The Riverland has everything and more!

There’s plenty of things to do in the Riverland region. You can explore the remote waters of the Murray River by kayak, canoe or dingy. Take a cruise or tour, hire your own luxurious houseboat and see the beautiful ochre-coloured cliffs, stopping at towns, Banrock Station Wine & Wetland Centre and take in the local history and wildlife.

Riverland Ambassador and West Adelaide / South Australian football legend, Grant Fielke says, “The Riverland has everything you could ever want. People say they’re going to the Surfer’s paradise, but the Riverland is more fun. It has all the sport you could want to play, the sunshine, the river, great hotels, great people.”
