Canoe or Dinghy Hire

There are many backwaters and anabranches that come of the river and the best way to explore the unspoilt beauty of these areas is by canoe or dingy. Many Operators provide hire facilities as part of their service so if this is something you are interested in it is a good idea to discuss your requirements when you make your booking.

Hire a Toy! - Speed Boat, Jet Ski

For the thrill seekers why not hire a ‘toy’ to get your adrenalin fix. Freedom boat hire based in Murray Bridge and Barmera provide Jet skis, Wakeboard boats and tinny’s for fore hire.

On-Board Chef

For a special occasion or just because you can, why not recruit an onboard chef. Some hirers provide a five-star chef service where the chef will board your houseboat at a pre-arranged point, freshly cook and serve dinner and even do the dishes!

Discuss your requirements with the HHA customer service team who can recommend a selection of boats to suit your needs.
