Look no further than nature this Christmas

Stuck for Christ­mas gift ideas? A unique expe­ri­ence at Cle­land or Nara­coorte Caves might be the per­fect fit.

Expe­ri­ences can be so much more mem­o­rable than things. They bring peo­ple togeth­er, help them see the world in new ways and best of all, they don’t end up as land­fill down the track.

If you’re stuck for ideas of what to get your loved ones for Christ­mas this year, why not give them the best gift of all – a spe­cial day out in nature.

Here are two great expe­ri­ences that make the per­fect spe­cial some­thing for your spe­cial some­ones, which you can con­ve­nient­ly pur­chase online.

Cle­land Wildlife Park

Cle­land Wildlife Park is one of the best places in South Aus­tralia to get clos­er to Australia’s icon­ic native animals.

Feel­ing a potoroo tick­le your hand as you feed it, pat­ting the soft fur of a koala, or hear­ing the unique sound an emu makes are all unfor­get­table experiences.

Why not treat your loved ones to a day out in the beau­ti­ful bush set­ting, hand-feed­ing free-roam­ing kan­ga­roos, wal­la­bies, emus and potoroos, and learn­ing about their favourite ani­mals at the dai­ly keep­er talks and feed­ing times? Or go all out and spoil them with the ulti­mate gift – a koala or rep­tile hold.

You can now buy indi­vid­ual, fam­i­ly and group park entry online, with plen­ty of options to suit your needs. There’s also annu­al entry pass­es called Wild­cards’ which give you 12 months of unlim­it­ed vis­its – a great gift for peo­ple who want to expe­ri­ence the park and its fur­ry, feath­ered and scaly res­i­dents in every season.

Nara­coorte Caves

A vis­it to South Australia’s only World Her­itage site, Nara­coorte Caves, is the per­fect gift for fam­i­ly and friends who dig pale­on­tol­ogy, go sil­ly for sta­lag­mites and sta­lac­tites or are bat­ty for bats.

With fun, edu­ca­tion­al tours to suit the whole fam­i­ly, and the Caves Café serv­ing great cof­fee and a fresh menu packed with pre­mi­um local pro­duce, beer and wine, Nara­coorte Caves is a fan­tas­tic fam­i­ly hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion. Select­ed tours are now avail­able for pur­chase online.
