Riverland

The Riverland is where the cool waters of the Murray River feed wetlands and floodplain forests; where warm sandy landscapes are transformed into carpets of vineyards, and citrus and almond groves

In the birthplace of irrigation, discover ‘river time’ – a relaxed pace of living where Riverland days stretch before you full of possibilities.

A combination of spectacular nationally and internationally-listed conservation reserves, a thriving fruit industry and the rush of water sports, makes the Riverland a place to keep the whole family entertained.

Explore the meandering waters of the Murray River, cruise past ochre-coloured steep cliffs and navigate through the oldest lock and weir system along the river. With a myriad of vessels to hire, from canoes to luxury houseboats, and a number of historic working ferries, getting across or travelling along the river is easy.

Peel back the skin on a white peach, savour the world’s sweetest oranges and sip local wines or a beer as the sun goes down – the local produce is outstanding, whether it’s from a roadside stall or the Renmark Hotel.

See living history as you watch the 1927 built lifting span bridge in Paringa, or find environmental innovation at the Banrock Station Wine & Wetland Centre.

Whether your passion is trekking through national parks, photographing stunning native birds, marvelling at the history of paddle power, or simply playing a round of golf, find out why people keep coming back to the river.

Drop a line and relax aboard a houseboat, visit rose gardens and a lavender farm, and get out on the water any way you can. Be sure to set your watch to ‘river time’ and enjoy the unexpected pleasure of a Riverland stay.
