Wander along the edge of the River Torrens in Adelaide's constantly-being-revamped Riverbank precinct and you might spy something strange: a fleet of round, floating vessels with smoke emanating from the middle, manned by people waving tongs. Are they boats? Are they barbecues? Actually they're both, and they're the best idea ever.
Yes, the BBQ Buoys (see what they did there?) boats combine the tranquillity of floating along the river with the joy of a sausage sizzle, with each circular boat kitted out with a gas grill in the centre. The boats range from couple sized right up to a ten seater, with hourly rentals starting at $69. BYO food and drink, or choose from a range of local beers, wines and ciders and pre-made ‘grazer platters’ of South Australian meats and other goodies – and yes, vegetarians are looked after too.
