Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary
Iconic Australian wildlife is showcased by the sanctuary, and the visitor centre can give you the best advice on spotting koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas and more. Located at the start of the Koala Walk, the Visitors Centre also provides visitors to the park with refreshments, and local art and souvenirs. As well as providing information, the Visitors Centre offers self-guided tours of the sanctuary, including nocturnal tours.
Fully guided, 90 minute walks, the nocturnal tours are led by experienced tour guides. A nocturnal tour provides a wealth of information on the animals and their habitats, observing animals more active at night such as koalas, echidnas, possums, bats and more.
Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary is just under two hours’ drive from Kingscote. The visitors centre is open from 8am daily. Noctural tours are $24 for adults, and $14-19 for children. Self-guided tours are $6 for adults and $3 for under 12s.
