 Murray Bridge Discovery Trail LGC

A new walking trail that encourages visitors and residents to explore Murray Bridge whilst taking in the history and stories of the town is to be launched on 2 August, 2017.

Set within the heart of Murray Bridge, the trail loops around the central business district, historic transport precinct and the Historic Round House, bridges, river front and wharf precinct.  

Mayor Lewis said “The Murray Bridge Discovery Trail was developed by Council with valuable support from the Murray Bridge and District Historical Society and history-loving locals.  It has taken 12 months for the team to research, collate the relevant information and design and erect signage.”

He added “The trail promotes local history, heritage and culture whilst encouraging visitors and locals to take a stroll and enjoy our beautiful region”

Murray Bridge historian Ken Wells commended council on the initiative. “The trail provides a wonderful opportunity for locals and visitors to gain an insight into our past and projects like the Discovery Trail are to be commended.”

It identifies a range of retail and dining options along the route as well as art galleries enticing visitors to stay a little longer. 

Walking enthusiasts have the opportunity to extend their walk and enjoy the wetlands and birdlife at Rocky Gully Wetlands or take in the riverfront at Sturt Reserve.

With the installation of interpretive signage along the trail visitors will learn more about the early history and heritage. Brochures have been produced and provide additional information including a detailed map of the trail.

Brochures are available from the Murray Bridge Visitor Information Centre and participating outlets along the trail and can be downloaded from the Council’s website.
