Waikerie Information

The Riverland town of Waikerie offers one of the longest stretches of accessible riverbank in South Australia. The width of this stretch of the Murray River makes it popular for thrilling water sports, fishing, and relaxing houseboats.

Waikerie is surrounded by more than a million fruit trees, making it the centre of the citrus and fruit industry in South Australia.

Enjoy the town's 18-hole, bunkerless golf course. Take a joy flight with the Waikerie International Soaring Centre. Ride the ferry crossing or take the 2-kilometre clifftop walk from the ferry for spectacular views of the Murray River.

Drop in to Orange Tree Giftmania off the highway, where a spiral staircase leads to a 360° view of Waikerie and its environs. You'll love Haven Hand chocolate factory and the cellar door of Thomsons Woolpunda Wines. Behind the Rainmoth Gallery (a local artists and craft workers outlet) you'll find the Interpretive Park – an opportunity for children to interact with the science of irrigation.

Dine and stay the night on a floating motel - the Murray River Queen. Absorb great river views from its fine restaurant or on deck at the cafe where you can try some Riverland boutique wines. With 52 renovated cabin rooms to suit any budget, this will be an experience to remember.

The name Waikerie is said to mean "many wings", after the giant swift moth "wei kari", the name given by the original indigenous community. It’s an appropriate name, considering the teeming birds of the lagoons and wetlands that edge the river.

You'll find the Waikerie Visitor Information Centre is on Sturt Highway, Waikerie.
