Escape to a new world

Begin your Desert adventure here

Just a short 20 minute drive from Barooga/Cobram is a Mexican escape where you can view 1000's of types of Cacti in a desert like environment. With music to fit the theme, and friendly staff its a fun adventure for friends and family. You can even buy a cactus before you go and they are affordable!

Here is mine, it was only $6

Mammillaria Hahniana - Old Lady

With activities and prizes for kids, you can easily spend hours enjoying this very different experience. Take a self guided tour exploring over 4000 different species - its incredible to see the hard work this family business has done!

Deserts include; Mexico, Africa and North and South America

After exploring the many types of Deserts and types of Cacti you can relax at the Cactus Cafe and get ready for the drive back home!

It is an experience hard to pass by, Cactus Country is a wonderful Mexican escape from the busy city or town life.
