Swan Reach


Swan Reach is a river port in South Australia 127 km north-east of Adelaide on the Murray River between Blanchetown and Mannum in South Australia. It is on the left (or east) bank of the river. The Swan Reach Ferry is a cable ferry crossing operated by the state government as part of the state's road network. Swan Reach, with all parts below Lock #1, is also one of the lowest parts of the river. It is currently (2009–2010) about 1.5 metres below its normal level. At the 2006 census, Swan Reach had a population of 235.

Swan Reach is a small town on the Murray River in South Australia. The Aboriginal name for this town means large number of Black Swans so keep an eye out when visiting this town. Swan Reach has been affected by a number of floods over the years and there are photos in the local museum of the 1956 flood when a large portion of the buildings on the main street were washed away. 

A vehicular ferry service operates here (24 hours a day 7 days a week) and the Swan Reach Holiday Park is located close to the boat ramp – great for boating and fishing. There is an golf course on the edge of town and we were surprised to see one of the holes right next to the road as you turn into town – I wonder how many balls have bounced down the road. 

The Swan Reach Hotel is built on a hill with great views over the river.  This seems to be a nice little relaxing place for a holiday.

Graetz Lookout is just north of Swan Reach with another opportunity to pull off the road and take photos of the mighty Murray.
