The Riverland’s Own Luxury Lodge

The Frames is the vision of Cathy and Rick Edmonds (pictured above), who set about to create a luxury lodge style of accommodation that highlighted and embraced the beauty of the Murray River, a place they both love.

They are the descendants of three generations of families in the Riverland, their ancestors being the early free settler pioneers who developed the Riverland region in South Australia.

This prosperous and fertile country, known as the fruit bowl of South Australia, is fed by the 2500 kilometre long Murray River which sustains not only the diversity in flora and fauna and the largest River Red Gum Forest in the world, but also many communities in three states of Australia - New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia.

Luxurious Tranquility with Warm Local Hospitality

Establishing world class luxury lodge accommodation in the Riverland opens this spectacular region to discerning travellers from all over Australia and the world who want a truly local experience of food and agriculture, or equally a secluded romantic holiday surrounded by the tranquil beauty of the Murray River. 

Cathy and Rick are committed to giving their guests an experience that opens the doors to the stunning Murray River and all its secrets, along with luxurious comfort, total privacy and personalised hospitality. You will leave here better than when you arrived.
