Suburb Overview

Riverton is a small town of distinctive character and interest to travellers in the Mid North of South Australia, in the Gilbert Valley. It is situated on the Gilbert River, from which the town derives its name. At the 2006 census, Riverton had a population of 723.

Riverton was first settled in 1856, as a settlement along the bullock track from the mining town of Burra to the capital city Adelaide. It grew from a plan designed by a James Masters who had established the nearby town of Saddleworth.

The streets of Riverton received their names chiefly from James Masters and his friends. They commemorate persons notable in the history of the district or the State.

Both the Gilbert Valley and Gilbert River were named after South Australian pioneer, Thomas Gilbert.

The first storekeeper in the town, John Jubb Horner, arrived in South Australia in 1853 and soon made his way with his family to Riverton. His store, built in the early 1850s, was situated at the south end of the town. His store was the commercial emporium of Riverton, where the settlers would gather for social intercourse as well as business. This store was also the original Post Office, Telegraph Office, and Registry for Births Marriages and Deaths. The only other shop in the town in the early 1850s was owned by a shoemaker, a Mr. Payne.

The Riverton Hotel, originally known as the Riverton Arms, opened for business in 1855, although the building was not completed until 1857. This hotel, and the abovemention two shops, were the only business places in 1857.

Local Government was proclaimed in July 1866, the first Court House and Police Station were opened that same year, the new Post Office and the Community Hall were both built in 1874.

In 1897, it was reported that miners were engaged in opening up a mineral show in the hills about 5 miles east of Riverton, resulting in what appeared to be a permanent lode of copper and silver lead. Samples were sent for assaying and the results were promising, silver and lead definitely being present. However no developments took place, which indicates that the lode could not have been as extensive as appeared at first. Even by 1965, fossickers still gleaned a little from this mineral deposit.

The transport problems for the Kapunda miners had been eased in 1860 when the railway reached there. The question was whether the line should continue from Kapunda northwards along the valley of the River Light to Burra, or whether another line should stretch northwards from Gawler through the Gilbert Valley. The authorities wisely decided on the second course because that would open up thousands of acres of good agricultural land and new towns would grow along the route.

It was a fortunate decision for Riverton. The railway was opened to Tarlee in 1868, Riverton on 20 December 1869 and Manoora in 1870.

Railway workshops were immediately set up in Riverton. This swelled the population and sharply increased trade generally in the town. However, the workshops closed in 1878.
