Blackwood River Houseboats are fully self-contained. They do houseboat, linen and dinghy. You bring food, drinks and fishing gear. OK, you can add catered and skippered options, if you like.
No Skippers ticket is required for self-drive, with a full induction on arrival. This is a practical adventure and suitable if you are an experienced, confident driver who loves the great outdoors. Rest assured, the team has over 50 years experience in charters and training.
Houseboats have top, rear and front decks with a self-contained galley kitchen, 240ltr fridge/freezer, gas hotplate/ovens, crockery & cutlery. All top decks have shade, rear decks with bbq & ladders & front deck covers. Wet areas have hot showers and normal flush toilets. There's iceboxes outside and heaters inside. Ask about kayaks and paddleboards, the team are only too happy to help.
You'll be given advice on fishing spots, swimming, secret kayaking spots, bush walks and the best itinerary for your stay.
Blackwood River Houseboats was awarded in the Environmental Excellence category in the 2018 Telstra Business Awards and further highly commended for being Environmental Champions in the community.
Pam and James look forward to welcoming guests on board their beautifully appointed houseboats and hope you enjoy your stay on the mighty Blackwood River.
