Loxton  South Australia

Manicured flower beds and well-kept parks and streets have earned Loxton the title of Garden City of the Riverland. With a population of 6500, Loxton, which is 260km north-east of Adelaide, is one of the larger Murray River towns.

The town was originally known as Loxton’s Hut on account of a primitive pine and pub hut built on the riverbank by a boundary rider during the 1880s when graziers were pushing into the district.

The same bloke planted the old pepper tree which grows near the riverfront Historical Village whose 30 or so re-created buildings include a bank, bakery, sheds and railway station. The Historical Village fair is held over Easter during odd-numbered years.

The district was originally settled largely by German migrants, and there is a certain irony in the fact that prosperity followed on the heels of a land redistribution to Australian war veterans after World War II. Irrigation allowed those veterans of so many battles against Germans to prosper from the cultivation of grapes, citrus and stone fruit.
