Welcome to Platypus Eco Tours at Cumbungi Sanctuary
There are very few places left in South Australia where you can see and photograph platypus in a natural environment.
Platypus Eco tours offers you the chance to do this at Cumbungi Sanctuary at Mylor in the beautiful Adelaide Hills. This sanctuary has been designed to preserve the platypus and other endangered Australian native wildlife.
Come on a twilight Platypus Eco tour and you will be guaranteed* to see the platypus in its natural habitat. You will be amazed at how closely you can view this amazing animal as the platypus begins its evening feeding rituals.
Walk across our floating pontoon bridge and venture into our underwater observatory to see the important ecosystem at the bottom of our platypus ponds.
View the underwater world from a platypus's perspective and see the tiny glass shrimp, the yabbies and the insect invertebrates that make up the platypus's diet.
- Trained and experienced interpretive guides
- Exclusive platypus viewing deck and boardwalk
- Underwater viewing observatory
- Observe other native and endangered animals
- Small personalised tours with a maximum of 10 people
- Tours leave one hour before sunset (please confirm actual platypus tour time when booking).
If we don't see a platypus on your tour we will offer you another nocturnal platypus tour for free. That is how confident we are that WE WILL SEE A PLATYPUS.
During your Platypus Eco Tour you will see other locally endangered animals that once thrived in the Mt. Lofty Ranges. As you meander down through the Eucalypt forest, keep your eyes open for the endangered Southern Brown Bandicoots, Woylies, Potoroos, Rufous Bettongs, Tammar Wallabies, Red-necked Wallabies, Euros, Kangaroos, Quolls, Koalas and Possums.
Cumbungi Sanctuary is a privately owned 25 acre feral-free haven for native Australian animals located 25 minutes from the Adelaide CBD. We invite you to come and share this feral-free paradise where the Australian platypus and other endangered and threatened wildlife live safely.
Cumbungi Sanctuary Platypus Eco Tours enables you to view and photograph platypus in their natural habitat.
