Renmark Irrigation Trust: The Rebuilding of Renmark After the 1956 Flood

Renmark Irrigation Trust was the Council responsible for rebuilding the irrigation settlement in Renmark after the 1956 Flood. It was a momentous task. The costs involved in reconstructing roads, relocating flood levees, rebuilding and reconnecting irrigation channels and blocks were overwhelming. 

Come and hear from a panel of Renmark residents about their memories of RIT’s role in the reconstruction, and how families rebuilt their lives.  A slide show, which has been compiled from Trust documents, photographs and newspaper articles, will support the event. 

A light afternoon tea will be provided.
