See one of the State’s most significant Aboriginal sites
Widespread Murray River vistas throughout sweeping lagoons and backwaters surround Nildottie as you approach from Mannum, which have to be seen to be believed.
Nildottie is a small township and is one of the widespread grape growing districts in the region. You will pass through Nildottie on your way to Swan Reach from Mannum and is set high on the river cliffs and is home to the majestic Big Bend cliffs around the corner approximately 122 kilometres from Adelaide.
