Wellington is a small town near where the Murray River joins Lake Alexandrina - about 110 kilometres south east of Adelaide. This was where we had our first experience on one of South Australia's vehicular ferries across the Murray River. We did not know what to expect but this is a great service operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and big enough to transport the car and caravan (a free service).

A lovely old courthouse sits beside the ferry access point on the shores of the river and is operating as a cafe. There are public toilets at the rear of this beautifl stone building. The Courthouse was built in 1864 and housed of a courtroom, police station and two cells, stables and loft as well as a post and telegraph office. 

There is a privately owned and operated caravan park near the river with plenty of shade and grassed sites for caravans and camping.  A great spot for fishing, boating and bird watching.  

The Wellington Hotel was licensed in 1848 and is one of the oldest working hotels in South Australia. This hotel is located directly opposite the Caravan Park on the banks of the River Murray with a licensed lawn area, front bar, dining room and new decking area.  Famous for great steak meals.
