Customs House Houseboats


Customs House (Alura) Houseboats Marina and General Store is situated at the historic Customs House on the South Australian/Victorian border, a 20 minute drive from Renmark, a one and a half hour drive from Mildura, a three hour drive from Adelaide or an eight hour drive from Melbourne.

Moored exclusively within this National Park section of river, this small business limits their houseboat fleet to just six boats. This allows them to maintain an elite standard of maintenance and prompt customer service, on and off the boats, while indulging the hirer in the privacy of this unique area.

Customs House Houseboats are the only houseboat company that operates within this secluded section of the River Murray, between Lock 6 in South Australia to Wentworth/Mildura in New South Wales, a distance of 220 river kilometres.
