We're so close to Adelaide
and yet so far from everything!

There are many ways to get to the Murraylands.....The most important is you come HERE!

You get your first glimpse of the southern most part of the Murraylands Region from the freeway (just a cheeky little glimpse of what's in store.....tempting one to find more OR

If coming from Adelaide, take a meander through the Hills via Birdwood (stop for lunch and view the Shearer car built by William Randell) on through Gumeracha, onwards to Palmer (view the rocky outcrops of huge boulders, then down in to Mannum. Stay awhile, and then travel onwards and upwards towards Walkers Flat (see the towering cliffs, almost as if you can reach out and touch them from the car windows). Chat a while on the ferry crossing at Walker Flat, the operators, are all locals and are a fount of knowledge and local lore, then upwards towards Swan Reach, Blanchetown, Morgan and Cadell OR

Maybe you have stayed for a night or two with our Barossa partners, The Getaway Team, and decide to start from the Northen End, travelling alongside the cliffs, stopping to view them at Nildotte, pass over the ferry at Purnong, then onto Mannum OR

If you are coming from Victoria, stop and enjoy the hub of Tailem Bend, and onwards to Murray Bridge OR

Coming from NSW...passing through the mallee region, the towns of Pinnaroo, Lameroo and Karoonda.

Have you got it yet? The Murraylands has many wonderous, different and grand enterances, which ever way you choose to travel to see us, Remember you will be back!! See a map or our region.
