Wonders of Early River, Road and Rail

The mighty Murray River, home to the Ngarrindjeri peoples for centuries, is the lifeblood of our town. In 1874 Murray Bridge was established as a vital link in South Australia’s fledging trade routes, spawning decades of prosperity for our thriving communities.

The Roundhouse come together with Murray Bridge and District Historical Society to tell the story of how river, road and rail have shaped this transport hub. Visitors will be able to view a display or archival photos and maps of our district’s history of river, road and rail freight.
