Food and Wine
With abundant water and sunshine, it’s no wonder a visit to the Mid Murray region is an experience to savour.
In fact, just about every ingredient you can find on a pizzza – from cheeses to salami, tomatoes, onions and olives can be found growing or being made around South Australia’s waterways. The Mid Murray landscape is abundant in the production of citrus fruit and has a large potato and onion growing industry.
Plenty of picturesque dining experiences await throughout the region. Dine with water views, stop by a traditional country bakery, visit a family friendly pub or dine aboard one of the Murray River’s many houseboats, feeling the water slowly rock beneath you while indulging in local food and wine.
Boutique and smaller venues may require bookings, so it’s best to call ahead. For a spot of wine tasting, take a drive to Heward Estate Wines, which bottles under the name of Mannum Cliffs Wines, on East Front Road, Mannum, Burke Salter Wines at Blanchetown, the gateway to the Riverland, Caudo Vineyards at Cadell, Craneford Wines at Truro, Henschke Wines at Keyneton or visit the pop up Spook Hill Wines Cellar door at the Cadell Interpretative Centre.
