Our beautiful Murray River region has been hit with such hardship over the last couple of months, with river levels rising to incomprehensible levels, destroying homes and restricting access to businesses along the way.

While it’s good news that we’re finally seeing the water levels start to drop, this beautiful region still has a tough time ahead of them as they work to rebuild, repair and reopen.

If you’re desperate to help, but are unsure how to while  parts of the region are still restricted to visitors, we’ve got the solution. Brand SA has partnered with Shop Local SA to bring over 50 businesses from the Riverland and Murraylands together on one online marketplace, so you can shop to show your support. Buying directly from local traders is a great way to drive much-needed sales, while still experiencing the one-of-a-kind goodies and produce from the Murray River regions at home. What a win!

The Murray River regions create soooo many goodies and experiences including award-winning wine and gin, delicious honey, olives and almonds, spectacular holidays and unique accommodation. The hardest part for you is choosing what to buy! We’ve picked out just a few things that definitely have us clicking “add to cart”, but there are oodles more to choose from.

Here’s how we’d spend our perfect Murray River weekend, right at home…

919 Wines / Rio Vista Olives

Whip up dinner using the golden goodness that is Rio Vista Olive Oil, and pair it with a glass of 919 vino. It’s the perfect match!

And over dinner, why not talk about your upcoming trip to the Murray River regions – you can book incredible tours through Juggle House Experiences, and there are plenty of accommodation offers up for grabs too. It’s like buying a present for yourself, plus you’re supporting these businesses to get back up and running as fast as possible.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, sounds like the PERFECT Murray River Weekend right at home.
