The name Berri is taken from the Aboriginal word 'bery bery' meaning 'bend in the river'. Known as the commercial hub of the Riverland and set amongst a sea of vineyards, this popular riverside town and its surrounds host a number of attractions worth visiting.
Walk the meandering two kilometre riverfront from Berri to the popular recreational and camping reserve at Martins Bend. Stop in at Berri Estates, the largest winery and distillery in Australia, or Berri Direct for fruit juices, dried fruits and more.
Berri has a range of shopping facilities, accommodation and restaurants including the award-winning Mallee Fowl Restaurant, with good food served inside a former shearing shed filled with Australian memorabilia. For informal dining, try the modern Redgum Cafe, offering an alfresco experience on riverfront decking.
Just north of Berri is Monash Adventure Park. This fantastic family destination features giant swings, leaning towers, an exhilirating flying fox and more. Set amongst shady trees and water features, the park offers free barbecue facilities and free admission.
