I don’t have any experience with boats will I still be able to take the houseboat?

Do I need a boat license?
No License Required.
Can I bring my speedboat and tie it to the houseboat?
Yes you can, in which case you may want to leave our dinghy behind please let us know. Please provide your own tow rope and bring some fenders with you, ensuring you don’t damage the houseboat.
Is there somewhere to buy Bait/Ice/food prior to getting on the boats?
The wonderful thing about Wangi is the excellent facilities, we have an IGA/Bottle shop, Bakery (amazing), Pizza shop (amazing), Petrol station, takeaway-shop (yummy fish and chips), coffee-shop Vita (with amazing food especially the Portuguese tarts). Wangi is just AMAZING, there is Ice and Bait also available in Wangi.
