About the property

Situated on the Murray River in the quiet town of Tailem Bend, this fully renovated 1920s stone home offers the perfect holiday destination for families or large groups.

With sleeping for 8 in beds and 2 more on comfortable sofa beds in the spacious lounge, the home accommodates the largest family groups.

Holiday on Murray now has an additional entertaining studio that boasts breathtaking river views, and is a perfect indoor area to socialise or relax with a coffee, wine or beer.

The new detached studio has a Nespresso coffee kitchen, cosy 2nd dining room, as well as a 3rd bathroom and 2nd lounge room with access to the relaxing balcony just in case you need to escape for some downtime.

In the main house; Cook up a storm in the well appointed kitchen with dishwasher and dine in the large dining room at the table for ten or enjoy alfresco dining in the Balinese Pavilion or the all weather BBQ area in the fabulous gardens. A gas BBQ and a Weber BBQ are provided.

Take the steps down to the lawned riverfront where an air-conditioned restored 1950s retro caravan allows you to spend the whole day by the water without having to go back to the house to put the littlies down for their afternoon nap.

There's an old fashion ice-box fridge in the van to keep your food and drinks cold as well as a microwave oven, kettle, cutlery and crockery.

There's mains water for showering and washing up as well as another gas BBQ on the river bank.

Great water skiing and wake-boarding on this quiet, wide stretch of the Murray River.

Launch your boat or Jet Ski from the boat ramp at Fred's landing only 3 minutes away; then moor your craft at the private, pontoon by the caravan at the property.

After a day of water activities you might like to indulge in a massage in the massage chair in the lounge or soak in the two person spa; or both.

The well tropical and Mediterranean lit gardens are fully enclosed and the gates are lockable so that you can be sure that the littlies cannot abscond and get into mischief.

There's a giant chess board and chess pieces in a separate gazebo and plenty of other games and DVDs to enjoy indoors and out.


Holiday on Murray sits on the river bend at Tailem Bend (15 mins past Murray Bridge) and offers magnificent vistas along this beautiful, wide stretch of the River Murray.

Being inside the township boundaries it has the advantage of being within walking distance to all facilities and shopping.

Supermarket, pubs, bakeries, cafes, service stations, hospital and more are all within walking distance.

Jump in the car and you're minutes away from the The Big Olive, SA Motorsport Park, River Bend Heritage Trail, Old Tailem Town (Ghost Tours available), Pangarinda Arboretum, and Monarto Zoo.

Half day trips let you explore the wine regions of the Coonawarra and Southern Vales, while the Currency Creek wineries are a short scenic drive away.

The Coorong district offers all types of cultural experiences as well as historic sites including old Cobb & Co stage coach sites.

.And if you still have the energy, why not visit the local attractions.
