Warrawong Wildlife Sanctuary

By  | 

Warrawong Wildlife Sanctuary is open to the public!

Warrawong Wildlife Sanctuary is an Australian conservation icon, nestled in the beautiful Adelaide Hills. The land, a dairy at the time, was originally purchased in 1969 by environmentalist John Wamsley. Dr Wamsley converted the paddocks into five native habitats, including rainforest and wetlands. He protected these habitats with a 2 metre high, feral-proof fence.

Warrawong is now a safe haven for all manner of rare and endangered native wildlife. It is also the only place on the South Australian mainland where platypus live and breed naturally.

Other wildlife includes Koalas, Potoroos, Bandicoots, Bettongs, Kangaroos, and Wallabies. Over 100 bird species have been spotted at the Sanctuary.

The Shed coffee lounge is open 7 days a week. Sit by the floor to ceiling windows and enjoy watching the beautiful birdlife. The Shed coffee lounge serves delicious light meals, great coffee and yummy cakes and slices.

Group bookings are also available for amazing, hands on and interactive wildlife shows and guided tours.

Private wildlife encounters for 2 people are also available and children are also extremely well catered for through the Junior Keeper experience.

If you can’t make it to the Sanctuary, you won’t miss out. They can bring the Sanctuary to you. Warrawong2U is a mobile wildlife sanctuary, where they bring native animals to schools, birthday parties, community groups, businesses, functions, and events.
