Art Scene

Artists capture the essence of the Riverland landscape and its people in many art forms.

You can find work on display in public galleries or private studios.

In Waikerie head to Rain Moth Gallery, before you stop in at Illalangi Gourmet Foods to purchase local art and produce. Illalangi has a wonderful outlet where you can taste and buy a whole range of local product and view their new edible bush tucker garden that sits on the cliff overlooking the Murray.

We recommend making an appointment to see the private gallery space at Riverglen View Art Studio. Resident artists and hosts Clint and Liz Frankel offer a private tour of their own work and original and reproduction paintings of Gary Duncan.

Next head to Banrock Station Wine & Wetland centre for lunch and check out more local art work on offer. From Kingston you can head to Loxton and finish your day with a meal of locally grown  Murray cod at the Loxton Hotel.

Sprouts Cafe in Berri displays local art, has a local produce menu and great coffee. Then head on to Italo Vardaro's photographic studio just down the road in Berri.

Make an appointment to see Tony Smith Studio in Lyrup and cross the river on the Lyrup Ferry on your way.

Rustons Rose Garden in Renmark is a great spot for lunch and displays paintings and sculpture, including corrugated iron kangaroos and pelicans.

For something a little different, make an appointment at Aussie Eggshell carvers or view the magnificent Bush Ranger Ceiling Mural at the Frank Harding Collection, and finish your day in Paringa at the Goanna Hill Gallery.

Always see who is performing at the Chaffey Theatre in Renmark and if there's a show on, start your evening with an early dinner overlooking the river at the Renmark Club or the Renmark Hotel.
