Berri Bridge Mural
Tucked away underneath the Berri Bridge this mural depicts the Aboriginal heritage of the area. The mural is on a large slab of jarrah bolted to the underpass of the bridge with a circle of totem poles. The story of the mural is based on the Ngurunderi Dreaming story of the origins of the Murray River.
The Riverland is home to a remarkable network of wetlands and waterways where you can hire a kayak, canoe or sit-on-top to do your own exploring. Canoe Adventures also host guided relaxed tours on canoes and overnight canoe camping. Peruse through the wetlands at your own pace on a canoe and enjoy the shade!
