Hours: Monday, Wednesday and Friday - 10am to 3pm

An outdoor museum featuring a vast range of farm equipment and agricultural implements in a riverside setting.


The Renmark Paringa Community Museum is set in a landscaped native garden, on the banks of the Murray River and features a range of vintage farm machinery, implements, sheds, tools and static displays. Their collection of historical steam engines, many in working order, is impressive.

A recent addition to the museum is the Black Stump which is one of the largest of 11 known black stumps in Australia!

The impressive black stump is a 600 year old river red gum root system that weighs approximately 8 tonne and is 8 metres in diameter.

A great venue for families to wander and experience bygone times. There is a sheltered picnic area and barbecues available onsite. Volunteers are able to offer guided tours on request when visiting the site and group tours can be arranged outside normal operating hours if a guide is available.

Cost: Free entry though a donation is appreciated
