Big Bend By Night

Our latest Tourism Champion is Big Bend By Night located in Swan Reach, Murray River.

Established by David LeBrun and his daughter, Mardi in 1999, Big Bend By Night is a nature based tourism business located on the family farm. The business offers a range of experiences from nocturnal wildlife tours to outback pub tours and shearing shed shows.

Big Bend By Night has seen visitor numbers increase by around 20 per cent per year with the business now welcoming approximately 10,000 people on their tours each year.

The business offers casual employment to local shearers for the weekly shearing show and local drivers to take customers on tours. They currently have four casual drivers on the books and offer educational shearing shows to school groups twice a week through Murray River Educational Nature Tours.
