A Special Roustabouts Event

Hawkesbury River Houseboat Holiday

8th to 12th March 2021

Update:  12 January 2020

The Waiting List has been exhausted and an upgrade from a 4 to 5 berth houseboat made.   No further boats will be considered unless 4 'active' members register for the event 

Update:  22 Dec 19:  

Rooms on these vessels are for couples. If a single person wishes to attend they need to pay the advertised rates for this event.

Update:  Due to unprecedented demand we have filled all boats and started a waiting list, all in one day. The 'Waiting List' is now in operation.  Two things will now occur.

  • If sufficient numbers register, the committee will consider organising another vessel, or
  • If sufficient registrations are not received and a member pulls out we transfer a registration to the boat the member left.  Transfers will be taken in order of registration receipt.
  • If no availability occurs we will have to cancel Waiting List registrations


Priority registration will be extended to members who actively, participate in musters, coffee mornings, dining nights and meeting. 

Non active members will be initially placed on the Waiting List

River Information

This is a special event for 13 couples wishing to have a ‘quiet’ holiday on the beautiful Hawkesbury River waterways in March 2021.

This event is outside our normal program and one you may not need your caravan for.  The location has secure car parking, but this is not included in this events cost structure.

We have tentatively booked three very large houseboats which accommodate 5 couples on Boat 1; 4 couples on both Boat 2 and Boat 3.

The cost of each boat varied little, so the total price of all boats and the security deposit has been divided equally between the 13 couples.  The security deposit for each boat will cover usage costs of fuel gas, sullage etc.

Expressions of Interest / Registrations can be accepted immediately. The $500 security deposit must be paid into the club bank account no later 1 February 2020.  The boats will be cancelled if we do not pay the security deposit when due.

Being a Club event, we have scheduled four payments into the bank account.

Registrations will start on Boat No 1 followed by Boat No 2 and then Boat No 3.  Deciding on who is on what boat can take place later by those attending.  You will also need to consider people to organise food, be ’captain’ etc.

And don’t forget

  • Fishing gear
  • Bait
  • Warm clothing
  • Enclosed shoes
  • Swimming gear
  • Hats and sunscreen
  • Medications
  • Linen & towels


This special event requires registrations and deposits paid for each boat.  If any boat does not receive full registrations by 1 February 2020, then the boat booking will be cancelled, and any payments made refunded to the members.

A waiting list is operating.

Registrations will be allocated to Boat No 1 in the first instance.

We are endeavouring to negotiate special rates.  If successful, the difference will be refunded or reflected in your final payment. Updates will advise over next few months.
