How to see Australia.. by flying boat

A friend of mine who is a JetStar pilot and all round Indiana Jones type is also an inventor. Rowan Watkins invented the StopRotor technology which turns a helicopter into a plane and back... it means vertical take off and landing with full speed fixed wing flight speed in between!

Power to him... but back to my story. I ran the logistics of my plans to one day get a Flying Doctor plane (ie a Pilatus PC12) and follow the Australian coast line at 1500 feet to really see this wonderful continent.
Quick as a wink he countered with what he thought was a better idea and I cant get it out of my head.


Get on old flying boat (so you can land wherever you want) fit it out with a double bed and some long life batteries and a bit of a kitchen and really experience Australia.
Can you imagine a double bed in here? Looking out the buble windows of a night time?
