Lowbank cliffs

WAIKERIE, well known as the “Gateway to the Riverland”, is a pleasant 2 hour drive from Adelaide or Mildura. The majestic Murray River glides past the town. It’s wide and calm water inviting all comers to enjoy its’ serenity.
Whether finding a quiet niche to read a book or a suitable bank to ski from, Waikerie has it all. You can cruise as little as an hour and have the feeling of being in another world with towering cliffs opposite your idyllic mooring.
By starting your holiday in Waikerie with ‘GREEN & GOLD HOUSEBOATS”, it gives you the freedom of choosing up or downstream – with equally attractive scenery. In our area you do not need to travel through a lock if you’re intimidated (no reason to be) and places to moor are of your own choice. With no shacks or willow trees to speak of, your view of the riverbanks and cliffs while travelling is unimpeded. WAIKERIE has it all!
When hiring from GREEN & GOLD HOUSEBOATS you are dealing direct with the owners of the vessels, James & Ruth Copeland. As owners they know each boat and the river intimately. With a background in the mechanical and metal trades, if ever you encounter a problem or difficulties, James can usually remedy the problem without the need of waiting for outside tradesmen.
ECONOMICAL: Being able to bring your own food and drink with you means “houseboating” is probably one of the cheapest ways of having a relaxing holiday. The costs per person can be as minimal as $30 per person per day.
FAMILY FRIENDLY: Why mess up your own house for a family gathering? Get everyone together, share the cost and hire a houseboat.
OVERSEAS GUESTS? Hire a houseboat and showcase what South Australia and the Mighty Murray have to offer.
WATER SPORTS: With over 60km of river around Waikerie and only 8 commercial hire boats, you can fish, waterski, jetski, parasail or anything you want to.
NATURE: Plenty of birds (pelicans, eagles, hawks); kangaroos, emus to look out for – we have it all!
