About the area

Berri is a town in the Riverland region of South Australia, 238 kilometres north-east of Adelaide. The town, which lies on the north bank of the Murray River, is primarily agricultural and viticultural.

Berri is surrounded by 3000 hectares of irrigated vineyards and orchards. It hosts some of the largest wine production facilities in Australia, including the juice company, Berri Ltd. Wine production at the Berri Estates Winery has been a fundamental part of Berri’s existence since 1918, making it one of Australia’s oldest wineries.

Berri is a multicultural town, with a café and hotel on the riverside, a main street that overlooks the river and other shopping facilities, including Riverland Central Plaza. The local cafes and restaurants are known for making great use of both the Riverland’s fresh produce and its multiculturalism; there is a weekly farmer's market, featuring not only fresh fruit and vegetables, but also showcasing foods from many countries, reflecting the diversity of cultures within the region.
