You will laugh your head off, scream yourself silly and have the absolute time of your life as these enormous beasts follow you for just one more tidbit.
After all this, you continue to the Window on the Wetlands Visitor Centre for views over the vitally important Marrakai Plains that comprises an ecologically significant portion of the drainage and catchment for the amazing Adelaide River.

Enjoy the peace and tranquillity as you immerse yourself in one of nature’s miracles.
