This Floating Eco Pod On The Murray Is Your Next Weekend Destination

We recently outlined all the best glamping spots around Victoria, because we know that camping isn’t for everyone. But this Airbnb really takes glamping to another level.

“The Cube” is a refurbished shipping container floating on the Murray River near the town of Murray Bridge in South Australia. Sure, it’s a seven-hour drive from Melbourne (or you could fly to Adelaide), but it’s worth it.


Inside you’ll find a bedroom with a queen-sized bed, en suite with toilet and shower, a kitchenette, and a lounge area that leads to the deck which looks over the Murray. There's also a two-person kayak on board if you want to get a closer look at Australia's longest river.

There are shops nearby so you’re not too stranded once you’re out there, and it will set you back $250 a night.

Book yourself a night here.
