The town of Dareton is at the centre of the Coomealla Irrigation Area, an ambitious horticultural development begun in 1922.
The bush landscape was transformed into an orderly pattern of vineyards and orchards, by soldier settlers, following the two world wars.
The Dareton Agricultural Research and Advisory station has operated for 60 years providing scientific data for vine and citrus industries.
The Coomealla Memorial Club is a superb entertainment and dining centre, and also operates a championship golf course on the banks of the Murray River. The area is an angler’s paradise and habitat for fauna.
