Waikerie is situated in the Riverland region of South Australia, along the banks of the River Murray. Its reasonable proximity to Adelaide (180kms), excellent facilities and a climate ideally suited to outdoor activities make it an attractive country town in which to live and work, especially for families.
Some of the local facilities on offer include two supermarkets, a butcher, two bakeries, hairdressers, clothing stores, electrical goods, hardware and a newsagency. Eating facilities include several cafes/take away shops, restaurants, a hotel and club.
Waikerie has a Sporting & Recreation Centre including a large swimming pool and many sporting clubs such as football, golf, netball, basketball, hockey, tennis, cricket, bowls, soccer, softball, swimming, Little Athletics and dancing. Many employment opportunities are linked to viticulture, horticulture and agricultural industries.
