Humbug Scrub Sanctuary is located about 50km north-east of Adelaide and is a huge wildlife sanctuary full of animals and wildflowers for kids to explore. It was established in 1905 and is situated in a natural bush setting. The Sanctuary is committed to the preservation of our native flora and fauna and there’s plenty of native wildlife roaming freely in the park. You’ll have the chance to feed kangaroos and emus, while also watching peacocks, Cape Barren geese, black cockatoos, swans and lots more! There’s Tom’s Cottage, where you can learn more about the sanctuary, or just go for a stroll along the many walking paths that meander through the lakes and natural bushland.
Humbug Scrub Wildlife Sanctuary is a private sanctuary, staffed by volunteers and is the oldest private Sanctuary in South Australia.
