Get close to nature at this unique getaway.
Our unique Captain's Cottage is available for hire on weekends. This riverfront property's original farmhouse was, at one time, home to Captain Bill Drage, one of the Murray River's last paddle-steamer captains. We have sympathetically restored the buildings with consideration for authenticity. It is ideal for 2-5 people who love history, nature, free access to kayaks and appreciate the quirkiness of having amenities in rustic outbuildings.

The space
The cottage consists of:

Two bedrooms with queen beds (and bed-linen)
Large living room with double sofa bed (no bed-linen)
R/C air conditioning in these three rooms
Kitchenette with fridge and electric kettle
Spacious comfortable verandah
Towels etc are not provided

Outside areas include:

Camp kitchen with large stove, fridge, kettle, microwave, toaster, pots, crockery & cutlery
Bathroom with hot shower

We are a kayak business "Canoe the Riverland" so our kayaks are quality boats and the creek trails are stunning. Choose between doubles or singles and follow the trail guide whenever you fancy.
