Damp Wall Treatment: Akuna Station

damp wall treatment akuna station

The Akuna Station is situated in Lowbank on the Lower Murray area between Kingston and Waikerie in South Australia. This area is known as the Riverland wine region where the old estate has since been converted into vineyards and accommodation. Established during the 19th Century, Akuna Station was originally used as a fording station for stock crossing the river, then later as a coach stop and postal depot. Nowadays, the station is an award winning property and home to a truly picturesque riverfront. The word ‘Akuna’ is even thought to be Aboriginal for ‘running water’. The property boasts high cliff tops, scrubland, wetlands, dry farming land and a premium vineyard. A 1875 paddleboat known as Akuna Amphibious houses accomodation. Since being fully restored with luxury appointments up to six guests can stay in the paddleboat. Other accomodation on the property includes a two bedroom original homestead built in 1928 that has been renovated. Akuna Station required damp wall treatment after rising salt damp was discovered to be affecting the structure of the building.
