Murray Bridge, South Australia
Murray Bridge, in the heart of the Murraylands
To the heart of the Murraylands, where families and visitors enjoy a vibrant river lifestyle surrounded by a prosperous growing region of primary and secondary industry. The City of Murray Bridge is situated 80km east of Adelaide, South Australia and incorporates the areas of Callington, Jervois, Mypolonga, Wellington and Woods Point.
With a great climate, the region hosts more than 1.1 million visitors every year for business and holidays. Attractions include water sports, boating, fishing, swimming, motor sports, recreation, walking trails, restaurants and the International pedal prix.
The Murray River is indeed a popular tourist attraction within South Australia - with Murray Bridge being the "crown" of the Murray Region, containing many attractions for people of all ages. The Murray River is a picturesque site of houseboats, paddle steamers and happy, relaxed people. Sit back and relax while observing the beauty of this natural wonder.
Although many of the Murray Bridge attractions are water based, such as skiing and swimming, there are many exciting on-land attractions that are well worth a visit. Just out of Murray Bridge there is a new open-range zoo and breeding ground for arid and grassland animals (Monarto Zoological Park). Many species of animals can roam this 1000 hectare site. Tourists have the opportunity to take a Safari Bus around the park with a personal guide.
Today the city is the centre of a major agricultural district which is driven by dairying, chicken raising, pig breeding, tomato and snow pea growing.
