Ramble ’round Renmark

South Australia’s Renmark boasts some of the best natural beauty of the Murray River and is worth a visit, whatever the season.

Nestled on the banks of the Murray River, continuous sun makes Renmark a lovely destination – spring, summer, autumn or winter. Whatever the season, Emma Mullin from the Renmark Paringa Visitor Information Centre has a suggested itinerary for spending a day in Renmark.

11am : visit Olivewood, the original home of the Chaffey Brothers who established Australia’s first irrigation colony in Renmark.
12.00pm : see Ruston’s Rose Garden,the largest Rose Garden in the Southern Hemisphere. Featuring a vintage car museum, gift shop and café, it is located at 70 Moorna Street.
