Monarto Safari Park is a 1,500 hectare open-range animal sanctuary, the largest of its kind in the world.
Great for an all day excursion! Casual cafe/restaurant to refuel or bring your own picnic. The zoo to visit if you're interested in the bigger animals. The giraffe platform is a must visit to see the giraffes up close.
Monarto Zoo is a brilliant day to visit the animals. Ensure to wear your walking shoes! You can pack your own food/drink for the day as they have various picnic spots to sit, eat and admire the animals.
Amazing open plain zoo. Fantastic guided tours. Lovely playground and cafe. The chimpanzee enclosure is a must.

“Best described by The Naracoorte Caves people themselves; About Naracoorte Caves The Naracoorte Caves are part of the 800,000-year-old Naracoorte East Range. They are World Heritage-listed, and one of the world’s most important fossil sites. For half a million years the caves acted as pitfall traps and predator dens. Animals would fall in through a hole in the ground and not be able to escape. Bones collected – layer upon layer, year after year – creating a rich fossil record of the ancient animals that roamed the area. The fossil record covers several ice ages and the arrival of humans in the area. Palaeontologists have excavated and dated many of the fossils in Naracoorte Caves. They have reconstructed the skeletons of many of the megafauna that lived so many years ago. Of the 28 known caves in the park, four are open to the public. Other caves are set aside for scientific research or to protect the caves and their contents. Many of the caves contain spectacular stalactites and stalagmites. With the caves staying at a constant 17 degrees centigrade, Naracoorte Caves is a destination for all seasons. We offer self-guided, guided and adventure caving tours year-round.”
“Held at the Mount Pleasant Showgrounds every Saturday morning from 8am-12pm. Artisans, growers and producers offer plenty of fresh, seasonal local produce and fare. Yum!”
