Riverland

Escape to a place where time doesn’t matter, where the meandering Murray River meets ancient ochre-coloured cliffs and feeds wetlands and floodplain forests. With ever-changing landscapes, delicious produce and a host of water-based activities, there’s so much to do and explore in the Riverland. Blanchetown, the gateway to the Riverland, is less than a two-hour drive from Adelaide with most major towns less than an hour away from there. The Riverland boasts numerous peaceful campsites along red gum-lined creeks and river banks. With more than 300 species of waterbirds and thousands of migratory birds that live around the Murray River, you’ll want to bring your binoculars. The Murray River, Australia’s longest waterway, offers a myriad of water-based activities. From wakeboarding to waterskiing and kneeboarding, when it comes to the water, the Murray is a water lovers’ heaven. The Riverland has 23 rich and diverse nature reserves. Gluepot Reserve is an international birdwatchers’ dream while Danggali Conservation Park and Wilderness Protection Area is Australia’s first Biosphere Reserve and has been sanctioned by the United Nations for its international significance. The Riverland also boasts two wetlands of global importance.

More about the Riverland

David Sievers

Set your own pace on a houseboat, the perfect way to experience the mighty Murray River, options to suit all ages and budgets. You only need to be over 18 and have a driver’s license to become your own houseboat caption. Over a quarter of Australia’s wine grape production happens in the Riverland with major wine grape varieties, such as Chardonnay, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, all thriving in the Riverland’s warm climate. Try your hand at fishing for the legendary Murray Cod. Growing to more than a metre it’s a prized catch, complete with bragging rights, but as a protected species they must be returned to the water after you’ve taken a photo for proof. Riverland towns of Barmera, Berri, Loxton, Waikerie and Renmark have a strong art scene with many galleries, exhibitions, and artists capturing the essence of the river’s landscape and its people in many art forms.
