Our Mid Murray townships and iconic places not to be missed!

The Mid Murray Council region stretches from the Mallee to the Murray River.  The river highway connects many townships stretching to widespread farming, vegetable and grape growing districts.

We encourage our community to become a visitor in their own backyard and experience the natural wonders of our great region or the many diverse tourism attractions.

If you are passing through or require further information visit the Mannum Visitor Information Centre or phone 8569 1303 or email which has an extensive selection of brochures and information on our region’s townships, attractions and events.

Bric A Brac and vintage shops abound throughout the region where you will find that treasure you just cant do without and the birdlife and natural wonders will astound you!

Our region’s central location is ideal to base yourself to enjoy the natural beauty and attractions on offer with a diverse selection of accommodation at riverside caravan parks, free riverside camping areas, B&B’s, motels, houseboats, hotels and river shacks.

Travel down the unsealed Murraylands Road which will take you through the Mid Murray region from Mannum to Morgan where the birdlife and native flora and fauna will amaze you and roads will take you to our outer townships all with a story of their own.

Due to our centrally located region, only between one and two hours from Adelaide, take the time to find your favourite spot and explore our neighbours close by such as the Barossa, Adelaide Hills, Fleurieu, Riverland and Clare Valleys regions.

From Caloote to Cadell, from Mannum to Morgan and Tungkillo to Truro, our friendly communities will assist you on your journey of discovery and hope you enjoy the distinct and picturesque landscape the Mid Murray Council region has to offer!
