The Murraylands is one of the most interesting and enticing areas of South Australia. As the name suggests, it’s located around the mouth of the mighty Murray River (Australia’s longest river!), in the south-east of South Australia. Stretching from the Victorian border in the east, to the gorgeous Coorong in the west, sandwiched between the Limestone Coast and the Riverland district, the Murraylands is both easily accessible and packed with stuff to see and do.
The Murraylands are the traditional home of the Ngarrindjeri Nation, and was settled by Europeans in the 1840s. Today, it’s home to over 60,000 people, with almost a third of them in the town of Murray Bridge. It’s slightly cooler here than in Adelaide, which makes it a great spot to escape the city heat, though it’s also slightly wetter as well.
