Wellington, South Australia: On the Banks of History

The small town of Wellington may only have 300 inhabitants today, but it was once a gateway to the Murray River. In fact, Wellington is one of the oldest towns in the state. Many testimonies to mid- 19th century affluence remain, from stately buildings to mansions along the waterfront.

Soak up the heritage at a museum, hop aboard a historic ferry or simply take advantage of the waterways to do some boating, fishing or jet skiing. Not far from town, the Murray River flows into Lake Alexandrina, where you’ll find plenty of spots for swimming. Back on dry land, discover native flora at one of the reserves or gardens.

Holiday rentals in Wellington range from cosy apartments to family homes and even houseboats.

Wellington boasts a series of heritage buildings dating back to 1841. Travellers can wander the streets to discover some of the national trust properties, including the Wellington Court House, which is now a museum. Top off your visit to the courthouse with a light snack in the tearoom.

For more local history, make your way to the remains of the East Wellington Hotel, which has also served as a post office and telegraph station. Find out more about the lives of past Wellington inhabitants at the Poltalloch Homestead, which encompasses a mansion, working farm, stables, barns and a woolshed. To delve deeper, join a guided tour of the homestead.

Exploring the Waterways near Wellington

As Wellington is set on the banks of the Murray River, visitors have easy access to many water-based activities. Get your bearings by hopping aboard the free ferry, which crosses the river at Wellington. This ride is steeped in local history, as it was the first, and most important crossing of the Murray, in operation since 1839.

Boating is a favourite amongst Wellington locals and visitors, with boat ramps for public use. Wellington is just a short distance from Lake Alexandrina, a freshwater hub for water sports. Popular options include sailing, water skiing, jetskiing and more. If you’re planning to swim, head to the Milang Pier, next to which is a beach.

Nature and Walking around Wellington

Get some fresh air at the Burrendong Botanic Garden and Arboretum, as you discover many Australian plant and tree species, from rainforests to fern gullies. Self-guided tours let you take in the park’s gardens, with plenty of spots for picnics along the way. On the fourth Sunday of each month, the gardens offer a free 4-hour guided tour.

The botanic garden is set next to Lake Burrendong State Park, with plenty of trails for bushwalking and spots for fishing. Right in Wellington, meanwhile, the Pangarinda Botanic Garden awaits, with plenty of paths to stroll amidst threatened and endangered plant species.

Wellington: In Town

Wellington is a very small town, but travellers will still find enough to explore for the afternoon. Start off by making your way to the Wellington Marina for views over the Murray River. Along the foreshore, an expansive playground awaits, with BBQ equipment and picnic tables nearby.

In the evenings, unwind at the historic Wellington Hotel, which has been in continuous operation since the middle of the 19th century. Enjoy a glass of wine or meal on the verandah, accompanied by front seat river views. In the summer, the Wellington Hotel hosts performances by live bands.
