Hanson Bay Sanctuary Tours
Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary offers self guided day time and guided nocturnal tours. It is one of the most reliable wildlife viewing areas on Kangaroo Island. It is a true sanctuary for wild animals and is 5000 acres in size. It is the home range of many koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, echidna, goanna, Cape Barren geese and over 40 other species of birds. Because most of the wildlife is nocturnal we recommend a nocturnal tour otherwise the best viewing is early morning and late afternoon.
Day time visitors may stay all day. Sit and relax after a stroll with the Koala's and enjoy a cup of our fantastic coffee and delicious local biscuits. Or stay for a homemade light lunch.
Take a guided 90 minute nocturnal walk with one of our experienced tour guides. Discover and learn about the nocturnal animals of Kangaroo Island in their natural habitat and environment. View koalas, Tammar wallabies, kangaroos, echidnas, bats and possums when they are most active. Take in the spectacular view of the Great Southern Skies on this fun, exciting and educational discovery walk. Our guided nocturnal walk commences at sunset (bookings essential) and is a must for all international guests.
