Murray Bridge has so much to offer
Murray Bridge is known as the “Crown” of the Murray Region and is located approximately 75km from Adelaide. It is a very popular tourist destination for day trips, river cruises and water sports. The city is a picturesque site of Paddle Steamers and Houseboats dotted along the River with many cafes, bakeries, restaurants and hotels to stop at for a leisurely lunch or dinner. Murray Bridge is without a doubt the draw card to the beautiful Murray River.
The Ngarrindjeri Aboriginal people originally inhabited Murray Bridge and the Europeans then built a road bridge over the River, which was completed in 1879. It was followed in 1886 by the Adelaide-Melbourne railway line, which guaranteed the City’s importance as a vital link across the River. Today the city is the centre of a major agricultural district and is an extremely popular destination within South Australia for people of all ages, whether visiting or looking to settle down more permanently.
Needless to say, there will always be something to see and do in Murray Bridge. For those who enjoy outdoor activities the Murray River is an adventure playground for swimmers, water-skiiers, boating enthusiasts and fisherman alike. But if you prefer something less adventurous why not take a cruise along the river, explore the wetlands and walking trails, or enjoy a picnic on the waterfront at Sturt Reserve.
Murray Bridge is a thriving community which you will love to call home. It has a world class library, a quality regional art gallery and many historical sites of significance, amongst other things.
