Waikerie

Waikerie - The Murray - South Australia

The Riverland town of Waikerie hosts an almost impenetrable screen of foliage with over a million fruit trees surrounding the town, making it the hub of the citrus and fruit industry in South Australia. The picturesque surroundings of Waikerie, located 173 kilometres north-west of Adelaide, is home to one of the most easily accessible sections of the Murray River in South Australia. This stretch of river lures visitors with a long standing love affair for the outdoors to get out on the serene Murray in a houseboat or for some watersport action. Take to the skies with the Waikerie Gliding Club for a joy flight over the sandstone cliffs along the river.

Admire magnificent views of the Murray from the viewing platform at Orange Tree Giftmania with local produce sales of souvenirs, citrus and dried fruits. Take in some local art exhibitions at the Rain Moth Gallery, chocoholics should head to Haven Hand and wine enthusiasts will love the cellar doors in the area including the Banrock Station Wine and Wetland Centre. There is an 18-hole golf course for a leisurely tee off and a scenic cliff-top walk to a lookout for sensational views of the Murray on the northern fringe of town.

Step outside the box and experience the romance of the Murray River Queen. Immerse yourself in the splendour of yesteryear sampling delicious food and then spend the night on the floating motel. Which ever way you decide to spend your time in Waikerie there is an abundance of pleasant diversions and distractions to encounter.
