Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary Tours


Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary offers guided day time and guided nocturnal tours. It is one of the most reliable wildlife viewing areas on Kangaroo Island. 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 or stay for a homemade light lunch.

We now offer guided day tours and these are perfect for time poor guests that need to see animals quickly and with expert information.

Take a guided 90 minute nocturnal walk with one of our experienced tour guides. Discover and learn about the nocturnal animals of Kangaroo Island . 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 and educational discovery walk. Our guided nocturnal walk commences at sunset (bookings essential) and is a must for all international guests.
