Thrilling adventures and off-grid accommodation are just the beginning…
The Murray River, Lakes and Coorong has rightfully earned its place as one of SA’s most diverse holiday destinations, which is perfect for families. So, let’s go!
STAY AND PLAY
The Bridgeport Hotel’s prime location in the heart of Murray Bridge means you’re on the doorstep to some of the region’s most popular tourist attractions. It’s like nothing else in the area!
The 100-room hotel stands tall with sensational views over the Murray River and includes the option for interconnecting rooms, making it super family-friendly.
Despite the magnificent Miami-style infinity pool and outdoor bar, it’ll feel like home as soon as you step inside your hotel room and notice the gorgeous local murals splashed on the walls.
If you don’t have time to stay, make time for a meal in the Rivergum Restaurant on the ground floor. You’re in for a treat with all your favourite classic pub meals showcasing fresh local ingredients, as well as an Adelady-style cocktail list that’s to-die-for!
Private, magical and located just out of Murray Bridge, the Bridges Event Centre is not only South Australia’s biggest regional event centre, but also one of the most exclusive.
From small and intimate for up to 500 guests at gala events, and up to 5,000 guests when you incorporate the external lawned grounds, Bridges is ideal for holding conferences, trade shows, long table lunches, special dinners, big birthdays and of course, weddings.

The property offers three event rooms with all the facilities you need to put on a memorable event, as well as floor-to-ceiling windows and a bespoke menu showcasing the region’s best local produce. And if the idea of planning a party is not your jam, the fantastic on-site team is at your beck and call to take care of everything and help bring your party to life!
THE WILD IS CALLING
Southern White Rhinos, charismatic cheetahs, mischievous meerkats —Monarto Safari Park is the largest safari experience outside of Africa and home to many of Africa’s most impressive animals, all thriving on 1,500 hectares of wide open space.
Start your day at the new state-of-the-art Visitor Centre, exploring the park on foot or hopping on the free Zu-loop bus, which will bring you through large open-range habitats. Or discover the newest experience, Land of the Lemurs, bringing you within a tail’s length of one of Australia’s largest lemur troops!

You’ll be buzzing as you try to keep up with these playful primates from Madagascar, as they zig-zag from tree to tree and across your feet, purring with joy. And just by booking an animal experience like this, you’ll be helping to protect our endangered friends in the wild.
Monarto Safari Park is open every day of the year, including Christmas and public holidays! Are you ready to explore the wild?
Untouched and uniquely South Australian, this charming holiday destination is waiting for you to walk all over it — literally! The Murray Coorong Trail is a fantastic way to immerse yourself in nature and capture the amazing views of the region.
Walk or ride the Pelican Path, and learn all about the history of the town and Indigenous culture along the way. Or, if you prefer a hike with 360-degree views, the Lions Walking Trail is a must.
You’re going to want to stay longer than a day, so we’ve uncovered two very unique gems in the region: Coorong.Life and Coorong Island Retreat.
Switch off and let your creative juices flow. Coorong.Life offers two private, off-grid KipPods with the Coorong on your doorstep. A perfect blend of simple, rustic vibes with life’s little treasures, these romantic pods are designed to rejuvenate your soul. Just imagine waking up with these views!
Family friendly and pet friendly, this farmstay accommodation with Coorong views out every window will make you feel right at home. “Having the whole peninsula to yourself and sleeping up to ten people, it’s ideal for jet skiing and boating — it’s a fisherman and bird watcher’s paradise,” says owner Naveesh Sharma.
