    •   Show me: a map of Monash

The Riverland town of Monash, 12 km north-west of Berri, was named in honour of General Sir John Monash, highly decorated commander of the Australian troops in World War I. The general has also given his name to the town’s Adventure Park. The park was opened in 1996 and has rapidly established itself as the Riverland’s prime family destination. Entrance to the wonderland is free and the park offers a giant maze, leaning climbing towers, flying foxes, a tree house, a rope bridge, basketball courts and just about any piece of play equipment your child or grandchild could imagine.

Mums, Dads and grandparents get their reward by visiting the vineyards of the area, on Nixon Road and the Sturt Highway, as well as nearby Berri, Glossop and Renmark.

A short drive west takes the visitor to Barmera and Lake Bonney, which was the focus of world attention in 1964 when English swashbuckler Donald Campbell clocked 347.5 kph aboard his hydroplane, Bluebird, but failed to break the then world water speed record of 416.66 kph. An obelisk on Queen Elizabeth Drive commemorates Campbell's attempt.
