Houseboating - Plan your food
There are many options for planning your food depending on your group and what they would prefer. We strongly suggest that you purchase all of your food and drinks prior to boarding the houseboat as you are limited with availability once you head off up the river. There are many towns along the way with general stores but they are fairly restricted in the goods they offer having basic grocery lines but not enough to rely on for purchasing each day's requirements.
Most groups will sit down together and work out a suggested menu and have one particular group purchase the necessary food in one go. This way the cost is just divided up between the number of people on the houseboat and you're not doubling up on everyday items.
Murray River Holidays
Another option is for each couple or family to be assigned a particular meal(s) for the duration of the trip. This can be quite effective because it spreads the work around and allows everyone the opportunity to participate in mealtimes.
We also offer a very handy service whereby your meat order can be ordered with the local Mannum butcher, Male's Meats and have it delivered down to your houseboat prior to boarding free of charge. To download and view their pdf order form, click here.
You can also order your fresh fruit and vegetables by downloading the order form, and then fax it through to Unforgettable Houseboats 4 weeks prior to your departure.
