Murray Avenue, Renmark
world chocolate day
SWEET tooths from around the region are encour-
aged to head to the Renmark Club on Friday for
an ultimate chocolate experience.
Friday, July 7, marks World Chocolate Day,
when Riverlanders can indulge in a variety of
chocolate-themed food and drink specials.
Throughout history, chocolate has been a sym-
bol of luxury, so why not relax on the balcony of
the Renmark Club and enjoy a chocolate martini,
or warm up with a boozy orange hot chocolate?
The club’s chefs have been busy experiment-
ing in the kitchen to bring you a selection of
chocolate treats, including: a chilli chocolate
cake, chocolate pudding with salted caramel
popcorn, chocolate drizzled waffles, cocao and
wattle seed-dusted local kangaroo with berries,
Patrons can also enjoy a warm cup of espres-
so paired with a carefully-crafted chocolate truf-
fle for one day only.
Renmark Club head chef Josh Hatch said he
and his team brainstormed different events the
club could host each month.
“We wanted to do something different and get
our staff excited as well,” he said.
“Chocolate is not an ingredient we would usu-
ally use in a main meal, so we are excited to put
up some unique dishes.
“ We will also be having entertainment by
Adelaide acoustic soloist Andy Mac from 7pm.”
Renmark Club will continue the themed days
by celebrating International Beer Day on August
4, and National Cheese Pizza Day on September
“I will be experimenting with a ‘Beeramisu’
next week in preparation for the beer day,” Mr
“Beer batter will be incorporated into a lot of
our main meal options.
“ We will also be putting our own spin on
cheesy pizza day and will create some new pizza
Mr Hatch said the Renmark Club would sup-
port other Riverland businesses by showcasing
local produce during the themed days.
He said this Friday’s chocolate specials would
be available all day.
“Popular dishes may make their way onto our
everyday menu,” he said.
“It is also Fiver Friday, so other cheap drink
alternatives will be available for any non-choca-
“ We will continue to work towards offering our
customers unique and enjoyable experiences.”
Calling all chocoholics

VERY little rainfall was recorded across
the Murray-Darling Basin last week as
high pressure systems persisted over
south east Australia.
MDBA total storage rose by 21 GL
last week, with the active storage at
5637 GL or 68 per cent.
At Euston Weir, the pool level was
47.6 m AHD, 20 cm below FSL.
Downstream of Euston at Hattah
Lakes, pumping of environmental water
into the lakes began yesterday.
On the Darling River, the total stor-
age volume in the Menindee Lakes
decreased by 2 GL last week and was
769 GL (44 per cent capacity).
Releases from Menindee Lakes to the
lower Darling River at Weir 32 contin-
ued at 400 ML/day.
At the junction of the Darling and
Murray rivers at Wentworth, flow
remained steady at 5550 ML/day.
At Locks 9, 8 and 7, the pool levels
were 5, 64 and 52 cm below FSL respec-
Pool levels are expected to be varied
over the coming weeks. Weir pool vari-
ability helps to restore a more natural
wetting and drying cycle to riverbanks
and adjacent wetlands within the influ-
ence of the weir pool.
Flow to South Australia was 6700
ML/day. This will reduce to 5600 ML/
day early this month.

Director of Children’s University
Australia, Kiri Hagenus, said the series
was designed to inspire students.
“For students who feel vulnerable or
disadvantaged due to their distance from
university, it’s greatly important that we
work to raise their educational aspira-
tions,” she said.
“Through outreach programs like this,
Children’s University Australia hopes to
demystify the idea of university to these
students and their families.
“We expect to reach more than 1000
