Things to do in Murray Bridge: September 29-October 5, 2023
Your guide to Murray Bridge Speedway’s opening night, the Murraylands Fair, Wellington Strawberry Fete and school holiday activities galore.
This post includes contributions from Emily Green.
Another huge week lies ahead in the Murraylands, with the Labour Day long weekend leading into the school holidays.
If you’re into cars, head along to Murray Bridge Speedway’s opening night, then back up with Cars and Coffee on Sunday morning and the Palmer hot rod show during the day.
If you’d rather browse through a market, head to Wellington for the strawberry fete or Murray Bridge for the Murraylands Fair.
If you’re looking for something fun for the kids, you can make a lei, escape from a pirate ship or fly a kite.
