Due to the recent extreme weather conditions experienced at Humbug Scrub Sanctuary, we regret to inform that this years October long weekend Family Fun Day has been CANCELLED due to the condition of the dirt tracks into and around the Sanctuary. We apologise for any inconvenience and invite you all to visit us soon.

Humbug Scrub Wildlife Sanctuary is located approximately 50 kms outside Adelaide in South Australia. Situated in natural bush setting, the Sanctuary was established by Thomas Bellchambers in 1905.

The Sanctuary is commited to the preservation of our native flora and fauna. Native Kangaroos and Emus roam freely throughout the park, giving visitors opportunities to hand feed these wonderful creatures.

Sit under a shady tree and watch Peacocks, Cape Barren Geese, Black Cockatoos,Swans and a variety of other birds in their natural habitat.

Learn more about the History of Humbug Scub Sanctuary by visiting Tom's Cottage, or just take a calming stroll along many walking paths that meander past scenic lakes and natural bushland.

Humbug Scrub Wildlife Sanctuary is a private sanctuary, staffed by volunteers and is the oldest Sanctuary in South Australia. The Sanctuary is a registered charity and all donations are tax deductible.
