Kingston-On-Murray - Cities, Towns and Localities

Located in the heart of the Riverland region, Kingston-On-Murray is situated on the south bank of the Murray River, just northwest of Loxton and east of Waikerie.

Named after Charles Kingston, who was Premier of South Australia from 1893-1899, the town offers shady riverbank areas for picnics and BBQs.

As part of the premium fruit growing region of Riverland, the town makes a great place to base yourself from which to enjoy the natural surroundings and cruises along the river. It is also home of the impressive restoration of bushland and wetland project by the Banrock Station Wine and Wetland Centres.

The picturesque Banrock Station property includes 3,400 acres of bushland and extensive wetlands that are being carefully restored to their natural state.

When the property was first purchased, over a century of rabbit and stock grazing, and timber felling had degraded native vegetation, wildlife habitats and floodplains. Lock’s controlling the ebb and flow of the river had interrupted the natural wetting and drying cycles, favouring feral European Carp and upsetting the local habitats.

Now, following passionate conservation work by Banrock Station and dedicated conservation groups like Wetland Care Australia, the wetlands and woodlands are carefully being rejuvenated. The re-introduction of natural wetting and drying cycles has spurred life. The replanting of native vegetation has reduced soil erosion, and provided homes for animals to nest. Fish barriers and drying cycles have significantly reduced the number of damaging European Carp. Importantly, native water birds are returning to nest at Banrock Station. Native fish, water plants, frogs, insects, birds and reptiles are once again contributing to the diversity of the River Murray.

Banrock Station prides itself in the tireless work done to rejuvenate the nature reserves on the property, and in the partnerships it has formed throughout Australia and 9 other countries around the world to improve wetland habitats for future generations.

By reading, using and discussing what we do, you are helping us to help others, because the more we grow, the more we can assist nature reserves around the globe.
