We've had some time over the Christmas holidays to get a few more videos done. This is Episode 7 which can be watched on youtube here
We flew into the Murray Bridge Aerodrome, which is in close proximity to the Murray River. The Murray is the 3rd longest navigable river in the world after the Amazon and the Nile. It's a lesser known Aussie icon winding through some impressive Aussie scenery.
There are towns spotted all along the Murray, rather then bridges there are ferry crossing in pretty much every town.
We spent 8 day with family, on a luxury houseboat exploring the River.
The Murray was once a highway for boats transporting goods to inland Australia. In recent times boats have been replaced with trucks and trains. Today the Murray is only used for recreation. The most popular activies are fishing, skiing and houseboats. We spent most of our week skiing.
Next stop Kangaroo Island... it's off the bottom of Australia, just down from Adelaide.
We followed the coastline down from Murray Bridge, it was a spectacular view. The photos don't do it justice. The ocean was an impressive shade of blue, against the white sandy beaches it looked picture perfect.
Crossing over the ocean we reach the northern tip of the island. On the map the island is such a small spec compared to Australia, we got a bit of a surprise to see how big the island really is.
Our first look at the island as we fly over the top. Being an island we some how had an image in our heads of palm tree's, tropical white sandy beaches. What we found was more dry bush lands and beaches with white sand.
Another go around! 3 wind socks on the field and all pointing in different directions!
