RiverTonic is a newly refurbished houseboat moored in Renmark in the Riverland, a scenic 3 hour drive from Adelaide.  It has all the modern luxuries you would want on a houseboat, and everything you need to make your Murray River experience on you won’t forget!

It has 4 generous queen-size bedrooms with zip-apart beds giving flexibility to suit your requirements. RiverTonic sleeps up to 12 people, with the second lounge room converting to a 5th bedroom. There are two luxury bathrooms plus a third toilet and laundry (with washing machine and dryer). Ducted air-conditioning to all rooms, as well as a gas heater.

We’ve recently added the RiverTonic Gin bar which will be a great chill out spot for those onboard.

Prepare a banquet in the well-equipped kitchen with beautiful granite bench tops, dishwasher, microwave, and stainless steel appliances or send the crew to the BBQ to cook your ‘catch of the day’.

Relax in the spa on the shaded upper deck and watch the towering sandstone cliffs and the mighty river Red Gums go by. Even the skipper can enjoy the scenery from the upper deck helm.

RiverTonic will exceed the expectations of even the most discerning houseboat holidaymaker.

About the Murray River

The Murray River is Australia’s longest river, at 2,508 kilometres (1,558 mi) in length. The Murray rises in the Australian Alps, draining the western side of Australia’s highest mountains, and then meanders across Australia’s inland plains, forming the border between the states of New South Wales and Victoria as it flows to the northwest into South Australia.

It turns south at Morgan for its final 315 kilometres (196 mi), reaching the ocean at Lake Alexandrina.

The Murray River flows through a number of Award Winning Regions including the Riverland (where the Houseboat is moored) and the Murraylands closer to Adelaide.

The River has a variety of native fish such as the famous Murray cod, trout cod, golden perch, Macquarie perch, silver perch, eel-tailed catfish, Australian smelt, and western carp gudgeon, and other aquatic species like the Murray short-necked turtle, Murray River crayfish, broad-clawed yabbies, and the large clawed Macrobrachium shrimp.

Also found are other aquatic species such as the common longnecked turtles, common yabbies, the small claw-less paratya shrimp, water rats, and platypus.

Whether you want to sight-see, fish, ski or just relax, a Houseboat on the Murray River is the perfect experience.
