Barmera - Cities, Towns and Localities

Considered the jewel of the Riverland, Barmera sits on the southern foreshore of Lake Bonney, a freshwater aquatic paradise.

Fed by the Murray River, via Chambers Creek wetlands, Lake Bonney is a shallow lake with a sandy bottom, offering safe swimming and a host of other aquatic activities ranging from boating, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, skiing, jet skiing and fishing. The region is also a haven for birds.

The foreshore has boat ramps and jetties, as well as gazebos, bbq sites and children's playgrounds. With the main street providing some great examples of Art Deco design, there are a range of speciality shops. Barmera is also renown for country music, playing host to the annual Country Music Festival.

Just 14 km to the east, along the Old Sturt Highway, is the town of Berri.
