Riverside Holiday Park - Blanchetown - Blanchetown SA

Riverside Holiday Park - Blanchetown is located at 16 Sanders St - E , Blanchetown. Blanchetown is where the Murray River’s lock and weir water flow management system starts. The system was constructed along the river in the 1920s and 1930s to help control the water level so that cargo and paddle steamers would always be able to navigate the waterways.

The old bridge in the town gives an excellent view of Lock 1 and circling above are hundreds of hungry pelicans that love to feed on the schools of fish near the spillway as can be seen in the main photo. Here you can also get a great view of the large riverboats that pull into Blanchetown weekly.Before the Bridge was built traffic crossed the River on a Ferry.The first Blanchetown bridge was opened in 1964 by Sir Thomas Playford. The bridge's main claim to fame is that it was the first major prestressed concrete girder highway bridge built in South Australia. It replaced the Blanchetown ferry crossing which had been used since 1869. It cost £510,000 to build. Peaceful, quiet and tranquil are appropriate descriptions of Riverside Holiday Park, set in a large lawned area right on the edge of the mighty River Murray. We are right next to the first lock, built on the river in 1922, and also within 4 minutes walking distance of the oldest hotel built on the Murray.

There are 15 powered sites available for caravans, campers and motorhomes. On site accommodation is also available and may include cabins and on site caravans.  We would like to add more information to this description so if you have stayed at this park would you kindly add your own review and comments using the form below.
