Big Bend Lookout - Nildottie


Big Bend in South Australia is the longest single bend in the Murray River. The area is known for its spectacular riverside cliffs, which are the tallest along the Murray River. The limestone cliffs are rich with millions of ocean fossils and are home to colonies of bats. Caves in the area have been continuously occupied for at least 8,000 years and are sacred to the local aboriginal community. There is a collection of holiday shacks located on the banks.

Big Bend Lookout is a wonderful spot on the Murray River offering great views of cliffs carved out of rock by the power of water flowing down this mighty river system. The lookout is located about 11 kilometres south of Swan Reach and is recommended as a spot to visit around sunset when the cliffs change colour with the varying light.  

These cliffs are imposing in the middle of the day and stretch in either direction from Big Bend Lookout along the Murray. It was very wind and we had trouble holding the camera still for photos. You are warned to stay behind the fence as the cliff edge is hard to judge and can be quite soft. There was a number of birds on the water and flat country stretched for miles beyond the edge of the river on the opposite side.  

Big Bend By Night is a nature based tourism business that operates from a family farm near Swan Reach offering a range of tours along this section of the Murray River. They not only show you the cliffs at sunset but offer spotlighting to view a variety of native animals in their natural habitat. They also offer breakfast tours for people travelling down the river on houseboats.
