The Murraylands and Riverland region covers a diverse and fertile landscape, which is brought to life by the mighty Murray River and a community engrained in the land.
Spanning 36,000 square kilometres, our region is located between the Adelaide Hills to the west, and the Victorian border to the east. The Murray River runs from Renmark in the north through to Murray Bridge and the Coorong in the south. Our region benefits from easy access to metropolitan centres and interstate markets along key transport routes.
Known as the food bowl of South Australia, the Murraylands and Riverland is renowned for its ability to produce abundant high-quality, pest-free fruit and nuts, vegetables, grains, wine grapes, livestock (including pigs, sheep and cattle), and value-added products. Our fresh, clean food and beverages are enjoyed throughout Australia and overseas, with growing export demand.
The region is home to some 70,000 people and over 6,100 businesses. The major economic activity is primary production, accounting for 34% of gross regional product, and one in five jobs.
Regional tourism is also a major driver of regional development, with growing interest in our food and wine sector, and in nature-based experiences along the Murray River. Another growing sector is renewable energy, with $1 billion of new infrastructure to be constructed by 2020.
The Murraylands and Riverland has many advantages as a place for you to live, work, play and invest. We can assist you to make the most of all our region has to offer.
