With Lake Burrendong changing dramatically in size and shape after relentless flooding rains, owner operators of the dam’s resident houseboat Aaron & Paula Clifford, told Dubbo Catches The ‘Miss Macquarie’ is gearing up for a long hot summer hosting fishers, skiers and sightseers.
Since being set afloat on Lake Burrendong’s waters in 2012, The Miss Macquarie has hosted countless families, fishing enthusiasts, and even the odd celebrity like Andrew Ettingshausen for an episode of Escape with ET.
Owner operator Aaron Clifford told Dubbo Catches that “Lake Burrendong Holiday Park is a year-round attraction for fishing enthusiasts, nature lovers, bushwalkers, campers and picnickers.
Some of the best scenery in NSW can be viewed from the many walks through Burrendong and Mookerawa”he said.
“We have people come on board who just want to fish from sun up to sun down, and then those who just want to sit back and relax with a book, or even go prospecting and looking for gold in the creek beds and hills”.
With plenty of water available to explore, the impoundment is now holding over three times the water of Sydney Harbour, and makes for an exciting destination for those wanting some privacy and seclusion away from the city life.
“Our boat sleeps nine people in total, and is fully air-conditioned, so we invite people aboard year round to enjoy some time on the water” Mr Clifford said.
“With the dam full to the brim and looking fantastic, we are anticipating visitation at the dam to be quite high, as people come out to see just what an expansive dam it is at full capacity”.
The ‘Miss Macquarie’ can cater for 2 medium sized families or medium sized groups, 1 large or extended family, or 3 to 4 couples to cruise and stay for 2-7 nights. Miss Macquarie has been purpose built for comfortable and enjoyable skiing, fishing, rest and relaxation weekends or weekly stays.
