In the HEART of the Clare and Gilbert Valley lays the township of RIVERTON.
Set amongst the rolling hills and valleys, a town of gentle charm and history,
and is only a 90 minute drive from Adelaide.
The town owes its establishment to James Masters who stepped ashore on
Kangaroo Island before the proclamation of South Australia as a colony.
A town rich in agricultural history with many of the original buildings and
cottages a feature of early architecture, evident amongst tree-lined streets
that dominate the township.
This vibrant, unassuming country town is the largest in the Valley with a history
based around the development of the Railway line to Burra in 1869.
This delightful town continues to thrive as the commercial centre of a rich farming
district with the local community active in preserving many of its significant heritage buildings.
