Adelaide Dolphin Sanctuary

Zoos, Sanctuaries, Aquariums and Wildlife Parks

The Adelaide Dolphin Sanctuary provides a home to one of Adelaide’s best-loved creatures, the Bottlenose Dolphin. These wild dolphins come here to eat, play, socialise and live and can be seen most days from both water and land look outs.

The sanctuary is one of the gems of metropolitan Adelaide. Including the Port River, Barker Inlet, Outer Harbour and North Haven marinas, reaching as far north as Port Gawler. Located only 20 minutes from the city, the area features a 10,000-year-old mangrove forest and over 40 resident bottlenose dolphins, while another 300 dolphins visit the area regularly.

The area is also popular for its natural wonders, birdlife and water activities, making it one of the best and most easily accessible Dolphin Sanctuaries in the world.

Other wildlife that can easily be spotted are sting rays, long nosed fur seals and endangered Australian sea lions. The area is also a popular bird watching site and shares most of its northern coastal habitat with the Adelaide International Bird Sanctuary.

Why not come along and try your hand at fishing, dolphin watching, bird watching, kayaking and paddle boarding.
