The Great Escape

Well, as most of you know, we went on a fab holiday in September/October, and spent part of it on a houseboat on the Murray River.
Thought I would give the boat a little plug because it was very luxurious and the owners are such nice people!
Jules piloted the boat himself with no problems, and we were up and down the river for a week; we had to have the Paringa Bridge raised for us (which stopped traffic and impressed the kids) and went through a lock twice. All VERY entertaining.


We chugged past the SA/Vic border too..... saw heaps of wildlife including a big goanna which I didn't get a picture of.....


The boat was very safe for the kids, although you still have to have some common sense and watch them - so if you're thinking about a really different holiday, one so totally relaxing that you come home looking 5 years younger - this is IT!


  1. Wow Toni, that house boat looks gorgeous, how many people can one of those take?
    It looks like you had a fab time on your holiday, lucky you...

  2. What a terrific holiday. It must have been so relaxing. We have talked about doing a holiday on a houseboat up here in Queensland. Would love to do the Murray but it's too far for me to travel unfortunately. (Hugs) Keryn
