The Rural City of Murray Bridge recognises the efforts of local community groups who enhance our way of life, help knit our community together and generally make our Council area a better place for all to live, visit and work in.

Council would like to thank our local community groups by providing this space for people to be able to learn about local community groups and get in touch.

If you would like your community group included here please complete a Rural City of Murray Bridge Community Group Inclusion Application form and submit at the Local Government Centre on Seventh Street or mail to PO Box 421 MURRAY BRIDGE SA 5253.

Community Action Groups

A space where Council works in collaboration with the Community to achieve goals together.

The Community Action Group is where energetic ideas and concepts from the community are generated, captured and processed.

The group consists of a diverse range of community members with a wide range of interests and passions. 

They assist the Council's Community Development staff by acting as a conduit between community leaders, groups and Council.

Share your ideas, partner with other projects, DREAM BIG and continue to create the best Murray Bridge region that our community can be proud to call home. 

This imaginative group meets every 8 weeks in the upstairs meeting room at the Murray Bridge Town Hall and is always open to fresh ideas. New members are extremely welcome.

Ngopun Together

Reconciliation Action Group

People working together to build a strong and vibrant community, inclusive and respectful group of people from all cultures. 

Ngopun is a Ngarrindjeri word meaning to walk. Ngopun together - Walking side by side. 

Ngopun Together is a group of community members from a diverse background whose common purpose is to contribute to the development of a friendly cooperative community where all people are accepted and valued for who they are; their beliefs, customs, history and cultural practices. We are inclusive of all people. 

The group have contributed to this in a variety of ways by recognising the honoured place of Aboriginal people as the First Australians, working to address disadvantages and promoting activities which build good relationships. 

Ngopun Together aim to:

  • Consult with key Aboriginal individuals and organisations
  • Cooperate with agencies with similar aims
  • Receive support from the Rural City of Murray Bridge Council
  • Meet Monthly

We would value your interest and involvement and your ideas as we see to build a community aiming for greater harmony and equality. Come, join us and help to make this happen on the 3rd Wednesday of each month. 1pm at Ninkowa, 1 Wharf Road, Murray Bridge SA 5253.

Meetings are held every three months.
