Things to see and do in Renmark
Once you've booked your Renmark Accommodation, you'll want to start planning your holiday. Check out some of these things to do in Renmark:
Begin your stay in this friendly town with a cruise along the Murray. The luxury houseboat-style Big River Rambler makes daily two-hour cruises from the wharf, while the historic PS Industry fires up on the first Sunday of every month. It’s one of the few remaining paddle steamers from the busy river trade days.
Attractions in Renmark
Olivewood Estate - The watershed in the town’s history was the development of the irrigation schemes in the late 1880s that turned this countryside into Australia’s food bowl. The Canadian-born Chaffey brothers are often called the founders of Renmark. Their original home, Olivewood, is now a National Trust museum and gives an important insight into the history of the town.
McCormick Centre for the Environment - Three kilometres outside Renmark is the McCormick Centre. It includes an interpretive model that shows the enormity and importance – and workings – of the Murray-Darling Basin.
Wildlife Park - There’s adventure of a different kind at Bredl’s Wonder World of Wildlife: one of their informative guides will allow you to feed and hold a massive python!
Rose Garden - As well as ideal for horticulture, Renmark’s climate is perfect for roses and from September to July the main street is flushed with blooms. Ruston’s Rose Garden is the largest rose garden in the southern hemisphere and hosts a glorious mix of modern and heritage roses of all kinds and colours. All things “rose” are celebrated in October in the town’s nine-day Rose Festival.
Chowilla Station and Reserve - Just 40 kilometres from Renmark, where the outback meets the river, are a wealth of natural, historic and cultural experiences. Go with a group and stay in the Shearers’ Quarters overlooking the Murray River, hire a canoe and explore this pristine natural bushland or discover this peaceful location on a houseboat. Camping and tours are available.
Wine and Dine
Sample the local drop at Renmano and Angove Winery cellar doors. You can also get a taste of the region’s great food and wine at many of the restaurants, pubs and the community club. Renmark Hotel is a good dine with great river views.
Take a stroll along the Renmark riverfront interpretive walk. This easy five kilometre walk (also suitable for bikes) interprets historical information about the town and river. An extension of the walk takes you to the nearby town of Paringa.
Discover the backwaters of the Murray on a backwater dinghy tour. You will see a very different side to this great river.
Learn to Ski
Don’t miss this great opportunity to walk on water. Learn to ski or wakeboard in Renmark (by appointment).
