I added a couple of sentences about the iconic Bunyip down at Sturt Reserve. I'm not aware of when it was first installed so feel free to edit and contribute. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 203.122.237.43 (talk) 03:10, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

The article says that it was not called Murray Bridge until 1924, but I have a birth certificate from 1897 listing my Great Grandmother as being born at Murray Bridge.

Just wondering if there as an area near there known as Murray Bridge in 1897. There must have been some sort of official area known by the name in 1897, or else they wouldn't have used it on a birth certificate.

Does anyone know any more information regarding a Pre 1924 Murray Bridge area in South Australia?

I've added a link to the Murray Cods who competed in the 1924 Paris Olympics. Ozdaren 07:21, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

Population is a bit optimistic. 2006 Census has Murray Bridge's usual resident population (urban centre & locality) at 14,048, and for the whole of Murray Bridge Council at 17,678. Don't know where 18,000+ numbers come from? 203.26.122.12 (talk) 06:11, 29 May 2009 (UTC)
