For those of you who, like me just love heritage buildings, the cottage which was built in 1909 has been set up as a museum, contains a local history display and over 130 years of family history. You can join the treasure hunt or purchase cakes, jams, handmade crafts, plants, barbecue, baked potatoes, drinks and much, much more. There will also be an ice cream van on site. Why not buy an ice cream or some afternoon tea and wander through the bush tracks!

The Sanctuary is a registered charity and all donations are tax deductible. This fundraising day is a key event in the calendar to assist in keeping the work of the Sanctuary going.

Humbug Scrub Wildlife Sanctuary was created by Thomas P Bellchambers in 1905 as a haven for endangered wildlife. Tom lived on the Sanctuary with his wife Eliza and their ten children. The Sanctuary today is a haven for native animals which wander freely around the scrub, but is also for rescued animals from the local area. The Sanctuary is located 40 kms north east of Adelaide in a natural bush setting in the Mount Lofty Ranges.

Come along and spend the afternoon with and in nature, enjoying this amazing setting feeding the wildlife.
