It’s easy to make your holiday an active one with a range of sporting and recreational facilities available.

Play a round of golf, have a hit of tennis, try your hand at social lawn bowls or let loose at one of the local skate parks.

The Riverland boasts six scenic golf courses with watered fairways and turf greens. Set amongst native trees you may see the occasional kangaroo or emu wandering through the course in the evenings and early mornings.

When you have played a round, relax at the 19th hole at Berri, Barmera, Renmark, Loxton and Waikerie club houses.

All major towns feature a lawn bowling club, some with regular social competitions on selected afternoons or evenings which are great fun and open to all. Tennis courts, particularly lawn courts, are located in most major towns and are also a popular feature of many of the motels and resorts within the region.

Clay target shooting is big in Renmark, Waikerie and Loxton with regular competitions hosted by the SA Field and Game Association. Renmark, Barmera, Loxton and Waikerie all feature Skate Parks to get the adrenalin pumping.

For those dedicated travellers wishing to maintain their workout regime Berri offers a 24 hour 7 day a week gym.

The Waikerie Recreation Centre also has a fully equipped gym, three squash courts and group fitness classes. Most Riverland towns offer gyms and Loxton now has a hydrotherapy pool for publis use.

Get active with the family or grab a group of mates from your local club and plan a getaway. With a range of accommodation options suitable for families and groups the Riverland is the perfect choice for ‘Play Time’.
