Berri Ferry Landing
The historic Berri ferry landing served as the major riving crossing between the settlements of Loxton and Berri. In 1926 the Berri District Council agreed with C.A. Muller to purchase his punt and move up river closer to the Berri township. Over many years the ferry operated with passengers, vehicles, machinery, goods and livestock making the crossing, the quality of the ferry structure improving with time up until the Berri Bridge was constructed in 1997.
