Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary is located between Flinders Chase National Park and Kelly Mountain Conservation Park. It is an ideal paradise for viewing the wild nature of Kangaroo Island. It is easy to meet koalas, kangaroos, and Tamara. Wallabies, possums, echidna and other wild animals with Australian characteristics will come across unexpectedly. You can also participate in a guided "90-minute nocturnal animal discovery tour". Not only that, the reserve also provides 6 independent sea view cabins, only 100 meters away from Hanson Bay Beach, where you can swim and fish. We didn’t stay in a sea view cabin, but on the way to Flinders Chase National Park, we turned to Hanson Bay Beach for a short while. It was a quiet and relaxing beach, just like living in these 6 sea views. Private beach with people in the hut. Recreational fishing here must comply with the fishing rules. There are detailed regulations on the size and quantity of fish that can be fished, and the fish that cannot be fished. Violators can be fined up to 20,000 Australian dollars depending on the severity of the circumstances! If you like hiking, you can also hike about 18 kilometers back and forth from here, through the primitive jungle and two lagoons in the jungle, to Kelly Hills Caves in Kelly Hill Conservation Park.

Close contact with animals cannot conceal the excitement. During the Mid-Autumn Festival, I went to the hanson bay wildlife sancluary on Kangaroo Island with my friends. In order to watch the kangaroos up close, we were in a family near the hanson bay wildlife sancluary. Stay in a hotel by the sea; as we all know, hanson bay wildlife sancluary is an ideal paradise for watching kangaroos. In addition, we can also play with koalas. In fact, we are very grateful to the keepers for their company. Smooth close contact with the animals. Best travel season When we were playing, the local guide told us that the best season to come here is autumn, because autumn is the favorite season for kangaroos, but if you go in winter, you won’t see kangaroos. It was spring when we went, and it was just getting warmer at that time, so we didn't see many kangaroos, but we were still very happy; because we could see the sea in addition to animals.

Hanson Bay is only 9 kilometers away from the visitor center of Flinders Chase National Park, which can be reached in 10 minutes. It used to be a farm in the 1960s until it was sold in 1997 and officially renamed as Hanson Bay wildlife sanctuary. This is a typical wilderness area in South Australia, with pristine beaches, magnificent coastlines, ancient marine jungles and diverse wildlife. Make this one of Australia's most awesome places. Here you can get close to koalas, kangaroos, tamar wallabies, possums, echidnas and monitor lizards, etc., so in recent years it has also been popular among tourists. Wild animals in Australia mostly appear at night. Dawn and dusk are also the most active times for animals. This wildlife sanctuary provides Nocturnal Walk (30 AU/person) and Kola Walk (9 AU/person). The former is accompanied by a guide to observe the animals in the reserve after dark. The time is 90 minutes and requires an appointment. The latter is to go to the open area to look for wild animals such as koalas and kangaroos. Because we have seen too many hit kangaroos on the side of the road, our friends resolutely resisted the open night road, so we chose the latter and plan to stay in hanson bay until the sun goes down to see if we are lucky enough to meet These cute little guys. It was just after three o’clock when we arrived in Hanson Bay. The staff said that we only need to leave before 17:30 to participate in Kola Walk, so we planned to rest at the visitor center first, and waited until 4:30 to depart. We did not expect that we did not wait for sunset. Instead, we waited until the top of the dark clouds before going to the island. When we realized that the weather was wrong, the eucalyptus forest had been blown down by the wind. Where there was the shadow of koala, we braved the wind to see the kangaroo pasture. Fortunately, the driver's brother used a telescope to see a large group of kangaroos by the bushes, and a few of them were still grazing on the pasture. The logistics minister wrapped his jacket tightly and walked towards them while avoiding the star-studded kangaroo feces, but when we approached, these guys looked at us alertly, turned and jumped away, leaving only me and the logistics director in the wind. It’s messy..... The standard jumping posture is not beautiful anyway. Until we left, we saw a koala, a big ant and several kangaroos. Feeling sister was surrounded by hundreds of kangaroos. There is still a long distance to the request, but it is too late, we can only go home. Back in the car, a warm feeling made me drowsy. There is still more than an hour’s drive from Kingscote. The driver's brother guessed that I looked pitiful, and said you squint for a while, I The strong fighting spirit came and said "No, I have to help you watch the kangaroos. I have a hunch that we will meet at least two or three." So we really met three kangaroos crossing the road on the way back. My friends "praised" my crow's mouth all the way. TIP: Because there are too many wild animals on Kangaroo Island (as well as other wilderness in South Australia), it is especially easy to encounter animals crossing the road when driving. In addition, Australian wild animals are mostly seen at night, so we did not miss it along the road To the very exaggerated brake marks and the kangaroo body, if you are not confident in your driving skills, it is recommended not to rush into the night. At that time, we wanted to keep up with the car in front of us, but we didn’t expect people to drive too fast and there would be no shadows as soon as the smoke slipped. So we had to turn on the high beam and slowly turn on. Fortunately, all the kangaroos we encountered jumped from right to left , There is still time to respond in advance In short, it is better not to drive at night. If you must drive, please drive carefully.
