South Australia: How to drive a houseboat

Three days on our houseboat on South Australia’s Murray River was not long enough to all the relaxing I had in mind to do. Not to mention catch enough yabbies to make a meal out of, read my book specially downloaded on the new Kindle and have more than one dip in the onboard spa pool.

What I’ve done though is make my first ever proper, edited video with Brooke Fraser accompanying us on our 3 minute excursion up the river without a paddle and owner of Unforgettable Houseboats, Mark Flanagan, at the helm explaining just how easy it is to drive it yourself. It’s the parking that requires a bit more practice!

Hope you enjoy it!
