The 5000 acre Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary is situated on the western end of Kangaroo Island, between the Kelly Hill Caves Conservation Park and the Flinders Chase National Park.
It is bordered by over 100,000 acres of protected wilderness lands and the Great Southern Ocean.
We are pleased to offer you self contained cabins. All have truly spectacular wilderness views of the beautiful turquoise waters of Hanson Bay.
We offer guided nocturnal tours and guided daytime walks of the Sanctuary so you can experience Australian native marsupials up “close and personal”.
Our Koala Walk is open every day and is recognised as the best place on Kangaroo Island to see a sustainable population of Koalas in the wild.
The Sanctuary is also a bird watchers paradise – with resident Blue Wrens, Lorikeets, Crimson Rosellas, Black Cockatoos, Bush Stone-Curlews, Crescent Honey-eaters, and Cape Barren Geese.
