Starting the motors and a revision of anchoring and mooring will also be done in person.

of the school holidays.   Christmas school holiday balance required before 1st December.

In general, whilst on hire, we require a $1000.00 security bond for the duration of your holiday. You may choose this to be done with a credit card authorization or we can
hold  a cash bond. IF you pay a cash bond, then please bring your bank account details with you as we do not return cash. It will be returned by direct deposit into a
bank account.  Your hire fee includes insurance for damage or loss for amounts above the insurance excess which is $2000.

Additional Items For Hire   ( see photos above, to the left of  the prices table )
Outboard Motor for the dinghy ($25 per day, to a maximum of  $100) We don't include the cost of a motor in every hire as not everyone wants to use a motor.
In most cases, you can anchor as close as 20m from shore, so that's as far as you will need to row.

  • Age and gender:
    Mixed male and female groups.

    At least 1 person per group must be over the age of 25. This can be wavered at the management's discretion but an additional $2000 bond may be required.

    ( Father and son, Mother and daughter, or Couples will be accepted )

    These tougher conditions are a result of recent experiences, unfortunately, the minority of badly behaved groups spoil it for everyone.

  • Pets:
    Sorry no pets allowed. The lakes are protected by National Park's laws.
  • No firearms allowed on board.

  • Restrictions:
    You have full access to the Myall Lakes (over 3 times the size of Sydney Harbour). 
    No access south of Tamboy. ( river between Tea Gardens and the Lakes )
    No access to jetties or wharves

             You must arrive at the marina at least 3.5 hours before the official sunset time.  This is due to the available daylight needed to pack your houseboat,
              receive the briefing, navigate the river and reach the first available anchorage. If you arrive later than this time or you take too long packing the boat, you will stay on your houseboat at the
              marina and leave the next morning.  (the houseboat must be pulling away from the marina 2+  hours before sunset. )
