Cadell is a town situated near the north western edge of South Australia’s Riverland on the inside of the large southward bend in the Murray River. The town is reported to have less than 100 inhabitants, not including the inmates of the prison. The town is named after Captain Francis Cadell, who was the navigator on Charles Sturt’s exploration of Murray River. Cadell lies in the middle of a citrus growing area and is also home to a low security prison for men, the Cadell Training Centre.
