--- 9 Berth - Moored Accommodation ---
Come aboard "The Murray Dream", a classic and comfortable 9 berth houseboat that serves as floating self contained accommodation. Unlike other houseboats, The Murray Dream stays moored, allowing you the chance to experience being on the water, with all the fun of a houseboat holiday, but without having to drive and manoeuvre the boat.
It is accommodation with a difference. Swim from the rear deck or try your luck at catching dinner on the end of a fishing line and then cook it on the hooded bbq whilst enjoying the spectacular view. If you have a speedboat or dinghy, moor it next to the houseboat, which provides a great base for your group to enjoy some water sports.
Get up close with nature and its wildlife from your deck chair or investigate further in the 2 person kayak supplied.
Kick a footy or play cricket in the parklands at the houseboat's door step or take the kids to the playground, just a 2 minute walk along the riverfront path. Another 3 minutes from there and you are in the main township amongst the shops, cafes and restaurants.
On The Murray Dream you are so close to the town centre, but on the other hand it is so peaceful relaxing on the rear deck that you feel so far away from civilisation.

The houseboat enabled us to be on the water, use the kayaks and go fishing but still have the benefit of the facilities offered by the houseboat. An ultimate relaxing river front holiday. Rating 4/5
