Lifestyle, lifestyle, lifestyle are the words that best describe why the Murraylands and Riverland is such a great place to live, work, play and invest.
Warm dry summers and relatively mild winters make it possible to take full advantage of life, all year round, in one of the most beautiful, naturally diverse regions in Australia.
Some 70,000 people live across our region, with the majority located in one of our seven major towns, Murray Bridge, Mannum, Renmark, Berri, Barmera, Loxton and Waikerie.
Our region is diverse and expansive, providing abundant opportunities for you to explore and craft your own way of life. The diverse landscape and river, the people, the produce, and the sense of regional pride and community spirit make this a place you’ll want to call home.
Residential property prices are substantially lower than the South Australian median, and offer a mix of building and construction styles. Choose from wonderful old stone villas with large rooms, tall chimneys and high ceilings, or ultra-modern, open-plan, energy efficient spaces. You can also take advantage of the region’s buoyant housing construction industry and build your dream home.
Each major town has a vibrant retail area, from the charm of traditional main street precincts filled with small local businesses, through to modern plaza style shopping centres with multi-national retailers and major supermarkets.
Local farmer’s markets, together with the many roadside produce stalls scattered throughout the region, offer an impressive array of locally-grown fresh fruit and vegetables. Hotels, clubs, restaurants, cafes and take-away outlets are shaping an emerging vibrant food and wine scene.
We have a strong sporting culture, with multiple turf ovals, golf courses, tennis courts, bowling greens, netball courts, stadiums, recreation centres and swimming pools across the region. Other recreational opportunities abound, including bushwalking, fishing, boating and water-skiing.
The region has a community spirit to be proud of. The quality of life is greatly enhanced with the countless volunteer opportunities that make many of our regional events, activities and services possible. There’s a host of avenues for social interaction and community involvement, and new faces are always welcome.
The region is also well-equipped with excellent medical services, hospitals, schools and learning facilities, aged care facilities, service sectors, and shopping precincts.
