Attractions

There’s plenty to see and do in Langhorne Creek, which sits on the flood plains of the Bremer River with vineyards sprawling in all directions.

The picturesque farming district is well-known for its grape-growing and lucerne production, and the town is named after Alfred Langhorne, who first overlanded cattle to a cattle station that was once located where Langhorne Creek is now.

In addition to The Bridge Hotel, Langhorne Creek offers historic buildings that date back to 1850s; including the Methodist church, general store and Bleasdale Winery. While the early days of goldrush fever may be long gone, the township remains a popular destination for many wanting a short stay or enjoying a day drive to the region.

Wineries

There are plenty of cellar doors to visit, and in addition to the Bleasdale Winery, other favourite award-winning family-owned and operated wineries include Rusticana, Lake Breeze Winery and Bremerton.

Natural Attractions

Located on the aptly-named Kangaroo Road, the 843ha Ferries-McDonald Conservation Park has a wide variety of flora. Popular amongst nature lovers and bush walkers alike, this section of Mallee is home to the protected Mallee fowl, and offers a number of walking tracks across the slightly undulating countryside.

The Tolderol Game Reserve is another popular destination for visitors and can be accessed by turning off the Wellington-Langhorne Creek Road at Dog Lake Road, about 27km from Wellington.

The 230ha reserve is a drought refuge that attracts waterbirds, waterfowl and waders, including Pacific black duck, musk duck, grey teal, Australian shoveller, sharp-tailed and curlew sandpiper and red-necked stint. Keen birdwatchers may also spot sacred kingfishers, marsh harriers and terns.

Enjoy a slower pace of life in this picturesque part of South Australia and feel yourself unwind from the stresses of daily life.

And don’t forget – The Bridge Hotel is the perfect spot to stop with family and friends, watch the world go by, and unwind in true country atmosphere.
