What's underneath a houseboat on the Murray River?

Click here for frequently asked houseboat questions.

  Houseboats on the Murray River Need to be surveyed by the local governing authority to ensure they meet environmental regulations and strict safety guidelines. Boats must be surveyed each couple of years and inspected.   The boats are supported on 2 (or 3) large pontoons which are generally made of steel or aluminium. They are extremely strong and you would need to hit something very hard and fast to make even a small dent.  


  Septic goes into a holding tank (left) which is hung under the floor of the boat. This can be pumped out if full or upon the hirers return. Fuel tanks (top right) are very large and it is unlikely you will need to refuel or empty septic on a normal trip.   Houseboat boats are customised according to the needs of each customer.
