Foxtale History

Foxtale was created over 25 years ago by John Reynolds – one of the owners of the houseboats – to name his first houseboat which eventually turned into Foxtale Houseboats fleet

When trying to think of a name, John noticed an Adelaide company called Fox and thought it was quite catchy. On doing some research, he stumbled across a classic French tale “Reynard the Fox” (c.1150).

Reynard is the French equivalent of Reynolds. Thus, Foxtale houseboats had a link to the Reynolds name. The cheeky fox appears on all the Foxtale houseboats.

About Morgan South Australia

Morgan is located on a bend on the Murray River which is also known as ‘North West Bend’ and is only 175km north-east of Adelaide via Gawler and Eudunda.

Morgan is a riverside town known for its historic wharf, and its importance as the busiest inland port in South Australia at the height of the paddle-steamer era and is now home to the PS Canally where a dedicated team of local volunteers are restoring it to its former glory.

Morgan is an ideal place to hire a houseboat, engage in a myriad of water sports, visit the Historic Morgan Museum, or take a relaxing stroll beside the mighty Murray.
