Murray River Romantic Getaway at The Frames

She goes on to write...

"And the Edmonds have the answer: chef Stefano de Pieri’s original Gondola on the Murray. Star of the ABC television series of the late 1990s, this jaunty little wooden boat now docks near The Frames and is all yours for a sunset cruise.

Nothing could be finer than chugging along, quaffing a Whistling Kite biodynamic chardonnay, made just up the road, while swans and pelicans drift by and a paddle steamer sounds its horn before sending out a broad wake to rock our little boat. Rick snuggles the gondola close to shore so we can observe koalas nibbling on saplings, before pottering upriver. Sunset and the red gums are silhouetted like paper cutouts against a tangelo sky...

...Lost in a watery labyrinth we noodle along for a couple of hours, a million miles from modernity, a zillion miles from the nearest remote control. Heading back into the broad, fast-moving river feels for a moment like entering a motorway. Further upriver we branch off again to dock at Wilkadene, Australia’s most picturesque boutique brewery, housed in an old shearing shed above the river."
