Loxton - Cities, Towns and Localities
Welcome to the Garden City of the Riverland, Loxton. It was here that the

Sturt Memorial commemorates Captain Charles Sturt and his heroic bank rowed downstream past this spot on their great journey of discovery,
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.

Loxton is situated on the southern bank of the Murray River and services the surrounding district. With a number of attractions including the Historical Village, it is also only a short drive northwest to the townships of Moorook and Kingston-on-Murray. Here you can wander Banrock Station's boardwalks, discover the Murray's backwaters and creeks with a relaxing cruise, sample award-winning wines or just relax and enjoy the country hospitality provided by a variety of accommodation venues.

A must to see, it will bring back memories of an era past and will educate children on how life used to be back in their grandparents and great grandparents time. Loxton's unique Historical Village is situated on the riverfront at Loxton in the South Australia Riverland, adjacent to Loxton's main shopping area.
Tree of Knowledge
• Marked on the trunk of this magnificent old river red gum are the river levels and the year they occurred. This simple flood indicator provides a great way of understanding the cycles and impact of the Murray System.
