Things to do in Murray Bridge: November 25-December 1, 2022
All you need to know about the Australian Superbike Championship race at the Bend, Murray Bridge Marathon Festival, David Strassman's tour and more.
The nation’s top-flight motorcycle racing series will have its grand finale at Tailem Bend this weekend as the Australian Superbike Championship rolls into the Bend Motorsport Park.
Moto GP racer Jack Miller and Moto 3’s Joel Kelso will be among the star riders competing at the venue’s international circuit over Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
If you’d rather get the legs working than sit in a grandstand, there were still spots left for Sunday’s Murray Bridge Marathon Festival, which will run on a modified course owing to bridge works and imminent flooding.
Or, if you’re more of a music fiend, head to Murray Bridge’s gallery for a quiz night on Friday or the Station for a jam on Sunday.
