South Australia’s beautiful Riverland region stretches from Blanchetown to the Border. There’s more than 330 kms of Murray River to enjoy and, just like the river itself, the days can be long and lazy, yet packed with as little or as much as you want. So, whether you’re on the river, or nearby, why not dip a toe and discover all this incredible region has to offer.
The Murray River is the heart and soul of the Riverland and central to most activities. Water enthusiasts including skiers, wake boarders, paddle boarders and jetskiers will be rapt with how broad the Murray can be in many parts of the Riverland. For those who like their River time at a slower pace, cruising is the way to go, whether it’s lazing on a houseboat or stepping back in time on board a century old paddle steamer. You might prefer a day on the water cruising the river and taking in its charms while enjoying some local refreshments. Then again, maybe canoeing the river, picturesque creeks, and backwaters is more your thing? Or, why not hire a boat and some fishing gear and try your luck? Back on shore, River time options abound with exquisite food, regional produce, wine, and wine-alternative experiences like sampling a local ale, or an award-winning spirit. There’s also clifftop walks with stunning views, lock visits, ferry rides, and plenty of playgrounds and kids activities. Twitchers and nature lovers can rejoice because the Riverland is one of the best places in South Australia to camp and see an enormous variety of native plants and wildlife. If you’re into golf, there are six beautiful courses dotted throughout the Riverland where you might see the odd kangaroo hopping past on the fairways or while you’re teeing off. And if you’re looking to stay a few days, there are a multitude of accommodation options throughout the Riverland. Whatever your taste or age, bring your family and friends and experience ‘River time ’. #rivertime #myriverland
