We are ALIVE!
And we are missing you tremendously. It’s been quite some time since we hit your mailbox as we navigated through the state flood crisis. Not gonna lie guys, we can be honest with you, right? – we kind of dropped the bundle a bit, in survival mode, fairly heartbroken, and a lot lost. Since November 2022 things were changing fast, there were many unknowns, the flow report kept increasing, and our family’s livelihood was at serious risk.
We’ve had the state premier visit and speak with us, we have kept 10 houseboats safe, we started a small cleaning business to retain our amazing cleaning team, we have lost an unimaginable amount of money just as we recovered from COVID, and we have tinny’d along lock 5 road & touched the underside of Paringa bridge from the water!
BUT we are safe, our kids are healthy, our home is fine AND it looks like we will be reopening this MARCH!! …And breathe. 😌
Check out some pictures of our past few months.
We NEED to, and we NEED you all back while this river is absolutely flourishing! The yabbies are OVERFLOWING people’s nets, the fish are biting. The banks are clean & dry again, the weather is primo , and the native flora is sprouting.
Now YOU GUYS are amazing 🧡🧡
We’ve had many messages of support and thoughts, surprises in our post office box with thoughtful gifts, we’ve had loyal families booking holidays for the future in support, and even groups offering to come to the Riverland to help us get sh*t done!!
Thank you so much to our loyal, beautiful, selfless community we have. You are honestly what makes this all worth it.
As mentioned, our family-run small business has taken a monster financial hit. If you are thinking of taking a houseboat holiday with your loved ones in 2023, 2024, or 2025 please book with us! The sooner the better as we have 4 months worth of deferrals being placed within this time frame – we’d hate to disappoint with lack of availability. Your commitment to a houseboat holiday with us won’t go unnoticed.
As a huge thank you to all of your legends, we’d love to give you something special from us to you for your b’day. We wont tell anyone how old you are and your info is well guarded. Simply update your details here and leave the rest to us!
Thank you from the bottom of our water-logged hearts 😉🧡
We value you and your thoughts, you are our why.
We’d love to hear from you via this short 5 minute survey. Your feedback is appreciated and will help us make some big future business decisions. In adversity, we got to take steps to improve not just survive. Thank you, your 5 minutes are appreciated.
