The good life flows naturally in the Riverland. The majestic, meandering Murray washes away your stress and the genuine warmth of the locals is expressed in sunny smiles. Not surprising, really: the sun shines here more hours per year than on the Sunshine Coast. The Mediterranean climate it produces nurtured the nation’s food bowl with citrus groves, orchards and vineyards stretching as far as the eye can see.
The river winds its way into your heart and through the magnificent red gums and ochre cliffs, beckoning you with houseboating, fishing, swimming, canoeing, skiing, bushwalking, bird watching and fabulous shady places just to sit, ponder and reflect.
Its oldest settlement, Renmark, is a vibrant township with the scale to embrace a rich diversity of festivals, sports and culture. Charmingly steeped in history, it still offers every 21st-century service, facility and shopping option you’ll need with restaurants, wineries, galleries, farmers’ markets, museums, paddle steamers, golf courses (Renmark is one of five international-standard courses throughout the Riverland), hot-air ballooning, tennis, theatre (yes, real theatre) and a cinema all nearby for your entertainment.
