Rat from The Wind in the Willows may have said “there is nothing — absolutely nothing — half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats”, but at this floating tiny home on the Murray River in South Australia you don’t need to cast off the bowlines or pop on a captain’s hat.

You have all the ambience, all the views, of a stay on a houseboat without having to navigate your way down river.

Moored permanently in a small harbour at Murray Bridge in the Adelaide Hills, The Cube Murray River takes everything you think you know about shipping container conversions and tiny homes and floats it – underneath the dappled light of the willows that drape themselves over the river bank.
