RIVERLAND

Majestic cliffs, beautiful parks & amazing landscapes With the Murray River weaving its way through majestic cliffs and splashes of lush greenery, there are plenty of reasons why the Riverland is such an iconic South Australian holiday destination. From Blanchetown to Berri and Barmera, there are plenty of spots to explore in the relaxing Riverland region. Spend the morning competing against the locals at the Renmark Golf Club, enjoy a filling lunch at Mallee Estate Winery and then settle in to watch the sun set upon the river’s raised red cliffs. If a more exciting adventure is what you’re after, then make the most of the massive Murray River. Grab a kayak and explore more hidden spots, water-ski your way up and down the waterway or give kite surfing a go. Make the most of your location and settle yourself on the water in a comfortable houseboat or secure a spot on the riverbank and watch the variety of boats go by. For those after an even more unique form of accommodation, take a step back in time on board one of the Murray’s iconic paddle steamers.

YORKE PENINSULA A break as relaxing or as active as you choose

Venture that bit further from the city for a relaxing coastal escape on the Yorke Peninsula. From catching some surf to wandering through local art galleries and exploring the region’s interesting past, there’s plenty to do in this area affectionately known as ‘Yorkes’. Make the most of the fresh seafood available at many local eateries, such as the Wallaroo Coopers Alehouse, before visiting Barley Stacks Wines (the Yorke Peninsula’s first cellar door) for a tasting. Stop by Port Broughton to experience Palate to Pallette where you’ll find freshly-brewed coffee paired with inspiring local art. Immerse yourself in the area’s history with a visit to the abandoned historic remains at Inneston Village, of what once was a thriving mining town, as well as the remains of an abandoned gypsum town along the Inneston Historic Walk. Dive or drive and experience the Investigator Strait Shipwreck Trail which starts at Edithburgh and winds its way around the coast to Innes National Park. Here, you’ll find an abundance of wind-swept landscapes and local wildlife that can be safely explored via both easy walking trails and four-hour treks.

There are also plenty of day trips from Darwin including a visit to Litchfield National Park and its abundance of waterfalls, massive Cathedral Termite Mounds and ancient Aboriginal rock art.
