Murraylands Region

In many ways, Murray Bridge  is your archetypal Australian big  country  town. There’s a grain silo on the skyline, vegetable gardens, greenhouses and industry surrounding the city centre, with a host of small and connected rural communities scattered  throughout the region that both support and depend on its success.

It’s the model beloved  by treechangers: big enough to provide  the cultural, social, commercial and medical support you couldn’t live without; yet, small enough to have a genuine neighbourly attitude and still care  about  its people, history and  the environment.

What  sets it apart,  however,  is that unlike some rural cities nowadays, the Rural City of Murray Bridge  is not only surviving but thriving thanks to a number of significant competitive  advantages.
