Currency Creek

The Currency Creek Cemetery is the final resting place for many of the pioneering riverboat captains who travelled the Murray River in their paddle steamers.

As you explore the Currency Creek area, look out for the many 'Canoe Trees' - large eucalypts with sections carved from their trunks which the local Aboriginal people used to make canoes. The Lions Park is a perfect spot for a picnic, with the Currency Creek running past, tall gums and wonderful beautiful country terrain you will feel at one with nature. A short drive from the park on the Adelaide Road you can visit the Historic Currency Creek cemetery which houses many of the late river boat captains of a time past.
