Its range of AridSmart plants will not only reduce your water bills but will bring the beauty of Australia's plants into your garden.
My wife is a fantastic gardener so this visit was a must. After having a great lunch we ventured out in the sun and did a walkabout! Lots to see and the plants are well marked and named. Make sure you read the info signs...MoreHi Smoltman, Thanks for the review - I'm really glad you got to explore our beautiful garden.

The top level is within what used to be the water tank. It has 4 large windows cut into the sides and a wooden floor. You can stop and look at views from each level on the way up but the top level has the best views. Toilets are in the park across the road from the water tower.

The hotel had a pleasant dining room with good food at reasonable prices. We contacted the owner and he picked us from our caravan park in the courtesy van - then after the meal returned us to our caravan sites. This is a handy initiative...MoreThank you for acknowledging our effort in trying to make your Port Augusta stay more enjoyable.

The Port Augusta Scout Group attended the train park for their linking ceremony in May and had an absolute ball!!! The volunteers were more than accomodating and great with the kids. Everyone (including parents and leaders) had a ride on the trains... This incuded a lap with our Cub Leader holding our flag. It's great to see all the fantastic work that has been done at the park. I Highly Recommend the Park to everyone of all ages, great prices and an adventure like no other in Port Augusta. Thanks for the great day guys!!!
