Our magical Murray River 🛶 was snapped in all its glory this week thanks to local lad @jamesy.mcinally 📸. It seems that his local #kayaking haunt along the #murray in #tailembend seems to be pretty popular with #paddlers everywhere - because this little-known paddlers paradise will soon be home to the newest #canoe #adventure as signs start to be installed for the @lower_murray_canoe_trail 🙌. If you’re into all things #watersports - including #canoeing #kayaking or #standuppaddling - then keep an eye on this trail as it emerges. We think you’ll be as excited as we are!! . . #outdoors @natureplaysa @southaustralia #seesouthaustralia #travel #river #waterlover #sunset #stillness #glassoff #millpond #trail #trails

When the mornings look like this, we don’t mind getting up at the crack of dawn for a walk 🌅. The famous and historic #murraybridge has been captured beautifully here by @emily_butterfly01 📸 and is giving us all the feels today as the city of Murray Bridge comes alive with three big events this weekend!! Not only will it be the home to the massive Australian International #pedalprix ... but a different type of wheels will be spinning around the place as part of the #adelaidehillsrally (kicking off at @thebendmotorsportpark just down the road); PLUS there will be fireworks, sideshows and jam-judging comps galore at the Murray Bridge Show - celebrating its 100th year this weekend!! 🎆 🚙 🤡 Turns our Murray Bridge might be the place to be this weekend! . . #murrayriver #murrayriverlife #bridge #historic #countryshow #rally #views #walkingtrails #familyevents

Hand’s up 🙋‍♀️🙋🏽‍♂️ if you’re looking forward to balmy evenings under the stars already! ⭐️ The good news is - summer is coming - but before we all shave down and throw on the togs, let’s take a moment to appreciate the magic of our award-winning #music #festival set amongst the #vines at @lakebreezewines in the @langhornecreekwine region. That’s right, the crew from @handpickedfestival have got us all jittery today after announcing their 10 November event line-up ... and doesn’t it look damn good. The crew from @boyandbear + @broodsmusic + @ballparkmusic will kick things off for the #festival. But that’s not the only good news out of the ‘Creek’s major event ... they’re also opening up #premium tickets for their premium patrons! 🥂🍇 A new offering - #thecellardoor is looking the goods.

The southern end of the #murrayriver looking at it’s brilliant best this week in #goolwa - captured by our pal @cbocky 📸. The wharf is home to some spectacular sights, as you gaze across to #hindmarshisland and take in the view of that #bridge over the #river. If you’re up for a drive this spring ... Goolwa might just be the perfect #daytrip 🚗 (by car or boat 🛥). If you don’t have your own vessel - no worries! There’s plenty of craft to board down here ... you can get your daily dose of exercise with the crew from @canoethecoorong 🛶, take in all the sights with @cruisethecoorong or @coorong_cruises ... or if history is more your style - jump on board the #pwoscar - our beautiful old #paddlesteamer based right on the wharf! And there’s plenty of great places to eat and drink down there (think gourmet #seafood ... #gindistillery ... and #cellardoors) 🐟🍷🥃🍴. Who’s up for a drive!? . . . #riverviews #murray #rivermurray #goolwawharf #waterview #travel #adventure #gin #stillwater #views #wanderlust @southaustralia #seesouthaustralia @australia @90milewbs @visit_alexandrina

You’ll find dog-friendly places to stay (including houseboats and premium Riverfront rentals), dog-friendly conservation parks and beaches, fenced dog parks, pet-friendly cafes and more. Whether it’s a week away, or a quick road-trip - pack that pooch in the car and come exploring with us... . . This snap was taken at one of our fave dog-friendly tracks in the #rockygullywetlands in #murraybridge ... and makes up part of the #lavenderfederationtrail - it’s he perfect day trip from #adelaide if you need to stretch the legs with your #furbabies . . .

Younghusband (and his young wife) 🤵 👰 ... hahaha! Seriously though - this incredible snap of a gorgeous young couple dancing on the cliff tops overlooking our magical #murrayriver and #lagoons (captured by our pal @jnnings 📸) has reminded us about just how incredibly good-looking our #murrayriver #lowerlakes and #coorong backdrops are for wedding photos, and events of any kind really!! This matrimonial photoshoot was taken just north-east of #mannum in the little town of #younghusband ... yes, it is a real town name (all puns intended). And of course, there are squillions of more clifftop views like this as you cruise along the #mightymurrayway in this region. And if you’re up for a cruise (and an adventure) it’s also not far from the magical views of the #mannumwaterfalls ; #ngautngaut #aboriginal Conservation Park ; and #bigbend By Night. A few #instaworthy moments in there we think! 📲#️⃣ . . #weddings #events #backdrop #photographer #vista #views

Those contrasting colours of the orange cliffs against South Australia’s stretch of the Murray River is reminding us of all the reasons we need to lock 🔐 in a #houseboat #holiday ASAP! 🌞💦 And while we’re talking #boats - did you know that the gorgeous little town of #mannum (in the #lowermurray ) is the #historic home of the #paddlesteamer in #australia !? And we like to celebrate this fact... so we’re prepping for our biggest #allsteamedup #festival #event in November. The event pays homage to paddlesteamers - new and old - and offers a range of #interactive fun for people of all ages. Check out all the details here 👉🏼 www.allsteamedupfestival.com ⛴ . . [special thanks to our pals at @spirit_australia_cruises for snapping this incredible aerial! 📸] #saevents #november #visitmannum #murrayriver #rivermurray #seesouthaustralia #murrayrivercliffs

Who else is excited about @little_local_co opening up ‘The Kitchen’ soon!? 🙋‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏿‍♂️🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏻‍♂️ We heard through the grapey that these guys were super-dooper busy during the #supercars weekend (excuse the pun) when they opened their new #princeshwy digs for a test-run. And we’re not surprised! With the LLC’s incredible #designstyle (note that jungle-feverish #featurewall and #pink tiles 😍), exceptional service (Amy’s compliments and Neil’s jokes), and to-die-for #coffee and food (just check their Insta profile and drool 🤤) ... we’re starting to fill the piggy bank and eagerly awaiting a launch date to plan another trip down the highway to #tailembend !! In the meantime... we’ll keep their funky little #boutiquecoffee shop in Tailem’s Main Street busy this week! [📸 This pic is courtesy of the LLC team themselves, who have quite an eye for Insta snaps - seriously, check the profile 🤤🤤📲]. . . . #coffee #tailem #tailembend #coorong #kitchen #travel #coffeestop #gourmet #roadtrip #murrayriver #rivermurray

It’s magic twilight moments like this along #southaustralias Murray River 🙌 which are getting us particularly excited for spring 🌅 ☀️ 🛶. [This magical snap is thanks to our neighbours at @griffensmarinahouseboats - who had it supplied by one their guests]. Speaking of houseboats... have you booked yours yet!? ⛴🥂 A great starting point is the HHA 👉🏼 (or the @houseboathirersassociation ). These guys are Murray River holiday experts!! . . #houseboat #houseboatholiday #midmurray #holiday #murrayriver #rivermurray #seesouthaustralia #canoe #kayak #adventure #nature #inthewild #getoutdoors @southaustralia @australia @lower_murray_canoe_trail @murray_coorong_trail @unforgettablehouseboats

“So I told him, it wasn’t me, I’m just a mere cat ... get it? Hahahaha!” 🤣 . . This perfectly timed shot 📸 from our mate @bomba_photography has captured a couple of Monarto Zoo’s cutest little characters hugging it out and having a chuckle over what we can only assume was another hilarious Meerkat joke. These characters are always up for a cheeky chat with visitors to @zoossa - and with a new meerkat enclosure opened earlier this year at Monarto, there’s even more opportunity to get up close to the furry little fellas. Did you know, you can even have these little guys eating or of your lap - literally!? The #meerkatmingle is just one of the incredible #animalexperiences at Monarto Zoo.

The magical Murray Mouth in all of its glory showing off its perfect colour scheme from above (and it looks even better up close!) 🙌🐟☀️🌊. This snap [thanks to the talented @cbocky ] is getting us excited for the start of spring next week. . . This cracking spot can be accessed via 4WD if you head along the vehicle entrance at Goolwa Beach. Perfect for fishing 🎣, picnics, photography, birdwatching, exploring sandhills or just taking in the natural scenery. But if off-roading isn’t your style - just head over the Hindmarsh Island Bridge and follow the Mighty Murray Way to the entrance at Sugars Beach. The view is pretty special from the other side as well. But honestly - no matter what vantage point you’re at - this is the best looking mouth we’ve ever seen 👄. . . #murraymouth #murrayriver #rivermurray #mouth #nature #4wd #4wding #4wdaustralia #coorongnationalpark #coorong #photographer #twitcher #outdoors #adventure #spring @natureplaysa @visit_alexandrina @murrayriverlife @southaustralia @australia #seesouthaustralia

Hang on just a minute 🤔... we thought @thebendmotorsportpark was hosting the @supercarschampionship this weekend, not a stunt show in the sky!! 🛫 Seems it’s all part of the entertainment - and just take a look at that perfectly clear sky across #tailembend ... what a sight! Get ready for the roar people 🏎🏎 . . #supercars #thebend #motorsport #thebendmotorsportpark #supersprint #stuntplane

One of our favourite places to visit after a rain event in the region - has to be the Mannum Waterfalls. Our pal @explore_with_formo has done an incredible job capturing this snap 📷 a few weeks back - reminding us just how magic some of our local landscapes are. The #mannum #waterfalls are just over an hour’s drive from #adelaide, and an awesome spot for #intrepid #explorers ... or for the #family . There’s a host of #walking #trails for beginners to pros around the falls - just make sure you wear some decent shoes if you want to explore!! And after you’ve walked the #falls - why not pop in to the #historic #port of Mannum for a bite and a play. Mannum is the historic home of he #paddlesteamer here in Australia, and the scenery you can capture from the #river’s edge is quite magical. Come and find us... 🏞🌅🚢🛶 . . . #walkingtrail #mannumfalls #murrayriver #rivermurray #explore #photography #landscapephotography #trails #outdoors #naturetrail @natureplaysa @southaustralia @australia @southaussiewithcosi #seesouthaustralia

We’re having gastronomic flashbacks to last weekend’s Cellar Treasures event in the @langhornecreekwine region 🍷🧀. The wine, the food, the people, the cellar doors ... all reminding us WHY Langhorne Creek is the best emerging boutique winery in Australia right now. And at less than an hour’s drive from the city, you might want to pack that weekender and come for a stay, a drink and a play real soon. 🍇🍷🍾. . . #wine #wineregion #boutiquewine #redwine #whitewine #sparklingwine #awardwinningwine #sawine #seesouthaustralia #southaustralia #australia #australianwine #langhornecreek #winetour #cellardoor #drinkwine #lovewine #cellartreasures @southaustralia @australia @wbmmagazine @bremertonwines @lakebreezewines @angasplains @bleasdalevineyards @the_winehouse_lc @templebruerwines @kimbolton_wines

Oh Murray Bridge ... you spectacularly gorgeous looking thing!! 💋 For anyone who’s ever spent a night here, you might’ve been lucky enough to wake up to this magical view. Anyone on their morning run/walk 🏃🏽‍♀️🚶🏼‍♂️usually heads for this part of town, which takes in some pretty incredible sunrise aspects... just like this one from our mate @10_triggers 📸. And if you’re like us, then you know the best place to head out for a #trail #run or #walk is somewhere new, somewhere special, and somewhere that makes you happy to have set your alarm for 6am! We’ve got it all here in #murraybridge. Both sides of the #bridge have great spots to get moving, including the #lavenderfederationtrail, #sturtreseve #riverfront #trail, and plenty more!! There’s trails that connect you from one reserve to another, via local wetlands, and others that guide you along boardwalk to playgrounds and interpretive signage. You can even walk on some of our levy banks, and directly across the pedestrian access on the edge of the bridge!! [Tip: If you need a quick break, go and hit the green button at the #bunyip and catch your breath (or lose it - ha!).] FYI - Murray Bridge is also home to @parkrunau every Saturday morning from 8am - so if you’re down this way (or travelling through), just head on down towards the Bunyip and you’ll spy the crew ready to reel you in for a sweat session. . . #comerunwithus #murraybridge #seesouthaustralia #trails #running #walking #trailrunning #views #sunrise #photographer #photography #fitness #family #weekend #parkrun #runningtrail @southaustralia @australia

What a capture 🙌🌅 of the award-winning Proud Mary cruising along our magical Murray on sunset, passing through our little-known River community of Bowhill. This snap 📸 is thanks to our very own onion 🌰 farmer (and ex-SA cricket gun) @smythy19 🏏 who regularly manages to take some cracking shots of himself, his mates and his border collie - with stunning backdrops just like this. This section of the #murrayriver has some of the widest expanses of water, and incredible orange #cliff faces making for epic #photography and #instaperfect moments all day long. You can create your own #instamoment like this by travelling along the #mightymurrayway #touringroute and discovering hidden gems just north of #mannum - like #bigbend #walkerflat #swanreach #purnong #caurnamont and #nildottie. (Rumour has it, that a few decades back, they even used to project 'blue' 🙊 🎞 movies on the cliffs, with the natural acoustics offering the perfect outdoor cinema!). . The other way to make this moment perfect is to jump on board the #luxurious #proudmary and head off for a half, two or five day #cruise! The food is #fivestar, and it's only matched by the stunning #views and #experiences you can have on board.
