Are you ready to explore the wild?
Discover the largest safari experience outside of Africa. Spanning more than 1,500 hectares and home to more than 50 species of exotic and native animals, you can fit every major Australian zoo within Monarto Safari Park and still have land left over!
70% of the species at Monarto are threatened or vulnerable to extinction in the wild and each time you visit, you are helping to continue their vital work to save animals from extinction and connect people with nature.
As a not-for-profit organisation, your support helps both Monarto Safari Park and their conservation partners on the ground around Australia and the world.
Walk the wild
Breathe in the fresh air, stretch your legs and explore the open plains of Monarto Safari Park. With 12kms of walking trails between the new Visitor Centre and animal viewing platforms, you can walk the entire trail or combine a walk with the bus. The majority of the walking trails are accessible for robust pushers and wheelchairs and are signposted throughout.
Relax and Play in the wild
Monarto Safari Park also has a number of nature-inspired play areas where kids can run free range. Stop at the cafe for a leisurely coffee taking in the stunning view as the kids let loose in the nearby playground. Take five in the rhino Boma area as kids become safari rangers and cool off in the sprinklers alongside a mob of mischievous meerkats. And after a day exploring and playing don’t be surprised if it’s a very quiet car ride home… sssshhhhh
