Good Information

Imagination sums up perfectly what we preach…. when accessibility is done well, it is seamless. And, if you’ve never driven a houseboat before, the lovely Bob meets you on board to show you the ropes!

There are so many good things about this houseboat, including it being located at Mannum, as it’s easy to get to for a weekend away as Mannum is only an hour from Adelaide.
