Karakamia Wildlife Sanctuary

The name “Karakamia” is an aboriginal word meaning home of the Red-tailed Black Cockatoos; so named because at dusk the air is filled with the sound of their “karak, karak” call.  Visitors can experience the magic of Karakamia Sanctuary by participating in a two hour guided walk at dusk. Setting off along a bush track just before sunset, you are likely to see a number of nocturnal animals including Woylies, Tammar Wallabies, & Quenda (Southern Brown Bandicoots). This is a special experience as many of the animals you will see cannot readily be seen in a national park. For more information and bookings visit the Karakamia Sanctuary website.
