Big Bend By Night

  • Children catered for

Big Bend By Night offers visitors the chance to see large numbers of kangaroos and wombats in the wild on unique spotlighting tours at Big Bend on the banks of the Murray River.

You can enjoy a bush tucker breakfast, a three course riverbank dinner while the sunset changes the colours of the sandstone cliffs, or, if travelling as a group participate in the Sunnydale Shearing Show.

There is no walking involved in the nocturnal tours just soft, comfortable padded seats in an open sided cart that is a fun experience on its own, especially on a clear starry night with Maddog and Jackdog leading the way.

Big Bend By Night also have two Mercedes Benz luxury vehicles available to take you on a Wine tasting adventure to any of the states wine regions, plus another vehicle to take guests on an outback pub tour which includes lots of bush tracks and wildlife.

All of these tours, with commentary and stories provided by the drivers are available within two hours of Adelaide.
