Today Andrew and I decided to go to Warrawong Wildlife Sanctury in the Adelaide Hills.

We arrived there at about 1.30pm. It is free admission but there are a few activities that if you want to do, you have to pay for.

Andrew thought that going to the 2pm Animal Show would be good, so we paid the $5 each. They showed us some of the Australian spiders, frogs, a turtle, a blue tongue lizard and of course a snake.  There was also an Emu wandering around the enclosure.

It is quite informative and would be a great place to take an overseas visitor.

After the show (almost 3pm), we thought we would walk around, which we did but as we did not buy a map, we weren't too sure which path to take.  We went to the boardwalk and did see lots of birds, some turtles and finally saw 1 platypus.

It was on our way out that we finally saw some kangaroos

Unfortunately the sanctury closes at 4pm so we didn't go too far.  We will go back though and make sure that we give ourselves plenty of time to wander around.

They do have noctural walk that we my do at sometime as well. We might even stay there one night. They do have a few options.

I did take some photos but next time hope to get more as I couldn't get one of the Platypus. It was playing but not close enough for my camera.
