Treat yourself to some Riverland gourmet foods
As a family-owned and family-run grower, producer and providore, Illalangi offers a wide selection of local Riverland gourmet foods such as their award-winning caramelised wattleseed balsamic vinegar as well as a range of dukkah, olives, olive oils, jams, relishes and sauces. In addition, grazing boxes and hampers are also available for family-sharing and gift-giving.
Illalangi was established by John and Keryn Gorman about ten years ago to showcase the premium produce the region has to offer. They have a nice little storefront at Waikerie which you can visit to obtain any of these artisan products. Due to COVID-19 restrictions though, do check their website for the most current opening hours before visiting. Alternatively, you could also shop online at any time.
Illalangi is a definite stopover for me whenever I'm in the Riverland. It is conveniently located right on the Sturt Highway, but be sure to look out for it as you're nearing Waikerie. I missed the store on my very first visit and had to make a u-turn on the highway! My favourites are their dried vine fruits including the currants, sultanas and sun muscats, and their sauces especially the tomato, capsicum and chilli sauce.
