Parilla sits on the Mallee Highway in the Murraylands region of South Australia. With a population of approximately 80, Parilla is a great spot to take a break from travelling and perhaps to stay the night. Take a look at the mural as well as the other points of interest in town. It has both traditional and newer crops, including potatoes, carrots, onions, olives and grapes. Parilla was named after an Aboriginal word meaning ﾑcold place'. It was surveyed in 1904 and proclaimed a town in 1907. Like nearby Pinnaroo, Parilla too was brought to life in 1906 with the opening of the railway. Explore more of the Murraylands - one of South Australia's favourite aquatic playgrounds, with the mighty Murray River meandering through. This is where you'll find your perfect houseboat holiday. There's nothing that quite compares to a holiday on a houseboat, cruising up and down the river at your leisure in your own floating hotel. And the towns of the Murraylands have a relaxed, casual feel - the ideal place to spend a lazy afternoon in the sun after a day of watersports or fishing. There are plenty of opportunities to go bushwalking, or enjoy an old-fashioned singalong by the fire at a camping site. And you'll find a range of accommodation options, great places to relax, shop and enjoy a drink at a local pub.
