UWA vehicle ferry out of the water between the 2-11 May 2016

Posted by in News | April 28, 2016

Dear guests/agents/drivers,

The UWA have contacted us to advise that between the 2nd – 11th May 2016 the Paraa vehicle ferry will be out of the water due to maintenance (perhaps they should just build a bridge?!). All agents and guests booked to stay with us during that time have already been informed, but we thought anyone planning on travelling to Murchison during those dates may require a head’s up too.

Many thanks
Murchison River Lodge

Hello!  Our reservations office will be closed during the festive holiday on the 25/26/31 December 2015 and 1st  January 2016.  To avoid any last minute disappointment please email through your accommodation enquiries outside of those dates (though we are fully booked on the 25/26/27 December.) Thank you and wishing you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Solar hot water!

Posted by in News | November 19, 2015

In all the thatched en-suite cottages and thatched en-suite safari tents we now have solar hot water.  This means the showers are hot, and with great pressure too!

Disclaimer – of course when it’s rainy season the occasional cloud cover can disrupt the temperature, but the showers are never too cold…phew!

Swimming Pool Open!

Posted by in News | February 20, 2015

Exactly one month ago our swimming pool had to be completely replaced. Two weeks ago the new floor was in and the walls were being constructed. As of today the shade frame still needs to be repositioned, but the pool itself is ready for guests to enjoy!
