Things to do in Murray Bridge: April 28–May 4, 2023
All you need to know about Murray Bridge's Round House tours, the Kids Mosaics workshop and more, thanks to Newbridge.
Round, round, get around to Murray Bridge’s Round House during May – aka SA’s History Month – as every Wednesday during May, there’ll be a special tour of the Round House.
Apart from the magnificent views of the River Murray from the Round House, you can go inside the Round House to check out historical displays, archival photos and maps before taking a tour.
On said tour, you’ll learn about the history of the Round House, as well as the pivotal role Henry Parker played in supervising the construction of the Old Murray Bridge and commissioning the Round House, with its million-dollar views.
