Image Anne - anchored at Murwillumbah, the only 12-berth houseboat that can travel this far up river
Image Anne is a lovely spacious houseboat and with a maximum capacity of 12 is great for families, larger groups or just those who like the extra room.
When entering Image Anne you feel like you are entering a holiday unit. Stroll down the hallway and you will find 3 bedrooms, two with double beds and the third a bunkroom with 4 singles. If you need the extra beds, there is also a double trundle bed and double futon in the lounge room.
The bathroom is located off the hallway and has dual entry from the main bedroom. Walk further through to your back deck and the stairs that led you to the upper deck. On the top deck you will find sun lounges, an outdoor setting perfect for those outdoor meals, together with a custom built stainless-steel BBQ. From here you can also drive the houseboat from her flybridge, so your captain is not left out of any activities.
