Griffens Marina

Find yourself as you float down the River Murray in our stylish houseboats.

Griffens Marina is the place to come to forget about modern day life, connect with nature, enjoy some time with family and friends, slow down, relax and just be.

Located just 90 minutes from Adelaide this riverside sanctuary is conveniently located on the Sturt Highway at Blanchtown. Once you turn off the highway and meander down the yellow limestone cliff’s to the welcoming riverfront where your vessel awaits, you can almost feel yourself shifting down a gear to the slower pace of life on the river.

It was this slower pace of the Murray River that first attracted Miriam and Don Griffen from their Merino farm in Burra over 16 years ago, and it is clear that their passion and knowledge of the river and region has only grown over this time.

It is this passion that lends itself to exceptional service and quality standards, with all houseboats equipped with modern decor and conveniences to ensure your stay is comfortable and enjoyable.

Exemplary customer service is part of the personal touch that Don and Miriam bring to your stay on a Griffen’s Marina houseboat, with the couple keen to educate and inform visitors of historical sites such as the Pyap tree, local events and the best views up and down the river.

It is this dedication to excellence that has many guests returning year after year to a small place on the river where time slows down and people get the chance to be just what they want to be – relaxed, refreshed and reinspired.

Awarded for outstanding achievement in the pursuit of quality tourism experience.
