Adventuring documentary-makers James and Albany Livingstone paddled into Cobram-Barooga last week as part of thie adventure from the top to the tail of the mighty Murray River.
A ‘‘couple on a mission’’ is the phrase that best describes intrepid documentary-makers James and Albany Livingstone, who are in the process of travelling the length of the Murray River.
The Livingstones made landfall at Thompsons Beach on Thursday and although a little weary from their journey thus far, were enthusiastic about their enterprise.
‘‘It’s been majestic seeing all the wildlife along the river,’’ Mrs Livingstone said.
‘‘We have seen 13 platypus and a koala.
‘‘All our family and friends have been really supportive and are a little jealous, I think.
‘‘We have found all these secluded little beaches along the way and the river itself is just beautiful.’’
Mr Livingston agreed and added having the dogs along for the ride had its pros and cons.
‘‘It has been great having the dogs with us, especially since we’ve been camping in some pretty remote places,’’ Mr Livingston said.
‘‘The only thing is they can get a bit restless (on the water).’’
The Sydney couple have been filming their journey along the way and plan to produce a documentary about their experiences.
‘‘We both work in the film industry and have friends who will be editing the footage and doing some music (for the documentary),’’ he said.
‘‘It was quite difficult at the start, since we were paddling in white water that was quite turbulent.’’
The couple expect to finish their journey at Lake Alexandria in South Australia in April.
