House Boating on the Murray River


"Katarina" and "Simply Irresistable" could not resist taking sixteen of us cruising the Mighty Murray recently. These houseboats rival the comforts of a posh hotel, yet you are only a short walk from endless outback saltbush plains. We cruised past spectacular ochre-red cliffs, long white sandbars, river redgum forests and fascinating wet lands. In many parts of the river, our only neighbours were Kangaroos, Emus, Lace Monitor Lizards and an incredible variety of birds in an unspoilt River Murray Wilderness area.

Lazy feel to it...like me today...aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh...sometimes it's nice just not doing anything, isn't it?

Well, not exactly NOthing...drinking a brew and chomping on some tortilla chips!
