This was the best experience I have had in Riverland by far! The creeks are miles long so you can never get bored, even if you are on your own. And you can spot kangaroos, pelicans, koalas, emus and much more on the shores. I...MoreThat's great Marco. Did you see the photo of the emus drinking from the creek? It was taken by the other couple who went out that day and we've put it on facebook

Wilkadene - Woolshed Brewery

Woolshed Brewery is located in the 100 year old woolshed of Wilkadene Station, once a thriving wheat and sheep station now converted into a craft brewery set on the banks of the stunning Murray River. We offer our range of award winning ales, 100% Riverland Apple & Pear cider and our infamous Hard Lemonade. Wilkadene now also has our own range of premium Riverland wines. For non-drinkers why not have a freshly brewed coffee from our coffee machine. We also have a range of soft drinks available. Being a 100 year old woolshed we do not have any kitchen facilities in place to offer cooked meals. We do however sell delicious local produce from our self serve area where you can create your own platter. We also encourage our guests to bring out their own picnics or make use of our free bbq facilities. Some busier weekends we will get in local caterers to provide meals. Keep an eye out on this page for updates. Woolshed brewery is open 7 days a week from 11am-5pm. We only close Christmas Day, Boxing day, New years day and good Friday.

Paringa Bridge

Reviewed By Ray F - Adelaide, South Australia, Australia

this bridge across the River Murray opened on 31/01/1927. It was originally a rail bridge but a traffic lane was later added on either side. The rail no longer operates in the area & that section has been converted for pedestrian use. It was one of the few steel Bridges across the River Murray with a lift span for the passage of paddle steamers & opens at 09:30 & 14:30 daily. When I attended I was lucky to see two house boats, several small vessels & the Paddle Steamer Marion pass through. This is an interesting experience to see an early 1900’s bridge in operation.

Ruston's Roses

Reviewed By Skyfox49 - Albury, Australia

The local Renmark tourist brochures encouraged us to visit Ruston's Roses, the "largest rose garden in Australia". The coffee and cake were nice, the classic car collection interesting and the well maintained rose display near the restaurant attractive, although nearing the end of their season in May. We also wandered around the large rows of roses on the extensive property and found it had an unkempt appearance however, in need of a major weeding operation. Perhaps this was because it was the end of the rose blooming season, but it did have a neglected appearance beyond the manicured proximity of the function centre where the wedding photos are taken.

Renmark Paringa Community Museum

Reviewed By Ray F - Adelaide, South Australia, Australia

located on the eastern end of the Paringa Bridge, this museum has lots of old machinery collected over the years from farms & fruit blocks in the area. It is a very interesting display. They have space for caravan parking & shaded car parks. There is a covered BBQ & picnic area plus a rear entrance leading to the River Murray for views of the Paringa Bridge & to the Bert Dix Park on the opposite side of the bridge. The various trucks, pumps, threshers & other implements give a good insight into the life of the early pioneers. Plan on spending about 1 hour here. The Paringa Bridge opens at 09:30 & 14:30 hrs daily so you can view river traffic passing under the bridge.

Renmark Club

Reviewed By Martin M

We were on the way from Adelaide to Mildura. We needed a nice lunch location with a view of the Murray river. For that the Renmark Club is great. Directly at the river with a nice view. The food was average and the service very friendly. We enjoyed the Easter Sunday and would come back again.

Olivewood Historic Homestead and Museum

Reviewed By Joy C - Warragul, Australia

Olivewood homestead, circa 1887, home of Charles Chafey, has been preserved by the National Trust with its magnificent huge palm trees lining the original driveway and olive groves, and is well worth a visit. The volunteers obviously take great pride in this property and it is being developed further with great enthusiasm. Many early artefacts are displayed with pride, including old fire engines and horse drawn carts. There are rooms of memorabilia and items of historical interest including two chairs which the queen and Prince Phillip once graced with their derrières!

Murray River Walk

Operating from Renmark, guided walking combined with peaceful cruising immerses guests in the landscape and reveals the pioneering history of paddle steamers and a new environmental stewardship. Guests encounter diverse wildlife and waterbirds along the river, creeks and old oxbow lagoons that meander through ancient redgum Forests dwarfed by spectacular red ochre cliffs. Three of the four days are spent walking on private property and conservancy areas with exclusive access. Guests spend three nights on unique houseboat accommodation that cruises to the daily walking destination. Nightly, their guides prepare three course dinners created from local food and wine, showcasing the produce of the Riverland. The final day offers the opportunity to cruise the river, go through a Lock and reach the state border. Winner of the 2017 South Australian Tourism Awards 'Ecotourism' Category

Reviewed By cajunnsw - NSW Australia

This walk has been recently added to Australia's Great walks, but it is so much more than just a walk. Our guides (or should I say hosts), Mick, Dean and Tony were exceptionally friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and ever helpful. After being picked up and briefed at the Renmark Hotel (great pre walk accom) we cruised down the river spotting wildlife and flora. We disembarked the cruiser, and walked about 12 kms along the Murray and surrounds. Lots of interesting stories, facts and history along the way. We finally met up again with the cruiser and cruised off to meet up with our accommodation - a very well equipped Murray River Houseboat. We were met with locally produced nibblies, and a choice of local wines / beers. After a quick shower we adjourned to the riverbank for a campfire, sipping local wines and eating more nibblies. Dinner was served, and it was spectacular. This company embraces the locavore ethos, and the food is first class. Over the 4 days you walk approx 40kms, but it is easy flat walking. Days 2 and 3 the walking is of similar difficulty, with an early start to see the sunrise on day 2. The food and wine just got better as we went on. Absolutely recommended to anyone who likes to walk during the day, and be pampered during the evening. We learnt a lot about the river and the history of the area.
