Monash is a small town in the Riverland area of South Australia. It is on the Sturt Highway between Barmera and Renmark.
Monash was proclaimed in 1921 and is named after General Sir John Monash, a World War I army commander. The primary industry is irrigated horticulture and viticulture.
Monash is in the Berri Barmera Council, state electoral district of Chaffey, and federal Division of Barker.
Monash is best known in South Australia as the home of a major adventure playground for adults as well as children with tall, fast and twisty slippery dips and other equipment. This was built be the local engineering company, and open for free public use. Concerns about public liability led to its scaling down and eventual closure. It reopened in 1996 without the high towers, but with better picnic facilities and less “dangerous” equipment now including a giant maze.
