Terms and Conditions

Booking policy

All reservations require a credit card to be placed on file prior to your arrival. If there are any incidentals or damages the guest will be charged the price for fixing the damages.

Any changes to reservations or cancellations will incur an administration fee of $39.00. All cancellations must be made directly with the business in writing. Upon cancellation, monies paid (minus any cancellation fees) can be credited to a client account for future stays. Any money transferred for future stays on a Corroboree Houseboat will only be valid for 12 months from the original reservation date. No credit or refund will be available for early departures or cancellations once arrived.

If you are required to change or cancel your booking due to COVID, we offer a flexible booking policy with the option to amend your booking or receive a credit to use.

Off-peak periods

Cancellations received more than 14 days prior to the reservation date, will receive a refund of monies paid minus a cancellation fee. Cancellations made within 14 days from the reservation surrender the bond (one night tariff). Any remaining monies can be refunded or applied to a client account. Cancellations made within 48 hours of the reservation, surrender all monies paid.

Peak and shoulder periods

Full payment may be required by a designated date; this will be supplied upon the reservation (approx. 30 days for peak and selected shoulder periods). Cancellations made before the designated full payment date will receive a refund of all monies minus a cancellation fee. Cancellations made after the designated full payment date surrender all monies paid.
