Taking in the wonders of the River Murray

You've got to see it to believe it. The magnificent Big Bend Cliffs, near Nildottie and Swan Reach, on the River Murray are just majestic. Along the entire length of the river, Big Bend is known to be not only the longest single bend but also the location of the tallest sandstone cliffs which are believed to be up to 20 million years old. They are rich in fossils, flora and fauna, and serve as a popular nesting ground for cockatoos.

There are two ways to visit these incredible cliffs, that is, either by road or by boat. By road, take the route from Mannum, travel across Walker Flat on the free ferry and stopover at the lookout just outside Nildottie. By boat, cruise upstream past the Ngaut Ngaut Conservation Park and you'll start to get a glimpse of the breathtaking view.
