A scenic spot to take some selfies or group pictures. Along our way to other locations, this spot is a good break during your drive through the country.

A bit of a trip to reach but well worth it. Good view across the water to the Murray mouth and ocean beyond. Vendor caravan at the site selling good fish and chips.

The lookout which you can see The 'mighty' Murray river twist and bend until it reaches the Great Southern ocean.
Australia's longest fresh water river meets the salty sea. If your in this beautiful coastal region of South Australia then it is a interesting sight to see and explore.
There is a weir that stops the salt water from going futher into the Murray fresh water to be viewed. Its a nice place to visit if your keen. Lots of bird life, sea and sand dunes.

The Murray Mouth may seem like an anticlimax for some people but it is a gem. Standing on Hindmarsh Island at the mouth of the mighty Murray River you can see across to Mundoo Island and the Younghusband Peninsula. The opening to the Southern Ocean is plain to see and the surf breaking into the river entrance. Fur seals can often be seen in the waters at the Mouth. This area attracts many different birds and lizards, and plants. As the silt of the river making its way to the sea builds up a dredge is sometimes in operation keeping the natural flow open. A great place to inhale deeply and just let your cares go.

yes it's not the most spectacular or amazing attraction but it's definitely iconic. best enjoyed as part of a drive. my suggested itinerary is;
Milang- historic buildings/lake alexandria
clayton bay- nice views of lake
goolwa- wharf and murray lakes barrage
the view of the hindmarsh bridge from the wharf is a great pic.
hindmarsh island is a nice rural setting that has a couple of nice beaches and accommodation options. worth the drive from goolwa
