Milang, South Australia on Lake Alexandrina

Milang Banner Image

Surprisingly, Milang is the only town on the shores of Lake Alexandrina. It, like most river towns began its days during the paddle steamer era. A few buildings of the period remain along with the restored railway station and carriages. Artists have now taken up residence, but holiday time is when the town comes to life, being only one hour’s drive from Adelaide. Caravan parks are right on the water’s edge. Lake Alexandrina provides for sailing, windsurfing, power-boating and water-skiing, fishing and swimming.

Randell Dry Dock located off Randell Street in Mannum, was installed in 1873 by William Randell of Mary Ann fame. The dry dock was actually built at Milang, by A.H. Landseer, and towed across Lake Alexandrina by the steamer Nildesperandum. It was during the boom-days that the dock and wharf were used to their capacity due to a huge trading enterprise built by J.G. Arnold. The dry dock now has a heritage listing at the Mannum Dock Museum of River History.
