The beautiful, historic, Clyde River is famed for the purity of it’s water, said to be the cleanest in Eastern Australia. That’s because from its source and throughout its 100km of tributaries, it flows through only State Forests and National Parks.
Near the ocean the estuary is wide and peaceful, with pristine secluded corners and beaches in it’s extensive waterways. It’s here in Batemans Bay, that Clyde River Houseboats offers a wonderful holiday opportunity for you to explore this magic environment.
The map can take you 38km up its meandering course through peaceful natural bushland, and you will enjoy it in total comfort. Glowing testimonials speak of spacious, clean and well-equipped houseboats, with great kitchens, tv, dvd and all you could want. The houseboat holiday is ideal for spending quality time with your family, friends, or for a romantic revival or honeymoon.
This really is a unique experience. Imagine fishing or snorkeling; or lazing on deck; wading on the shore; exploring the next bend; or barbequing your fresh catch. And at night, the atmosphere is so mesmerising with ripples on the water, and a milky way like none other. Mornings could not be more beautiful as the sun gently melts the mist away.
Only a driver’s licence is required, as fishing licences are included, and experienced staff will provide full training for your safety and protection.
At the start and end of your trip, you’re guided to and from the dock.
For a shorter river experience, our great small blue boats – or “tinnies” – are on hire for a few hours, so try your hand.
