Located in South Australia’s Riverland region, Renmark is near the Murray River and surrounded by rose gardens and historical sites, so unwind in one of our Renmark hotels.
Slow down and smell the roses at Ruston's Rose Garden, the biggest rose garden in Australia. The fragrance is intoxicating and it will bring out the romantic side of even the biggest tough guys. If you find that the romance has been turned up a notch after visiting the garden, why not take your honey to see a play or catch a movie at the Chaffey Theatre? After that, you could take in the views and gaze at the stars, at the Renmark Township Lookout.
If you're here on the first Sunday of the month, you'll get to watch the paddle steamer, PS Industry, cruise along the river between 11:00am and 1:30pm. A holiday at the end of March will allow you to watch, or participate in, the Renmark Triathlon. Come in April and you can attend the Angove Family Winemakers' Market Day. Or, at the beginning of July, you can browse the Renmark Riverfront Markets. No matter what time of year you're here, you can always check out the Argo Barge, the Murray River's biggest barge. Although it's out of work now, you can see the barge, which was used in the 1920s, on the river's edge. If you'd like to learn more about the town's heritage, head to Olivewood History Homestead and Museum, home of some of the early settlers in the 19th century. On the other hand, art buffs will be fascinated by the bushranger ceiling mural at the Frank Harding Collection Gallery.
