  • During our honeymoon, my wife and I chose the night tour offered by the Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary ... beautiful experience to do absolutely!! The tour starts at sunset and consists of a one and a half hour in the park where the animals live in complete freedom, accompanied by the guide that provides valuable explanations about the nightlife of the wildlife of Kangaroo Island. Strolling among the thousands of eucalyptus trees we saw lots of koalas, some who slept others who ate, all beautiful!! We also had the good fortune to see the elusive Possum! Many, of course, kangaroos and Wallabies! It was a very nice tour, very interesting to learn about animal nightlife! If you visit Kangaroo Island you should not miss it!

  • You can see wild koala, kangaroo and other animals that they should are not keep in cage. There are about 40 koala hanging on the trees. You cannot touch the animals in there but it is good to see they can live naturally without human feeding.
  • The highlight of Kangaroo Island. For $9 you could stroll around the estate, searching for Koala hiding in the Eucalypt trees. We saw 15 in 1 hour including 2 about 7 feet up in the trees. The staff were really friendly and lunch and coffee in the cafe were good, wholesome offerings. For $20 you can sponsor a koala.
  • Great experience. Saw lots of Koalas up close and the staff were very friendly.
  • Great place to get up close and personal with wildlife
  • Second time here and it's my favorite spot in Australia. This is where you can get away, and see nature, including wildlife as it should be, free.
