Testimonials from our Guests with Unforgettable Houseboats South Australia

To all the staff at Unforgettable Houseboats,we want you to know that we had an incredible time on the Murray river,our package was everything we thought it would be. The bird life,the campfire,the big bend experience,the jumping fish,car ferries,barossa wine tour,chopper ride,and airport transfers with commentaries,very moving how the Murray river keeps giving. Our boat was the unforgettable 6,"bigger is best",we described it as an apartment on the river. Everything that a family could want was on the boat,so we will highly recommend your company and certainly your service to our group of friends. All the very best from us to you guys. Shane Adams and family - Auckland, New Zealand ~ September 2014

I just want to say a huge thanks to you and LeeAnne and Co for the wonderful work you did in organising our holiday. We had a blast and I will carry the memories with me forever. I will not hesitate to recommend you to any  prospective travellers. Lynette Satchell - Auckland, New Zealand ~ October 2012

This one is to extend the real appreciation to you and your team, for the quality of houseboat, services and support that your and your team provided to us for the period leading up to and including the time of hire. We all had a fantastic time, and as we reflected on it during our 4 days in Adelaide after getting off the boat, we all agreed it was the best holiday any of us had experienced for a long, long time. While there might have been the odd little glitch along the way, they certainly did not negatively impact on our experience. We have all been raving about it to our friends and colleagues since returning to our homes and places of work, giving your operation and suppliers into it – Big Bend and Floating Gourmet – every recommendation we can. I wish you all continued success with what you are doing, and please pass on our appreciation to Charlotte, Mark etc for a job very well done. We were all very happy to tick that one off our “bucket list” and give it a 100% pass mark.
Tevor Scoones - Christchurch, New Zealand ~ October 2012


Many, many thanks for a Truly Unforgettable (10) holiday - the name says it all. The Positives: From the time we arrived in Mannum, until we reluctantly had to leave, it was an absolutely fantastic holiday, made all the better by everyone in Mannum being so friendly and helpful. May I complement you both and your staff on how well prepared and clean 10 was. I have chartered many times in the last 30 years - yachts mainly, in many parts of the world - and the cleanliness of 10 was surely a challenge for others in your industry to follow. The inventory of equipment, particulary in the kitchen and bars is commendable - someone would ask if we had this or that and the response from someone else was yes, there is one, its in this or that cupboard or drawer. The scenery and wildlife and the weather had us all saying why had we not done this before. River Redgums and willows add to the challenge of mooring locations, but after the initial challenge of the first tie up was soon mastered by simply checking the intended mooring location before the final approach. The Negatives: None at all. You can be assured we will be back. Regards and again many thanks for a memorable holiday. Roy & Kathy Graham-Measor - Qld on Truly Unforgettable 10

Beautifully appointed houseboat - quality of all appliances and crockery etc of a very high standard and very well stocked. Extremely helpful staff and maps were good. Exceeded our expectations. Laidler Party - Victoria on Unforgettable 12 ~ "Parachilna Sunset"

We all wanted to drop you a note to say thank you again for a fantastic time you gave us all on the Mighty Murray. The whole experience is something we will always remember from your companies professionalism and 1st rate service to your fantastic boats and the most fantastic scenery and wildlife. Every minute was an experience to remember and we will be telling everyone we know that they must do this holiday.Kindest Regards - Grant, Nicky, Anne, Pete, Steven and Jayne - New Zealand on Unforgettable 3 - October 2009

On behalf of Lyn & Barrie Wilkinson my wife, Linda and of course myself I must write this message to again thank you and your team for the fantastic holiday we had on Unforgettable 12, Parachilna Sunset. The boat was amazing! Though your operation had been strongly recommended to us, even that did not prepare us for the comfort and luxury we discovered on that boat.  It rivals any and betters most of the hotels I have stayed at around the world, (and that is a large number of hotels).We found the environment of the Murray River breath-taking.  The grandeur of the river scenery, particularly the cliffs; the proximity of abundant wildlife, pelicans gliding on and above the water, fish jumping in the water, little swallows "buzzing" the boat eating insects on the fly, hawks circling lazily overhead and kookaburras sitting in the gum trees; the glory of the sunsets putting the cliffs into  spectacular relief; the stillness of the early dawn and its subsequent shattering by the awakening birds; all of these too we will not forget.And equal to all of these was the level of service you provided us.  Making sure the boat was perfect for us; advising us on what to do and see; cheerfully tolerating our naivety and inexperience.  It was very well done Mark. Each of those aspects, the boat, the river environment and your service was equally fantastic and together provided us with a supreme holiday. - Ken Harrison & crew - New Zealand - Unforgettable 12 "Parachilna Sunset" - October 2009.

After waiting 12 months from when we first booked the time had finally arrived and I have to say it would have to be one of the best and relaxing holidays we have ever had. 4 families (12 people). We have all travelled to many different places together but all agreed that this has to be right up there. We must also congratulate your staff, professional, articulated and flat out "bloody good guys" Nothing was a problem. The Laughton's, Dalley's and Humes - New Zealand on Truly Unforgettable (10)

Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our houseboat experience, the professionalism of your team and the quality of the boat made it so easy. Apart from the houseboat trip itself one of the highlights for us was Dave and Mardi's outback dinner and breakfast as well as the Barossa Wine Tour...once again thankyou very much and we will be recommending the whole trip to a number of people...Cheers. Brett Hogan - New Zealand on Unforgettable 5

For a family that is well organized, we met our match with Unforgettable. The size, comfort and luxury surpassed our expectations. Very, very high rating of the houseboat holiday experience. One we will talk about today and for years to come. Thankyou! Thankyou! Would not hesitate to recommend and in fact, we already have. Kristi Clarke - Western Australia on Truly Unforgettable (10) 

Thank you once again for a great trip we all enjoyed so much, your hospitality and attention to personal detail is most welcoming. We all agree that the "Vision" is a well layed out boat, the individual en-suite was the big one for us....
repeat client, Quentin Rewi / Trudy Tarbotton - New Zealand on Unforgettable 11 "The Vision"

"Thanks for an awesome holiday",  we have never had a better break! Now back to reality, we have told all and sundry about the holiday and a brochure is on the counter. Keep cool. Barry, Karen, Harry, Sally and Jack Carrington - Richmond Butchery - Richmond NQ on Unforgettable 4

“We came from the West our intrepid ten, to enjoy the Murray and back again, We spent $500 on grub and the same on grog, When we arrived we were all agog – at the scenery, company, river and birds, Ray caught the fish, we were stumped for words.  Our memories are vast, our problems were few, we agree we’ll be back for adventures anew!”  Schillers, Gaeblers, Collicots, Forbes & Todds – Mandurah, WA

“The magic of the River Murray wove its seductive spell!” Vida – Newcastle, NSW
