Murray RiverDestination: Murray Bridge

Murray Bridge

Murray Bridge was never on our list of ‘must see’ travel destinations. Our relatives had pre-planned a family House Boat Cruise on the Murray River, so a stop at Murray Bridge was added to the itinerary.

Destination: Adelaide

Adelaide

The city of Adelaide is tucked away in a less populated part of the country, on the scenic coastline of South Australia. Cities are not usually at the top of our list of places to visit.  After a few days in Adelaide, we were impressed with what it offered.

Broken Hill

Surprisingly, you could easily spend a week in Broken Hill and not see the endless array of attractions. The experiences on offer range from art, history, food, and mining with a little bit of eccentric thrown in the mix. The town exists because of mining and would probably be one of the most significant mining sites in the world because […]

White Cliffs

It didn’t come too highly rated, the most common response was “I wouldn’t bother going there, there is nothing there” They were nearly correct, there isn’t a great deal to see, but I’m definitely glad we stopped in, and I would totally recommend […]
