About our home

Paringa is approx. 280 kms from the state capital Adelaide. The drive takes around three hours from Adelaide and 8 hours form Melbourne. Our home was built in 2000. It overlooks the Murray River and floodplain.
We have a large kitchen adjacent to the family area, great for entertaining or relaxing. A separate lounge room and upstairs lounge area with large entertaining areas outside. There are shady verandas all around the house. Our garden is planted to mostly native plants and attracts local birds and wildlife we often have kangaroos on the lawn and in the garden, its not unusual to see emu and recently we had an echidna in the garden. There is a boat ramp very close and we have a spot on the river to water ski form and picnic at.
Westerly windows allow for amazing views across the floodplain, ever changing.
Main bedroom with ensuite has views across the river, as do two of the upstairs double rooms.
Our home a five minute drive into the town of Paringa, and five minutes to the unique Wilkadene brewery. The larger town of Renmark is ten minutes drive by boat or car, which is where we shop, and there are resturants and a hotel and club. Other local towns of Loxton, Berri, and Barmera are small rural towns servicing the Riverland area.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Our home is in a quiet location with four neighbours, but they are mostly hidden from view and not at all close. You can see houseboats and other river traffic from our front verhanda and lounge room. We are adjacent to world recognised RAMSAR wetlands where over 60 bird species have been identified. It is a lovely area to walk and explore, or put the boat in a and water ski, explore the creeks fish or relax. We often have kangaroos visit our garden.
