 'Moving Waters'?

Maritime regulations state the number of persons on board must not exceed the number of berths, being 10. Children under 12 months of age are not included in the count.

How much bond do I have to pay and when do I get it back?

Bond is $450 for moored accommodation and is processed as a pre-authorisation hold on your credit card.   This hold will automatically be released by your bank in 5-7 business days if there are no issues, excessive cleaning or damages have been caused on the houseboat. 

Are houseboat holidays suitable for children?

Yes - houseboats are fantastic for family holidays. There is so much to do on a houseboat for families - swimming, fishing, kayaking, watching wildlife, watching the supplied DVD's and if you have a dinghy or speedboat, other water sports including kneeboarding, wakeboarding or skiing.
The playground is only a 2 minute walk from the houseboat and the township is only a 5 minute walk from the houseboat.  Bring your bikes as the riverfront path that goes past the houseboat is great for family bike rides.

Boat was very clean and new looking. Everything was fresh and tidy when we arrived. We had everything we needed!

We love the whole package with houseboats - spectacular scenery, tranquility. Moving Waters, in particular, had a modern kitchen, great sound system and convenient power setup (in comparison to some we've had). Having the camp oven to use was great. Rating 5/5.
– Craig, Sam and Kids - Goolwa SA

Cleanliness and everything we needed was on board. Scenery on our travels was fantastic, breathtaking and tranquil. We had a grat time and will be back. Rating 5/5.
– Ron and Di - Magill SA

We enjoyed everything about our stay, accommodation was faultless, detail to decor and fittings is a credit to Deanne and Stephen. The swings on the top deck were a nice addition and nice to relax in. Having the solar panels is definitely a great idea, not only reduces costs but also reduces noise - fantastic. Deanne and Stephen were both pleasant, friendly and extremely helpful. Rating 5/5
– Margie and Dave - Semaphore SA

We loved the automatic quiet generator; the solar panels; the wonderful furniture on the top deck; the large table on the back deck; the dishwasher! Excellent scenery - we had "the spot" and loved it - perfect one day, perfect the next! Rating 5/5.
