Australian Traveller Magazine’s 100 Great Australian Holiday Homes

Winding over 2000km through five different contrasting landscapes, the Murray River is an iconic Australian region, and it’s no wonder that the extensive and enriched river land area – scattered with fruit farms, vineyards and picturesque towns – is such a popular holiday destination.

The Manor looks directly out to the red cliffs at Blanchetown, northeast of Adelaide, and has landscaped green lawns sloping right down to its private-access riverbanks. Perfect for large groups and big families seeking a quiet spot to reconnect, relax and enjoy water sports or a spot of fishing, the two-storey house has six bedrooms, a partially outdoor kitchen and dining area, two expansive decks and a homely wood fire for colder nights.

And if you really want to just let it all go and enjoy the surrounds, you can even engage the services of an in-house chef and waitress to ensure the perfect gourmet experience.

Details // 97 Page Drive, Blanchetown, SA. From $550 per night, 0447 263 549.
