About our home

We built our home in 2000, it is a spacious home with huge decks to enjoy the outdoors. We are overlooking the River Murray in South Australia right on the border of the three states Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia.
The main town nearby is Renmark. We are a three hour drive from Adelaide.
Our home has large bedrooms and three main living areas with a huge kitchen.
We are surrounded with native wildlife, birds, kangaroo, emu and more. 500 meters down our drive is the river great for swimming and skiing. There is a boat ramp there.
Its great for walking and exploring.
