Tailem Bend

The northern gateway to the Limestone Coast, Tailem Bend lies alongside the majestic Murray River. It is a commercial centre for the surrounding mallee area and offers excellent facilities and points of interest for travellers making it an ideal stopover or destination.

Tailem Bend also provides a great starting point for four wheel drive vehicle adventures into Mount Rescue or Ngarkat Conservation Parks and offers a fantastic experience on the Murray. Visit Fred's Landing to launch a boat and enjoy a spot of fishing on the river.

The Tailem Bend Visitor Information Centre details the town's strong historical links with transport and the importance the railway played in opening up the surrounding towns, while Old Tailem Town provides a fascinating step back in time into an original mallee township comprising 70 authentic historic buildings from the area.
