Dance Information

The Hutt River, in the Clare Valley of South Australia, is a stream rising near Sevenhill and flowing in a generally northern direction past the town of Clare and through good farming and pastoral country into the southern side of the Broughton River.

Discovered in 1839 by explorer John Hill who named the river after Sir William Hutt, one of the South Australian Colonization Commissioners in London.
