Currency Creek was once planned to be the location for the capital of South Australia.

The Currency Creek Cemetery is the final resting place for many of the pioneering riverboat captains who travelled the Murray River in their paddle steamers. As you explore the Currency Creek area, look out for the many 'Canoe Trees' - large eucalypts with sections carved from their trunks which the local Aboriginal people used to make canoes.
