Waterways, billabongs and river. Kingston-on-Murray is a small township (pop. around 300) located 214 km north-east of Adelaide. It lies in the heart of a rich agricultural district and the area around the town is characterised by vineyards and orchards.
The town’s shady riverbank is perfect for picnics with free barbecues, chairs, tables and toilets, and a nearby general store for provisions.
Banrock Station is an impressive project that balances agricultural use and nature conservation. There’s an 8km boardwalk trail (3 self guided walking trails) through the wetlands and an impressive interpretive and wine-tasting centre that also serves light meals. In November 2002, Ramsar listed the Banrock Station Wetland complex as a Wetland of International Importance.
