Loxton

Loxton - The Murray - South Australia

The charming air of vigour and vitality of Loxton will not be lost on travellers. Known as the 'Garden City' of the Riverland the town is a prosperous centre of one of the most valuable agricultural and horticultural regions in South Australia. Located on the south bank of the Murray River in the Riverland region, 246 kilometres east of Adelaide and 41 kilometres south of Renmark. All year round, the town explodes into a chaos of colours as a result of lovingly manicured gardens, a tribute to the heartwarming community spirit of Loxton. Returning servicemen from WWII were lured to the area due to the irrigated pieces of land where their efforts came to fruition and remain important industries for the towns prosperity today.

Visitors can gaze through a maze of traditions at Loxton Historical Village. This popular attraction displays a chivalrous homage of respect to the Riverland's pioneering history featuring more than 38 fully furnished buildings and sites in the styles of the late 1880's to the mid 1900's. Loxton Historical Village hosts regularly planned 'Alive Days' throughout the year where visitors are welcome to admire the proud origins of this country town.

The 'Tree of Knowledge' will give visitors an insight into the town's resilience with a history of flood levels marked on the tree, one of the few river red gums to survive the astounding 1956 flood. A source of much pride for the community is The Pines Loxton Historical Home and Garden featuring antique furniture and paintings.

Accommodation options are plentiful including the newly renovated Loxton Community Hotel, motels, farm stays, B&B's and caravan park on the waters edge.
