Houseboat Hire for Australia

You’re unique and you know it. When your friends wear black, you wear red. When everyone else drinks wine, you’ve got a fancy cocktail. And when they’re all booking cruises or riverfront cabins, you’re letting your individuality shine. You’ll take a Australia houseboat, thankyouverymuch. Wait, what? Yeah, you heard us.

Houseboats were pretty much made for those with an independent streak. With no set itinerary and all the amenities of your very own home, “houseboat” might as well be spelled “freedom”. All this makes them the perfect way to explore Australia for those who like to take the road less travelled—or in this case, the waterway less travelled. Better yet, it’s easy to find everything from seriously photogenic, luxury houseboats to cheap houseboat hire in Australia that will have you floating down canals and pulling up to dock-side restaurants in no time.

Step 1: Look for pet-friendly houseboats in Australia. You may crave your freedom, but that doesn’t mean you want to leave your best friend/doggo behind.

Step 2: Make a legendary party playlist, pack up the esky, and yell “All aboard!” to whoever is listening. This can also be Step 1, if you don’t have a pet, but we question your life choices if that is the case.

This will be the holiday you’ll perfect that backflip—we’re sure of it. All you need are Australia budget houseboat rentals from lastminute.com.au, some new boardies, and a few mates to cheer you on. Those are the makings of any good getaway, aren’t they?
