Luxury, Romantic and Boutique Accommodation in Riverland

Step back in time in these historic river towns.
Get to know the Riverland from aboard a house boat or from land-based luxury accommodation

The great flowing artery of life for much of south-eastern Australia is the Murray River, which rises far to the east in the Snowy Mountains. As it flows quietly through South Australia’s Murraylands and Riverland regions, it provides the sustenance for innumerable orchards, vineyards, grazing lands and an astonishing range of native wildlife and flora. Any visit to South Australia should allow plenty of time to explore the river towns and bask in the shade of their giant red gums.

The Riverland region stretches from historic Burra near Clare in the west to Renmark and the Victorian town of Mildura to the east. At the busy inland port town of Morgan, you can pop into Angove’s and see where that old Australian favourite St Agnes Brandy is made. There is also a fascinating heritage walk that showcases the Murray’s history. At Kingston-on-Murray, stop by at Banrock Station to pick up some table wine and then visit the Wetland Centre, which features a very informative seven-kilometre wetlands walk.

Hiring a five-star houseboat is a popular and unique way of seeing the Riverland. Some boats come tricked out with kit that wouldn't look out of place in swanky hotels - bubbling Jacuzzis, sun-drenched decks, full kitchens and plush bedrooms. Float along the Murray without a care in the world, stopping off to explore bank-side towns, marvel at the limestone cliffs and eating under the stars. 

A set of wheels is just as good a way to get around the Riverland and your ride will take you inland to experiences not accessible by the water. Think public galleries and exhibitions, award-winning restaurants and local markets, festivals and events. 

However you choose to get around the Riverland, you'll be able to take your pick from a variety of accommodation options. There are rural station stays, historic homes, cottages made for two, contemporary apartments and more. Find the boutique stay that suits you from our Riverland accommodation, or look through the assembly of South Australia accommodation.
