What could be more romantic than rocking on the river (Hawkesbury, Murray or Mary), or lapping a lake (Kununurra and Myall)? Perhaps bobbing around at Rainbow Beach or Walpole Inlet? The thing about a houseboat holiday is, it’s a lot like hiring a holiday house for the week – and nothing like it at the same time. The slap and trickle of water against the hull lulls you to sleep each night; watery, misty dawns will make an early bird of you; evenings eating your catch of the day, or rowing the dinghy over to a picturesque jetty restaurant are simply relaxing. As time flows with the tide, you might even rediscover your moorings. (Sorry.)
