The Harry Clark Fountain is an iconic fountain structure located on Renmark's riverfront.

Description

Designed by local artist, Peter Everingham, the Harry Clark Fountain was constructed by the Corporation of Renmark (now the Renmark Paringa Council) with the assistance of a donation from local businessman, Mr Harry Clark.

The number of upright stems represent each of the major rivers comprising the Murray Darling River system. The decreasing heights symbolise the passage of water from the source in the sky down through the mountains and finally onto the flat irrigated properties. The wine glass shapes represent the horticulture and fruit production of the area, with the surrounding paving representing an aerial view of the irrigation properties.

The fountain is one of the most recognised landmarks in the Rennmark Paringa district and with more recent installation of colored lighting, the Harry Clark Fountain is a spectacular sight after dark.
