Why choose a winter getaway on a houseboat?


Peace and tranquillity

Imagine waking up to the gentle sounds of water lapping against your boat, surrounded by the quiet stillness of the river. Our houseboats provide a secluded sanctuary where you can escape the noise and stress of city life. Whether you’re reading a book on the deck, meditating, or simply enjoying the view, the tranquillity of the Blackwood River is unmatched.

Cosy comfort

Our houseboats are designed to keep you warm and comfortable during the cooler winter months. With fully equipped kitchens, cosy living areas and heated cabins, you’ll have all the amenities you need for a comfortable stay. After a day of exploring, relax by the fireplace or enjoy a hot drink as you watch the sunset over the river.

Margaret River a hub for winter activities

While the river itself offers plenty of activities such as fishing, kayaking and leisurely boat rides, the surrounding Margaret River region is ripe for exploration. Visit local wineries, cosy up to a warm fire, indulge in gourmet food experiences and enjoy the cultural attractions. And of course, the whale watching season from June to December is a must-see, with up to 35,000 Southern Right, Minke, Humpback and Blue whales migrating through the area.


Winter brings a unique charm to the Blackwood River, with misty mornings and crisp, clear days. Explore the scenic riverbanks, rich with native flora and fauna. Birdwatchers will delight in the variety of species that call this area home.


Don’t forget your camera—every moment is a photo opportunity.
