Clyde River Houseboats

Houseboat in Batemans Bay

Clyde River Houseboats rents out eight- and 10-berth vessels. They're upmarket affairs, more like floating houses than boats, and no licence is needed. Prices halve from May to August.

For more than double the rate, a 'spa houseboat' adds air-con, a 10-seater dining table, a top-deck spa and sun loungers, and other luxuries.
