If you are looking for a home away from home during your South Aussie Riverland stay, then you need to check out The River Block! This riverfront accommodation in Berri has three bedrooms, a dishwasher, hardwood floors (no worrying about the kids ruining the carpet!) and lots of luxurious touches to make your trip both relaxing and comfortable.

The River Block is perched atop the riverbank of a private lagoon with so much fun to be had! Go kayaking (two are provided, just BYO lifejackets), do a bit of yabbying, or just sit back and enjoy the views. The kids will love frolicking on a stretch of lawn – chairs on the terrace means that you can sit back and supervise with a drink in hand while they play.

If you want to get out and explore, head to Berri which is just a short 7km drive away. Head up to the Berri Lookout Tower for some great views, take the kids to the Monash Adventure Playground or have lunch at one of the local cafes such as River Jacks or the Berri Hotel.

At the end of the day, cook up dinner on the BBQ, have a wine on the terrace and enjoy the sunset over the lagoon. Bliss! Don’t worry if it’s cold – the property also has a fireplace inside with board games to play – how cosy!

  • The Renmark Club is a brilliant spot to relax with a glass of wine and a meal. Its town centre and riverfront location is the ideal place to meet with family and friends and enjoy all the perks life out here affords. This extensive community club is attractive day and night and easily caters for the significant weekend crowd whilst simultaneously hosting a Wedding in the Function Centre adjacent. There are several sections to choose from for dining, drinking and catching up with friends. People gathered at the Sports Bar in the front, enjoying the numerous wrap around lounges and warming themselves by the fire place while they enjoyed their drinks and socialising. One look at the video games however and our boys beelined it to the sizeable and well appointed Kid's Room. We made our way outside and settled in on the well heated alfresco area and took a moment to enjoy a local bottle of bubbles. It has expansive views over the water and the calming and unpopulated tree lined riverbank opposite. Despite the growing crowd our meals were served promptly. The kid’s schnitzel was large but of course, still only an entrée to the ice cream dessert…

  • Eleni's Greek at Mallee Estate is a winery and restaurant experience all rolled into one, with a whole lot of history and family love keeping this wonderful Riverland business alive in the heart of Renmark. It often takes a family to create a family friendly experience and this is absolutely the case at Mallee Estate. As soon as we arrived at Mallee Estate we instantly felt at home. The grounds are well manicured and the wooden garden games sat out ready to go, indicating this experience was not just for adults but your children are wholeheartedly welcome too. There was giant Connect Four, Jenga and Finska to play. The staff greeted us warmly and as the weather was spectacular again up here in The Riverland, we made the most of it by setting up at a comfortable table outside. We were excited to be taking a guided tour of the Winery with Erica, our host and second-generation Winemaker Jim Markeas, whose parents worked the property for 30 years before beginning to make their own wines here in 1998. They were fantastic guides, and we really got a feel for the role as we saw the inner workings of winery, climbed…
