Wharf shelter opens in latest development on Murray Bridge’s riverfront
The shelter's design reflects the region's Ngarrindjeri and European heritage while providing a modern look for the area.
A new shelter at Murray Bridge’s wharf has been unveiled.
Valued at $1.5 million, the shelter is intended to be a meeting place and attraction for locals and tourists alike.
Murray Bridge council CEO Michael Sedgman said the shelter represented a “celebration” of Indigenous and European cultures.
“We undertook a co-design process with the Ngarringdjeri people,” Mr Sedgman said at a ceremony on Friday morning.
