Our group of 3 kiwi couples spent a fantastic week on "Kiwi-Oz". The houseboat was very roomy with all the comforts of home.
Gliding down the river was so relaxing and mooring each evening gave us a great chance to explore the riverbank and towns.
We saw a lot of birdlife and even a few kangaroos in the bush. A very enjoyable holiday which we would thoroughly recommend.
Thanks to Mary and Peter for all of their hospitality. All the best to you both and we hope to catch up again sometime.

We and 2 other couples recently spent 5 days/4 nights on the Kiwi-Oz. From the moment we booked nothing was too much trouble for Mary & Peter.
They supplied us with all the information we needed to have a wonderful holiday. The houseboat was lovely with more than what we needed. The scenery was beautiful as we motored down the Murray and we always knew that if we had any problems Mary & Peter were just a phone call away.
We would highly recommend hiring this houseboat to anyone and we will certainly be back.

Where you will escape from the hustle and bustle of your busy lives. Peace and tranquility, fun and leisure are words
that come to mind.
Riverland Houseboats Loxton can provide a holiday for all
the family to enjoy, the options are endless on your River Murray “Kiwi-Oz” houseboat holiday.
It can be as quiet and peaceful as you wish or, if you prefer fast and furious, we can provide a boat and instructor and you can learn to ski.
You can stop off at most of the towns along the river, where shopping and a freshly-brewed coffee are just a short, easy walk from the river. Walk the walking trails; visit a wetland; meet the friendly locals; maybe even taste some wines, chocolates or other local delights.
The Loxton Historical Village and the historic Overland Corner Hotel are also accessible from the river and are definitely worth a visit.
If that all sounds a bit hectic, you could just relax on the top deck, play your favourite music and watch the pelicans gliding in the thermals; or you could stop at one of the many white sandbars along the broad, tranquil stretches of the river - wonderful areas for the kids to play and for fishers to throw a line.
As you motor along, you will hear kookaburras laughing and the whistling of kites as they soar high over the magnificent river red-gums. You may even see kangaroos nibbling at the grasses growing beside the river. As night approaches, prepare the food for the barbeque, fill the wine glasses and watch as the setting sun turn the cliffs a vibrant orange colour.
After dark, turn the music down, refill the wine glasses and wonder as the magical night skies – far away from city lights – tell their own story
