The Captain's Cottage
Sleeps 2-5 people
The delightful Captain’s Cottage was once home to Captain Bill Drage, last of the River Murray’s iconic paddle-steamer captains.
Jim has sympathetically restored the buildings with consideration and authenticity. It is ideal for 2-5 people who love history, nature, free access to quality kayaks & trails and appreciate the yesteryear experience of amenities in out-buildings.
Within minutes of Renmark-Paringa, our property sits on the Murray River with easy creek access. One dog is welcome per stay.
The Captain’s Cottage is 350m from the Murray River, consisting of the original farmhouse and its out-buildings.
