Your G2Y houseboat holiday can be anything you want it to be; exciting or peaceful, intimate or exuberant, energetic or relaxing. On this page we'll inspire you with some ideas, or you can talk to us about your own ideas, and we'll do all we can to make sure the time you spend with us is enjoyable, memorable and hassle-free.
But first, some safety information. Click the map below to see where on the Clarence River you are (and are not) allowed to take our houseboats, and details of safe anchorage spots.
Whether you're a family that enjoys fishing and crabbing occasionally with the kids, or a group of mates whose life wouldn't be complete without fishing, houseboats on the Clarence are perfect for you. Our magnificent river provides some of the most exceptional fishing in NSW, particularly during winter. This quote about the Clarence River is from ifishaustralia ...
"Supplies of fish will vary with river and sea conditions, notably how much fresh water there is, and whether there has been a flood. Seasons will also make a difference, but if you are prepared to move with the fish, good catches can be found in many parts of the estuary. Throughout the river system ... fish most commonly caught are bream, blackfish, flathead, perch and whiting."
Local fishing guide, Mick Waite, caught the fish in these pictures. If you want to find the local hot spots to try and catch fish like these during your holiday, just ask us for Mick's details when you arrive.
