Upstream from Murray Ridge is the idyllic town of Mannum. Historic pubs, such as the Pretoria and Mannum hotels, line the banks of the Murray River. So too does the world-renowned Hermann Gass Bird Sanctuary. Nestled amongst the River Red Gum Trees, the boardwalk and riverside picnic facilities are the perfect places to spot a wide variety of birdlife.
For those looking for a little more adventure, there is also the Mannum Waterfalls. The one-kilometre, steep walk along Reedy Creek is well worth it, particularly in the winter months following the rain.
