Warrawong Wildlife Sanctuary is a story of the passion of an individual for Australian Wildlife.  The predator free fence concept was one of the first places to try to fence the bad guys out. Today Warrawong is an open range sanctuary offering protection from feral foxes, cats and dogs that prey on endangered wildlife. 

The sanctuary is home to South Australia’s only mainland population of platypuses. A guided tour at dusk gives visitors the ideal conditions to view the elusive platypus. There are a range of experiences you can book online or as you enter the sanctuary.
