Renmark, a great destination no matter what the season
Renmark was transformed by Australia’s first irrigation scheme, is 258km northeast by road from Adelaide in the Riverland. The dry climate and year round sun make Renmark and nearby Paringa a great destination no matter what the season.
There are galleries made for browsing, fruit stalls to stock up on the district’s famous products, beckoning wineries, billabongs and secluded creeks to explore by canoe, and fish and yabbies to be caught. The town is also well off for riverfront picnic spots. And be sure to set aside an hour or two to check out the thousands of varieties of blooms on show at Ruston’s spectacular rose garden. The lookout tower, part way along the road to Murtho and Customs House presents a panoramic view over the cliffs at Whirlpool Corner and the river plains. Renmark is a convenient launching pad for journeys into the region’s internationally significant conservation parks, including the Bookmark Biosphere.
RENMARK HOTEL is the venue for the Conference. You will love it! Opened in 1897, it was the first community owned hotel in the British Empire.
Do you need to rest and recharge? Would you like a romantic honeymoon, aholiday with the kids, or are you visiting the Riverland for business? The Renmark Hotel can cater for all your accommodation requirements including room size, style and, importantly, your desired level of comfort.

Mallee Estate Winery
Peter and Eleni Markeas migrated to Australia from Kardamili in Greece in search of a better life.This sunburnt country that they fell in love with gave them the opportunity to work towards their dream of owning their own vineyard and making wine. After 30 years of experience developing their vineyards the family focus has expanded to producing quality wines. Now the Markeas family would like to share their dream with you.
Jim Markeas manages the Mallee Estate Winery where he produce all our wines onsite from estate grown vineyards in the Riverland region of South Australia. The Riverland is Australia’s largest wine region where it produces approximately 50% of South Australia’s wine. In 2015 he was awarded Riverland Winemaker of the Year. This prestigious award was presented to Jim Markeas at the 2015 Riverland Wine Show. “We specialise in branded wines for the Australian and export markets. Mallee Estate Winery currently exports to China and USA.” Jim proudly told us.
Mandy Pearce works for ac.care as a Placement Support Worker. Her role involves placing children with foster families, then supporting these families through the placements. Earlier this year, Mandy took her work home with her in the most literal sense, when she and her husband became foster carers for a 7yo boy. He is the youngest of the couple’s six children.
Dave Badram has been a physio since 1992 working in both public and private settings. During this time he has worked with a broad range of clients from the aged to young children, from the sedentary to the sporting populations and all groups in between.
“I have been involved in Industrial Physiotherapy in the Riverland doing work site assessments, manual handling training, functional capacity evaluations and pre-employment screenings. I have now run my own private practice in Berri for the last 18 years and am lucky enough to have my wife working with me. Helen is a lymphoedema therapist and together we are able to offer a unique service to our clientele with both management of pain and swelling. Four years ago we set up a community gymnasium from which we run seniors fitness classes and general Pilates classes.”
James Johns – Eyes Open Ride
“I am riding my motorbike 18,000kms around mainland Australia (including Tassie) to raise funds, awareness and support for the battle against child cancer,. Dropping in a hospitals, and care centres in every capital city of our beautiful country. I leave from my home town of Paringa in country South Australia and set off on a clockwise loop around Oz.
“I am doing this ride in memory of my late father, Paul, who passed away in 2015 after his own battle with cancer In Dad’s view, and certainly mine, cancer in children can be a darker tragedy. Kids who may face an uphill battle to grow up and have families of their own, and parents who experience the pain of watching their child suffer.
“When my father passed, a friend of his, Steven, wrote an amazing letter to my family. In this letter, Steven retold many stories of growing up with my Dad. In one of these stories, Steven shared how he and Dad had planned to ride around Australia on their motorbikes when they were younger, and how he planned to lobby Dad to do this when he got better.
“Dad never got better, but reading this letter planted the seed for this idea and I will be doing this ride in Dad’s memory. I have always believed that if you have the capacity and means to help others, you should.”
