Your next adventure awaits in the Murray River, Lakes and Coorong!
Whether it’s a frivolous girls’ weekend away, a fun-filled family holiday or a luxurious romantic escape with your one and only, this beautiful region has something for everyone. Can’t decide where to go first? Let’s get you started…
Gather your gal pals
If you haven’t been to Kimbolton Wines in Langhorne Creek, what are you waiting for? This magnificent, architecturally designed cellar door built from repurposed shipping containers is the perfect spot to sip wines with the crew. Partake in a delicious wine and cheese pairing, whilst taking in the stunning surrounds from the viewing deck. Book the signature Wine & Cheese Flight — there’s even one for the kids — or check out their fabulous events held throughout the year.
Stay and play
The award-winning Bridgeport Hotel is the perfect base to explore Murray Bridge and beyond, or to simply enjoy a staycation with everything you need contained within the hotel itself! The hotel boasts an infinity pool overlooking the Murray River, making it a great spot for a cold drink at the pool bar. Or, if you’re seeking an indulgent afternoon, dine out on the terrace with their extensive local food and cocktail menu — you can’t go past the signature high tea experience in The Lounge.
Romancing the river
Cruising the Murray is a dream come true for the romantics at heart. The PS Murray Princess is a beautiful inland paddle steamer that cruises between Mannum, Murray Bridge and Salter’s Station. They have an array of three, four or seven night escapes and special event cruises to delight every traveller. With an impressive view of the paddlewheel in action from the lounge and an abundance of wildlife to spot on the waterways, you won’t want to set foot back on land!
The thrill of the chase
If you want to get your teenagers off their devices, a day out at The Bend Motorsport Park will do the trick! Racing around The Bend Karting Circuit is off the charts fun! The Grand Prix circuit is the longest in South Australia and will get pulses racing with 16 challenging turns to take on. Grown-ups can experience the thrill of high speed hot laps in a range of high performance track and race cars.
Wine or gin?
Why not both! Bremerton Wines is well known for their award- winning wines, but their range of gin has got us really excited. Spend a relaxing afternoon sipping away in the newly renovated cellar door, soak in the local art on the walls, or enjoy a gin flight and a gourmet pizza picnic on the perfectly manicured lawn. What a way to spend a day!
Get on river time
River Shack Rentals has got the whole family sorted with a range of accommodation options that sit right on the riverbank, from old-school shacks reminiscent of childhood holidays to modern luxurious homes fit for Adelady queens! A holiday on the river is a time to reconnect and enjoy the great outdoors. At the end of a fun-filled day, there’s nothing better than a twilight riverside barbecue — bliss!
We’re simply in love with Monarto Safari Park. Whenever we visit, there’s something new to discover. If you haven’t tried the animal experiences yet, you’re in for a treat with Meerkat Mingle, Meet the Chimps or Keeper for a Day. No matter what you choose, these experiences will make your Monarto Safari Park experience even more memorable. And keep an eye out for their recently opened $16.7 million dollar Visitor Centre, and new accommodation coming in late 2022.
Set your hearts racing
Nothing says a girls’ day out like a trip to the races. Frock up in your finest for a day of racing excitement and fashions on the field at Bridges Event Centre, which is part of the Murray Bridge Racing Club. Hot tip for our ladies planning a wedding soon: this place is superb for special occasions! Check out their function packages for more information.
