Murraylands Area Highlights & Essential Things To Do
Discover Your Local Murraylands Area
Located only an hour away from the hustle and bustle of Adelaide is the Murraylands region, where the lower part of the Murray River takes its final bend towards the Southern Ocean. Including the Mallee region, the Coorong and a number of river towns, farming towns and lakes, the Murraylands has a rich community spirit which makes up a huge part of regional South Australia.
Murray Bridge is the heart of the Murraylands Region, a town popular with tourists travelling along the River. Water attractions such as water sports, boating and fishing are popular activities among locals and tourists. The most loved river cruise among locals, Proud Mary, explores the mysterious waters and is the best way to view the spectacular Murraylands landscape, abundant birdlife and local wildlife.
The perfect place to take the kids in the Murraylands is the Monarto Open Range Zoo, which features five major habitats, the Asian Steppes, arid North Africa, African plains, and Asian grasslands. It also includes a Safari around the 1000 hectare zoo. A region as big as the Murraylands needs its own ‘big thing’, and of course, in true Australian style, the Big Olive is a major South Australian attraction in the region which boasts the world’s best olive oil and olive oil products.
Big Bend by Night hosted by Eco Tours celebrates the Murray River in style. Spotlight tours guide you through the Murray by night, lighting up the River and its wildlife, and allowing you to get up close to the animals. Dining tours use local produce for meals at sunset, with spectacular views of stunning Big Bend cliffs as they change colour.
With so many things to do in the Murraylands and so many places to visit, don’t forget to add this region to your holiday list, you won’t regret it!
