The Village, historic Loxton


The Village, historic Loxton has an aura of old world charm. When entering The Village you will feel like you have been transported back to the late 1890s when the Loxton township was just being developed.

Foundations for The Village were laid in 1970 when Loxton National Trust branch built a pug and pine replica of 'Loxton's Hut' - there are now over 45 fully furnished buildings and sites depicting and preserving the history and way of life of early Riverland settlers. Several buildings are home to the 1956 Murray River Flood exhibition, an amazing collection of photos showing the heartbreak and destruction.

For a glimpse of what early life was like, step back in time on 'Village Alive' days when a number of exhibits and machinery are operational, including the bakery, sheep shearing demonstrations, tractor parade and the blacksmith shop.

The whole family will enjoy The Village, historic Loxton.

Counterbalance


The Counterbalance sculpture was commissioned to acknowledge Loxton's 2007 Centenary and reflects the town's community spirit, celebrating the past and building optimism for the future.

The sculpture expresses a balance between opposing forces: light and dark, strong and vulnerable, earth and water, culture and nature as well as the strength of the human spirit and the developing town in the face of isolation, drought, war and prejudice.

Murray River National Park


The Murray River National Park is made up of three separate areas: Katarapko, Lyrup Flats and Bulyong Island.

Katarapko is just four kilometres from the Riverland town of Berri. Dominated by flood plain and containing permanent and semi-permanent wetlands, it is an important breeding area for many forms of wildlife. Explore its peaceful backwaters by canoe, relax on the riverbank watching the waterbirds. Hire a houseboat and cruise the river or set up a camp and immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of nature along the Murray.

Lyrup Flats, opposite the town of Lyrup, offers wonderful opportunities to camp, fish, take a ride in a dinghy or stroll along the floodplain.

Bulyong Island is another peaceful getaway, not far from Renmark. Western grey kangaroos, emus, pelicans, kingfishers and parrots have made the island their home and small boat users, house boaters and canoeists are regular visitors.

GPS enabled maps are available for this park, check the website for details.

Self-registration and payment for camping is available at the park.
