Warrawong Wildlife Sanctuary was first established in 1969 when dairy land was revegetated with native trees and shrubs to attract native animals and birds. In 1982 the 35 acres was enclosed with feral-proof fencing. Once the fence was completed, the bird population flourished and the release of many native animals began, including the elusive platypus.

On 1st January 1985, Warrawong opened to the general public for the first time.  Today, Warrawong is home to 100 species of birds and many native mammals, most of which are nocturnal and highly endangered.

Warrawong offers a unique opportunity to get amongst the Australian bush and wildlife in a protected habitat. The Sanctuary is only 25 minutes from the Adelaide CBD, so make a trip to Warrawong, one of your things to do!

In addition to providing a safe haven for rare and endangered native animals, we also are environmentally friendly.  We recycle all paper, cardboard, glass, plastic, cartons and green waste; re-use all our fax and copy paper, use all our own water and have restricted shower heads and dual-flush toilets in cabins and bathrooms.  Energy efficient light bulbs are used wherever possible.

Warrawong means: water on the side of the hill, so don’t expect anything but a steep hill to descend and come back up….  Sturdy walking shoes essential!

The walking paths at Warrawong are not wheelchair friendly due to the gradient, but our cafe, outdoor dining area deck and animal show area are ALL wheelchair friendly.
