We wish to thank Hornsby Council for rent relief since April, the NSW Government for gifting us the small business grant and the Federal Government for the job keeper payments which has kept our staff employed and busy upgrading our boats.

Hawkesbury River Houseboats and Cottages for Hire

We wish everyone a happy New Year and all the best for 2021!

We are most fortunate that our area has not been affected by Covid19 lockdowns in recent times. Due to some interstate travel restrictions and lockdowns in parts of Sydney we have some packages become available between now and the end of January 2021. See full availability for January below.

Luxury Afloat now offers gift vouchers. These make an ideal gift for those who love to be on the water. An original fleet deposit would cost $500 while a Star Fleet deposit cost $1,000. This would allow the recipient to book any available dates of their choice and pay the balance on arrival. Call our office for more information.


Luxury Afloat is delighted to announce we are open again for business following the coronavirus closures. All NSW Government coronavirus rules strictly apply.

Luxury Afloat has been operating on the Hawkesbury River since the 1950’s and has been under new ownership and management since July 2013. We are only 50 minutes north from Sydney by car along the M1 (previously F3) or by train from Central Station to the Hawkesbury River Station, Brooklyn.

Our boutique and individually named boats ranges from small 6 berths through to 12 berths and are lovingly maintained. We pride ourselves on our customer service & safety standards.

We have recently added river cottages at Milsons Passage to our accommodation services. Situated at Milsons Passage, they sleep between 6 and 10 people depending on the home you choose. Our cottages are boat access only and have their own jetty and wharves. Like our houseboats they are a place where you can hide away from the hustle and bustle of the city crowds, in a fishing paradise, and pass your time boating, kayaking, swimming, bushwalking or simply relaxing by the fire reading. Additional luxuries include spa baths, high speed internet and Foxtel.

You can also hire eco-day boats from us in your cottage packages.

We have a wonderful team, who genuinely go out of their way to ensure your holiday is one to remember. From advice on the best fishing spots, to the clearest swimming holes, we know the River and are excited to share it with you.

Please give us a call to discuss our range of boats and houseboats and the river cottages and their availability. We are currently rebuilding our website for the benefit of our customers. Meanwhile, we are happy to email you photos and floor plans for our choice of houseboats and houses.
