Renmark is Australia's oldest irrigation town, settled in 1887 and pioneered by the Canadian Chaffey brothers who reached an agreement with the government for a grant of land on which to test their innovative irrigation scheme. The scheme proved very successful and to this day the town and district flourish using water pumped from the River Murray to irrigate the vineyards, orchards and other crops that line the river here.
The Renmark Paringa Visitor Information Centre is a very good place to start when visiting town. Be sure also to see the fully restored 1911 paddlesteamer PS Industry, moored close to the centre.
