A 2.5-hour scenic drive from Adelaide, the town of Barmera is a local treasure that’s also known as ‘The Jewel of the Riverland’. Barmera is an ideal retreat for all travellers, whether they’re seeking relaxation or recreation.
The town is located on the shores of the area’s local attraction, the freshwater Lake Bonney, and it’s here where locals and visitors can frequently be spotted fishing, canoeing or taking in the lake’s renowned sunset vistas. With a warm Mediterranean climate, Barmera’s diverse regional food and produce is also a headline act. For travellers after a gourmet getaway, local highlights include the Banrock Station Wine and Wetland Centre and Flavours of the Riverland.
While a popular seasonal destination with travellers, the lakeside village retains its charming community spirit year-round and hosts a number of anticipated calendar events including the Riverland Field Days, the Twilight Easter Market and the Running of the Sheep.
