Our 4 night holiday was a resounding success. The staff were brilliant, very experienced and helpful. We would recommend Forster houseboats as worth every penny.

We regularly hire a pontoon boat, but due to this place buzzing sometimes its a wait while boat is prepared

My wife and I and our two teenage sons had an amazing time, for five days, on the 45' houseboat, Wallingat, on beautiful Wallis Lake in January 2023. Whilst the houseboat is relatively easy to control, Wallis Lake can be tricky to navigate because of shallow waters, narrow channels, the large number of other water vessels and holiday makers on the lake and silt relocation due to the 2022 floods. My wife and I were not particularly confident navigating the vessel. As it turns out this wasn't really an issue for the enjoyment of our holiday. The staff, Joel, Tessa, Charlie, Tim and Ferrero were sensational and simply could not do enough for all of us. When we wanted to move to a different spot, someone would come out and move us to a different location. The staff were never anything but friendly, helpful, extremely pleasant, informative and particularly safety conscious. In fact they are happy to move you every day to a different location if self navigation is not your thing in this large vessel. They even brought us out bait on one occasion which we felt was a stellar service! Fortunately we had hired an optional tender boat which allowed us to spend some time away from the houseboat exploring the magnificent waters of Wallis Lake. The Wallingat is an older vessel and probably needs a little bit of work inside here and there to make the experience even more pleasurable. Whilst the vessel sleeps 10, you may be a little crowded with this many passengers as some beds need to made up in the living and dining areas. The two permanent double beds below the deck however, were certainly very comfortable. None of this however, detracted from the wonderful experience we had on our holiday. This is an extremely reputable business with incredibly helpful and knowledgeable staff on the magnificent NSW North Coast offering a reasonably priced holiday, everyone should do at least once.

Had a great afternoon kayaking in a transparent kayak, friendly family business and very knowledgeable. They made my husband and I feel comfortable as we haven't been kayaking since our teenage years .
