Great news! The much-loved Warrawong Wildlife Sanctuary in Mylor is re-opening by the end of the year.
It was bought by Perth couple David Cobbold and Narelle MacPherson in January 2017. They are the owners of Peel Zoo in Western Australia, and have travelled all the way from Dwellingup, Western Australia, to Mylor in South Australia – a 3,572 kilometre journey.
Originally founded in 1969 by Dr John Wamsely, the Warrawong Wildlife Sanctuary was last owned by Zoos SA, but it was sadly closed in 2013. The new owners transformed Peel Zoo in WA to a successful attraction with 45,000 visitors a year. They are hoping to do the same thing to Warrawong Wildlife Sanctuary.
Stay tuned for opening details.
