Murray Bridge Things to Do

  • TAKE A RIDE ON THE PADDLESTEAMER

    Sturt Reserve.. So nice, I suggest you come down here when in Murray Bridge. I have enjoyed many picnics here, and Paddlesteamer rides over the years, and I recommend that you do one, as it is a wonderful way to view the Murray.Paddlesteamer, "Captain Proud," was originally built as the Proud Lady in 1977 and worked as one of the original showboats...

  • MONARTO ZOO INFO CENTRE

    What an amazing centre this is!Spread around the shop, are hides from various animals which you can feel and read information about. What I liked, was the "touch" table, where there were horns, heads, all types of bones, it really was quite interesting feeling what they were like. Some were that pointy and sharp it would be a nasty accident if you...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For some reason we tend to choose our eating houses by looks; though it's fair to assume many of you do the same. This place looked like it had good food and it did not disappoint. It was probably our equal best dining experience in S.A.
    The walls are lined with photos of old paddle steamers and other historic memorabilia of Murray Bridge which I personally found interesting also.

    Favorite Dish: Since it was cold we had a soup that was delicious and followed it up with something basic like toasted sanwiches but we couldn't help notice the table next to us had something more substantial that looked very tempting and, when we questioned them, they confirmed it was as good as it looked.

    Jigsaws @ Monarto zoo 1 more image

    Gifts for children are easy to find at the Monarto Zoo Gift shop.
    I liked the wooden jigsaws of Australian animals, a really nice gift for children from overseas. There are pens, pencil cases, caps and hats, all sorts of things with Australian animals and Australia on them.
    They looked to be good quality.

    Adoption

    by balhannah Written Jul 25, 2012

    I am not sure if other Zoo's in the World do this or not, but here in Australia, you can adopt an animal.

    What this means, is you can adopt your favourite animal from Adelaide Zoo, Monarto Zoo and Warrawong Wildlife Sanctuary, including the Giant Panda.
    The money goes to the conservation charity, which means your donation goes towards supporting conservation activities, including breeding programs, health checks, housing and rehabilitaiton programs.

    COST...Level 1.....$70 - $175
    20% adult entry discount voucher to visit your adopted friend

    Level 2...$176 - $550
    50% adult entry discount voucher to visit your adopted friend

    Level 3...$551+
    Opportunity to visit your adopted animal free of charge and personal invitation to meet with the Zoo Keeper of your adopted animal.

    In addition, all animal adopters receive an Animal adoption certificate, a photo of your adopted animal, information sheet about your adopted animal, your own copy of the quarterly Zoo Times magazine and recognition on one of the Zoo's official supporter boards.

    You can even buy an adoption as a Birthday, Christmas or some other sort of gift for your loved one.
