After a brush with neighbouring boats, a waterfront restaurant and a tree, our Guides handle to discover a mooring and chill out into all that life on water has to supply, together with on board jacuzzis.
The Murray River is the house of high-octane water sports activities, so our Guides strive getting towed behind a ski-boat on a sea-biscuit. For much more revs, they’ve a go in a Dinghy Derby boat, a death-defying sprint across the river bends.
