Murraylands…Adelaide’s lifeblood flows to the sea
G’day…from our Riverland neighbour in the north, the mighty Murray River takes a final turn at Nor’ West bend towards the Southern Ocean. It’s decisive move seems to allow the river to relax and broaden, carving, deep, ochre chasms through the limestone remnants of an ancient seabed. Bringing an oasis into this semi-arid landscape covered in mallee, the many stemmed vegetation that has adapted to such harsh conditions.
With it also flows our lives of character rich communities with a passion for fun, life and experience. It also nourishes our lives, providing a playground far from the frustrations of modern life – yet just an hour from Adelaide, you’ll discover the Murraylands. Come and discover our history. Connect with nature, experience the mallee or just cruise our soulful water….whatever you do, just enjoy yourself!
Our food is not set to show off... rather it nourishes the Soul and adds comfort like the food of yesteryear. Our food has not lost its attachment to a living culture / produce.
