Best of all, we are based in one of the best parts of the river at Morgan – the northern-most point of the magnificent Murray! We are in the enviable situation that because of the Morgan to Whyalla pipeline this section of the river must be constantly maintained at the current water levels.

Fox Tale 1 has a rear lounge – extremely popular as a comfortable spot to join in the fun when everyone is enjoying themselves on the swim deck when you are moored. Many families use it as a “kids retreat” where they can watch DVD’s and enjoy themselves while the parents have their own “space” in the main lounge area at the other end of the boat! This area on Fox Tale 3 has been made into the extra queen-size bedroom
Foxtale 4 has 2 queen bedrooms with ensuites plus foldout couch as the 3rd bedroom with ensuite also all other boats & layouts can be viewed at our website
Whether you want to go upstream or downstream there is an abundance of spectacular scenery to enjoy. If you would like some maps sent to you, let us know. As a simple guide, if you cruise along at a leisurely 2500 to 3000 rpm you will be travelling about 8km per hour. Most hirers like to do a little bit of travelling each day then find a nice spot to moor for the night and sit down and enjoy what the serenity of the Murray has to offer.
Head upstream past Cadell, through Lock 2 then on to Waikerie, Loxton, Berri and Renmark. Downstream you can go through Lock 1 at Blanchetown then head down towards Swan Reach, Purnong, Walker Flat towards Mannum.
Your only restriction is how long you book for. We recommend a week – on a weekend you have only just started to unwind and relax when it is time to turn around and head back to Morgan then go through the routine of packing up again! A week allows you the luxury of finding a secluded location and having the time to enjoy it before moving on to another marvellous part of the River.
There are places to stop and things to do on-shore such as stopping for a camel ride, exploring some of the towns you may visit or enjoying a meal at one of the hotels.
We have seven boats offering a variety of sizes and designs giving you the opportunity to select a holiday houseboat which will suit your requirements and budget.
Check out our website for full details and photos of all boats
Fox Tale houseboats are located in Morgan on the Murray River. Morgan is 2 hours drive from Adelaide city centre – not much longer than the drive to Mannum and it is a much more picturesque and quieter part of the river.
Head out Main North Rd and follow A20 along the Gawler By-pass. Take the turnoff to A32 (towards Roseworthy) then first right onto B81 to Freeling & Kapunda. Follow the signs for B81 at Kapunda to Eudunda then onto Morgan.
