Four of us (two couples) hired a houseboat for a week leaving from Customs House and it was GREAT! Our boat 'Ranger' was a two bedroom, 1 large bathroom, with an extra toilet out the back was wonderful. Plenty of space for relaxing during the day instead of having to go to your bed to read a book! We have... More

I'm biased bcos I've been heading up a few times a year for 20 years. but Its the highlight of my traveks around australia. you can camp and fish in numerous spots- I like near mildura. there are historic towns with old steamers like echuca...

Very very disappointing at the price . Being an Aussie and having travelled extensivelly ., was embarrassed as an ambassador for this beautiful country when making conversation with overseas visitors . So overpriced . The cost was 4 times the price per day as sea cruises which are 5 star compared to this 2 star operation . The accomadition has... More

We decided to finally visit the Murray River in Oct this year and as a family of 4 who hadn't had a family holiday for quite some time decided to splurge on a houseboat. Murray River Houseboats website presented beautifully and communication appeared to be great. We booked a 4 day mid week holiday. Everything was suggestive our dream holiday... More

We just love the Murray.. To camp, ski, cabin, anywhere at all. Cobram, Echuca, Albury, Mannun. Grab a boat, a motor home, a JetSki and enjoy The Great Murray!

The Murray river is mighty ! Spectacular scenery , bird life to satisfy the most enthusiastic Twitcher , fabulous sunsets ,all in all just spectacular ! However the poor old Murray River Princess is quite different . The boat itself is somewhat dated , fair enough , you might say , it is trying to replicate an old style Mississippi... More

The Murray River from Mannum to Blanchetown was beautiful with to River 1.5 meters higher than normal so lots of area covered in water which is unusual. The cliffs draw a wonderful contrast to the surrounding landscape. Captain Cook tours runs it on Murray Princess which was great but some aspects including the on board entertainment was less than professional.

A while ago we went on a family cruise down the Murray River. The people at Unforgettable Boats were amazing. Couldn't fault them at all for all the help they gave us and everything. The only drawback was the boat. Sadly by no stretch of the imagination was it luxurious - it was old and the spa bath was plugged... More
