About the Walking Trail
Sanders Walk trail is a shared-use trail loop around the Rocky Gully Wetlands, and following waterways to Hume Reserve on the Murray River. It follows a short 3.5km section of the 325km Lavender Federation Trail.
The Rocky Gully Wetlands is located off Mannum Road just outside the Murray Bridge CBD and is part of The Lavender Federation Trail. The wetlands are home to many native bird species and are designed so that visitors can walk in a loop and capture all the wetland has to offer.
The trail was re-named the Sanders Walk in 2014 to honour the man behind glorifying the area, the late Fred Sanders. Fred Sanders led a group of volunteers to develop the Rocky Gully Wetland from what was a salt crusted mud flat back in 1997 to the current wetlands.
