Tailem Bend - Fast Facts

Tailem Bend
Important transport centre built on a cliff overlooking the Murray River.
Located 99 km east of Adelaide and 21 metres above sea level, Tailem Bend is one of those Australian towns where no one really knows the origins of its name. Some people argue that it is a corruption of the Ngarrindjeri word 'thelim' meaning 'bend' (as the town is located near a very major bend in the river). Others insist the origins go back to Donald Gollan, one of the early European settlers, who called his property 'Taleam'. Still others say it has something to do with cutting tails off sheep and others argue that it was Aboriginal advice on how to get cattle to swim across the Murray 'bendem tail, boss' which sounds truly dubious.
