"A fabulous place to bring up children, safe and great schools - Dartmoor ct is close to all of this"

Naracoorte is the sort of place children can ride bikes, lots of sporting facilities and a big sporting complex with basketball, squash, tennis, soccer, football, netball and tennis.
Primary Schools are at each end of the town - around 350 mark with a private Christian school - 2 plus a High School on par with any private school in Adelaide - child care facilities and 2 kindergartens with OSHS> large, free swimming lake for summer.
Good shopping for white goods, furniture, target, dress shops etc with lots of banks and a plaza - big woolworths and foodland. All services.
100 km from the beach for a good day out in the surf....and 2.5 hours from the Grampians can also be a weekend or days outing, 1 hours from Mt. Gambier for bigger shopping and half way between Adelaide and Melbourne - 3-4 hours each.
Wine region 20 minutes south with a range of fab. cellar doors and the Little Desert National park 30 minutes to the north.

"A perfect spot for a rural life with all the mod cons"

Picturesque Naracoorte is the gateway to the south-east. Situated 350 kilometres to the southeast of Adelaide and 100 kilometres to the north of Mt Gambier, Naracoorte is a thriving farming town.

With a population of nearly 5,000, Naracoorte offers all of the essential facilities, a range of shops and pubs, a hospital and both a primary and secondary school.

The streets are wide and leafy, the homes are spacious with homely gardens. It is a neat and tidy town with a true sense of community. Sport is alive and well, with the town competing in the regional football and netball competitions. Close to the Coonawarra wine region, Naracoorte has a strong emphasis on good food and wine, holding a number of gourmet events throughout the year.
