Located on the traditional lands of the Ngaiawang, Ngawait, and Erawirung indigenous peoples, the Riverland was settled by Europeans in the 1880s. Renmark, the first and largest town in the area was settled in 1887, and is today home to around 4,500 residents, while over 40,000 people live in the larger Riverland area.
