You’re invited to celebrate the Adelaide Shorebird and Dolphin Festival as Park of the Month this November. The Adelaide Shorebird and Dolphin Festival will be featuring numerous events held at various locations along the coast.

The Adelaide Dolphin Sanctuary is one of the gems of metropolitan Adelaide. Located only 20 minutes from Adelaide, this marine park is home to around 30 resident bottlenose dolphins, with another 400 transient dolphins that visit at various times. These wild dolphins come here to feed, play, socialise and nurse their calves.
