Welcome to the Garden City of the
Riverland, Loxton. It was here that the

heroic bank rowed downstream past this spot on their great journey
on 30th January 1830
It was also here that another plaque commemorates the first reunion
of the Loxton family descendants of Albert Rich Loxton, who arrived from
Somersetshire, England, in the sailing ship Elgin, in the year 1841.
