Easily accessible by car, The Riverland is just a quick 1 hour drive from GLENELG.
The Riverland is where the cool waters of the Murray River feed wetlands and floodplain forests; where warm sandy landscapes are transformed into carpets of vineyards, citrus and almond groves. Discover stories of bushrangers and ghosts at the Historic Overland Corner Hotel, see Australia's largest rose garden and sample delicious fruits, chocolates, nuts, lavender and wines. Hire a canoe or kayak and paddle your way through the secluded backwaters of the Murray River, exploring hidden secrets at your own pace, or take a guided tour.
With a number of historic working ferries, getting across or travelling along the river is easy. Today, 11 ferry crossings operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They’re free to use.
In Berri, pick up olives, dukkah, quandongs and a bottle of wine at the largest winery and distillery in the southern hemisphere. See how wine, food and the environment come together at Banrock Station.
Fishing is a popular pastime and callop, also known as golden perch or yellow belly, is a good eating fish. The legendary Murray cod is a prized catch. Growing to more than a metre long, the fish is a protected species and must be returned to the water - after you’ve taken a photo, of course.
