Feel like a wild wildlife adventure or five?
We've put together our top picks of the most adrenaline packed, unique and sometimes cuddly wildlife experiences, all found in the amazing ocean lined nature reserve that is South Australia.
Swap sides with the awe-inspiring King of the Jungle as you get in the cage to let one of Australia's largest lion prides get a good look at you - from outside the enclosure. You'll be (very safely) within clawing range of these awe inspiring animals as they wander above and around you, showing off their majestic beauty and fierce instincts. Make a day of it by exploring all the amazing animals on display at Monarto - the largest open-air zoo in Australia.
Get ready for a heart racing, leg shaking, memory making experience like no other. A huge day on and in the Southern Ocean will take you south of Port Lincoln to the land (or sea) or the Great White Sharks. Here, you'll put on your wetsuit, get your camera ready, descend into the cage........and then........boo!
Do it now!
Swim, twirl, splash and maybe even nose-kiss with the "puppies of the sea". The gorgeous, interactive sea lions take great delight in visitors to their patch and are great at posing for the camera. So get your (waterproof) camera ready, because you're going to become VERY snap happy.
And then try wipe the smile off your face for a month or so.

They don't call them "The Ferraris of the Sea" for nothing. You'll be totally blown away by the speed, power and accuracy of the huge Blue Fin Tunas as you swim amongst them in a purpose built pontoon.
Feed them from your hand for a real buzz!
Time for some warm and fuzzy feels. Head up to the beautiful Adelaide Hills to the perfectly situated Cleland Wildlife Park and get all gooey when you feed the koalas, chill with the kangaroo and feel the surprising exhiliration of offering an emu a snack - from the palm of your hand.
Don't close your eyes.
