The Roundhouse captures the history of the first permanent bridge to span the Murray River. Built for Mr Henry Parker, superintendent overseeing bridge construction works in 1874, this unusual hexagonal shaped historical residence enhances spectacular views of the river and bridges. State Heritage and National Estate listed the building as has been lovingly restored and maintained by local volunteers who are part of the Murray Bridge and Districts Historical Society.
The Roundhouse was the first substantial building in Murray Bridge and has significant historical value to the early development of the town serving as a School, Post Office, Church and Council chambers. After exploring the beautiful homestead and the history contained within, enjoy a Devonshire tea with scones in the immaculate cottage gardens as you soak in the breathtaking views.
Located in the heart of the city adjacent to the bridges and walking distance from the main street (Bridge street). Open most weekends and public holidays 11am-3pm or for appointments and bookings ie weddings, wedding photos, Devonshire tea, tours, bus tours, school groups and general hire.
