The Jungle in Willunga is an exciting nursery where the owners love exotic plants so much that they have created an extensive walk-through rainforest area. The rainforest area is enjoyable to walkthrough and includes signage educating visitors about the plants. Different flowers will bloom in season.

At intervals, you may meet an animal or bird (mostly statues, although there is one real pet dog) and a children's climbing net has been set up in the centre of the jungle area. Parents must of course supervise their children playing on the climbing net, but comfortable benches are provided for this purpose.

A gold coin donation may be placed in the orange tin nailed to one of the palms at the entrance (or exit) depending which direction you progressed through the jungle. This is pretty reasonable given most displays cost to visit nowadays.

After enjoying the jungle display, you can shop in the nursery where the range of plants, garden ornaments and pots is absolutely breath-taking. Expert advice is also available on growing bamboos and tropical plants in the South Australian climate.
