"up and coming "suburb""

I have seen house prices rise from $20-$40k 8 years ago to $150-$170k now. but Tailem Bend hasn't reached its potential YET... there is still a lot of cheaper land around and Murray Bridge is getting wider. I believe give another 20 years and it will become a suburb of Murray Bridge. definitely a "HOTSPOT" and an area to keep an eye on...

"Popular town with people who like the water"

gets its name as the Murray River has a big bend here at Tailem Bend

"Searching for soul in this roadstop town"

Situated high on the cliffs of the Mighty River Murray just 90 kilometres from Adelaide, this road-house town is situated on the major highway heading from Adelaide to Melbourne. It is the major pit-stop for truckies and travellers alike, and is full of petrol stations and fast food joints.

The population is very small, and the town offers the most basic shops and facilities. Fortunately however Murray Bridge, the state's 5th largest town, is only a short drive away.

It is really hard to get a true feel for the town, as it has a very temporary feel due to all the traffic passing through.

It has some good recreational facilities, including a golf course and easy access to the River Murray for watersports.
