Teal Point: Where To Go / Sightseeing
Barham Bridge over Murray River
Bridges are not just functional, they can also be scenic and engineering attractions. Spare a few minutes to admire Barham Bridge over Murray Creek.
The Murray around Barham was settled by graziers, mainly from Victoria, in the 1840s. By 1850 all the really desirable water-frontages on both sides of the Murray had been taken up as far upstream as Barham while the open plain to the north in New South Wales was only notionally divided into undeveloped backblocks. Barham station itself had a 32 kilometre frontage on the Murray, carrying a modest head of cattle in the mid Victorian period under a series of owners. With similar developments on the Loddon River, which converges with the Murray north of Barham, a crossing of the Murray was needed and a ferry was provided for stock and people.

Teal Point: Events
Murrabit Country Market
The Murrabit Country Market is reputedly the largest market in regional Australia. From its small beginnings in 1977, the market has continued to grow. The first Saturday of every month (and Easter Saturday and the third Saturday in December) an astonishing transformation takes place when over 200 stalls open for business. Wares from fresh home grown produce, carefully crafted glass and woodenware, recycled iron, plants, craft, bric-a-brac, hardware, tools, fishing gear and clothing are there to delight the purchaser.
Aromas of freshly cooked barbecues and hot food fill the air and morning tea at the hall, consisting of cappuccinos, scones, sandwiches and sumptuous cakes is not to be missed. Live entertainment adds to the relaxed atmosphere and popular entertainers perform at each of the markets.
After the market, enjoy a two minute drive to the Murray River and try some fishing for the much sought after Murray Cod. Or view the Murrabit bridge, the first all-steel bridge to be built over the Murray River between Victoria and New South Wales back in 1926.
