Lake Bywater’s beauty will astound you as you approach from Mannum only 15 minutes away and if travelling from Adelaide a mere 106 kilometres and well worth the day trip, you can travel from the Adelaide Hills through the magnificent Angas Valley or via Swan Reach and Nildottie on the other side of the River.
Aruma ski resort offers river shacks for rent and there is a luxurious and inviting B&B, Lake Bywater Cottage to experience.
The Walker Flat Riverfront Store and river reserve is a popular houseboat stopover with the magnificent cliffs as your back drop and the Walker Flat General Store around the corner is licensed for all your holiday supplies.
Walker Flat is a hidden river oasis and when travelling from Mannum is a superb way to head to Mildura through from Swan Reach.
