Blythman, Doreen Zerna, Bert Haslam, Colleen Jones, Jenny Mills and Deidre Fogden. The shop is
holding a sale this Saturday to clear space for incoming goods.
Donations have been flooding in to the
Loxton Rotary Opportunity Shop over the
past several weeks.
With this in mind, volunteers are looking to clear
space for incoming stock ready for the warmer
months and are holding a sale.
Loxton Rotary Club president Jenny Mills said the
sale was a chance for people to support the op shop
and wider community, while at the same time 'bag-
ging a bargain'.
"We'll have a mixture of summer and winter cloth-
ing, along with books and bric-a-brac," she said.
"There will be specials and low-cost items up for
sale and it's also a chance to promote our volunteers
and the good work that they do.
"This is just another way we can show the com-
munity the wonderful workers we have here."
In addition to clothing and household items, the
shop also sells furniture, with a new purpose-built
"We're always looking for quality furniture dona-
tions that we can onsell," Mrs Mills said.
"We can arrange for collection within the Loxton
and Loxton North areas."
Mrs Mills thanked locals for their support of the op
shop over the years.
"We continue to be very thankful to the commu-
nity for their donations and acknowledge their sup-
port as well," she said.
"Without their donations of clothing, other items
and furniture, we wouldn't be able to do what we

Riverland road trip
Tourists will be able to
experience a River Murray
road trip as part of a new
touring route developed to
attract interstate and overseas
visitors to South Australia.
The South Australian Tourism
Commission has developed five
self-drive routes highlighting wine
regions, scenic coastal and Murray
River drives, outback discovery
routes, and the state's freshest sea-
food and produce.
State Tourism Minister Leon
Bignell said self-drive tourists were
a major proportion of all visitors to
the State, and the new routes would
make exploring South Australia by
car much easier.
"There were 3.9 million domestic
overnight leisure trips made in South
Australia last year and 84 percent
used a private, rented, hire vehicle
or a campervan or motor home as a
means of transport," he said.
"That's almost 3.3 million leisure
purpose driving trips made in our
"Self-drive holidays are one of the
fastest growing tourism sectors and
promoting these routes puts us in
a great position to attract interstate
and overseas visitors to SA.
The five routes are:
• Epicurean Way -- McLaren Vale
to Clare Valley via the Adelaide
Hills and Barossa.
• Explorers Way -- Adelaide to
Darwin via the Flinders Ranges.
• Seafood Frontier -- Adelaide to
Eyre Peninsula via Yorke Peninsula.
• Mighty Murray Way -- the Murray
River from Renmark to the mouth.
• Southern Ocean Drive -- Mount
Gambier to Adelaide via Kangaroo
The routes will be promoted in
downloadable maps and suggested
itineraries on the (southaustralia.
com) website. The website will also
feature an interactive map that will
provide more detailed information
about experiences along the routes.
