Kingston-on-Murray (including Moorook)
Small township on the Murray River
Kingston-on-Murray is a small township (population around 300) located 214 km north-east of Adelaide on the mighty Murray River. It lies in the heart of a rich agricultural district and the area around the town is characterised by vineyards and orchards. The town is important as one of the major Murray River crossing points and it was common for cars and trucks to be waiting for the ferry on both sides of the river. This changed when a new bridge was constructed taking the Sturt Highway around the edge of the town.
