Renmark is a friendly Riverland town that is home to Australia''s largest rose garden and hosts a glorious Rose Festival every year. It''s a great spot for some Murray River cruising. The houseboat-style Big River Rambler makes regular cruises from the wharf, while the historic paddle steamer Industry fires up on the first Sunday of every month. It’s one of the few remaining paddle steamers from the busy river trade days. The riverfront is also the base for several houseboat fleets, including the Liba Liba fleet. Original proprietor Ian Showell conceived the idea of a floating house while in Egypt.
