“From the deck of the houseboat, the Outback vista is one of layers of reddened ochre sedimentary rock that form the riverbanks and jut up into the cloudless baby blue skies.”

“There is nothing else in the country that comes close to the River Dream Boatels in terms of style and refinement…Traditionally, a cruising holiday on the Murray River has had a rustic, Huckelberry Finn quality to it. With the River Dream Boatel, Huck has exchanged his fishy dungarees for designer jeans – without sacrificing a sliver of the natural wonders along the way.”

Postcards (SA)

“A warm glow peeps from behind the blind, hinting at a golden dawn, persuading me to emerge from under my down-filled doona. The window in my quarters reveals a perfect river scene – a flotilla of pelicans scudding majestically near outstretched river gums in front of a cliff painted vivid ochre.

The air is crisp and clear, with just a little mist rising further downstream. Nobody else stirs, so I press the “blind down” button and snuggle back into to bed.”
