Riverland

Description

The Riverland is a region of South Australia. It covers the area near the Murray River from where it flows into South Australia downstream to Blanchetown. The major town centres are Renmark, Berri, Loxton, Waikerie, Barmera and Monash. Each of these are accompanied by minor townships, the total area comprising approximately 30,000 people. Many of the towns were established for the re-settlement of soldiers after their return from World War I or World War II. Most towns were established as separate irrigation districts.

The Riverland Region of South Australia is well known for large vineyards, numerous orchards and the mighty Murray River. This is a Fruit Fly Exclusion Zone and I was very careful not to carry anything in the car or caravan that may affect these important industries - quarantine books are available from most Visitor Information Centres.

We followed the Murray River through the Riverland Region and visited quiet a few points of interest along the way.  Some features of our trip:

  • Ferries that operate in South Australia to transport people, cars (caravans) and trucks across the river (various locations). This is a free service that operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • Morgan, a lovely historic town on the bend in the river.
  • Waikerie, try the Waikerie Bakery for great sausage rolls and call in to Nippys for fruit juice, fresh fruit and milk products
  • Banrock Station Wine and Wetland Centre - several walking trails, great food and wine 
  • Barmera and see Lake Bonney
  • Overlander Corner Hotel - historic pub with great meals
  • Berri - beautiful town on the River 
  • Berri Estate Winery - huge wine producer with large variety on sale at the cellar door
  • Renmark - larger town with walking/cycle trails along the river, rose garden, Olivewood Historic Homestead, lovely golf course
  • Angove Winery - now making wonderful Blind Tiger Gin
  • Paringa - just across the bridge from Renmark - friendly pub with really good food - try schnitzel night 
  • Woolshed Brewery at Wilkadene - visit by boat or car and have a locally brewed lemonade (10%) or one of the many beer varieties overlooking the Mighty Murray. 

These are just some of the highlights of our trip through the Riverland - one day I would like to return and hire a houseboat to enjoy other aspects of the Murray River like the many limestone cliffs carved out over time, and maybe even do some fishing.
