Houseboat Holidays Australia

Have you ever been called “too independent”? Well, here at Wotif, we don’t think that’s a bad thing. We celebrate adventure and encourage exploring on your own terms. What we’re about to suggest might sound crazy, but we promise, it’s awesome: Australia houseboat hire. It takes all the comforts of home and moves them onto a boat; it’s sort of like caravanning, but on the water. And whether you’re travelling solo or looking for pet-friendly options for the whole family, there’s one thing Australia house boaters (yes, you’ll be called a house boater, now) have in common: they’re definitely an adventurous bunch.

From starboard to port, houseboat rentals in Australia are the epitome of independence, so get ready to embrace your can-do attitude. You’ll cook dinner in the galley, not the kitchen. You’ll use lines, not ropes. Need to go to the back of ship? That’s aft. But you don’t need to be a sailing expert or memorize your nautical phrasebook. Houseboat hire is also just a great opportunity to say things like “Grab a fishing pole from amidships” or yell “Heave ho!” for no apparent reason. And Australia is the ultimate locale to test out your seaworthiness. Looking for the ultimate experience, too? You just may find your preferred amenities in one of our luxury houseboats.

Practice your square knot and ready the dinghy—you’re heading for smooth sailing when you book Australia houseboat holidays with Wotif. We’ll help you get your mooring with great prices and amenities, and we make it easy to plan your trip. We see an amazing getaway in your future, or as a boater might say, dead ahead.
