Murtho, South Australia
Nestled on the bank of the mighty Murray River, in South Australia's famous Riverland district, the vintage PS Julie Fay is a unique accommodation experience for couples seeking privacy in a stunning natural setting. A single sofa bed is available for a third person.
From the comfort of your fully serviced suite, you will experience river life on this charming paddle-wheel boat without the hassle of cruising the river to find a mooring.
Birds and fish abound in these world-recognised wetlands, sunsets display full glory, the stars are bright in the night sky and sunrise brings a dawn chorus of birdlife.
Exploring the Riverland is easy because wineries, breweries, restaurants and food markets are only a short drive away.
This is a true nature experience that will refresh your soul.

What a gorgeous couple of days we had on this little paddle wheeler. Waking up to the birds, and a little mist over the river was just terrific. We had looked around for somewhere out of the ordinary and this was it. Not into those...More

Julie Fay has been redone completely and is beautiful. Nestled on the banks of the River Murray, it is right in the middle of bird and wildlife on the river with complete privacy. Stepping inside was amazing with the colours coordinated throughout the bedroom, kitchen...More

About the neighbourhood
The Renmark-Paringa-Murtho area is most known for its river access. The myriad creek and lagoon features of these world-recognised floodplains can be further enjoyed from a cliff-top look-out, interpretive walking trail, taking one of our dinghy cruises or following our kayak trail with complimentary kayak hire.

Activities you may enjoy:
Swimming and fishing from the deck.
You will have complimentary use of a double kayak (or single kayaks if preferred) with a map to explore the creeks.
