Nestled upriver on the banks of the South Pine River, Kumbartcho Sanctuary is a 6-hectare site allowing visitors to explore and appreciate rainforest ecosystems. Previously home to the Bunya Park Wildlife Sanctuary, the Kumbartcho grounds include old features such as a koala view deck, dam and environment centre.
Inside the centre, visitors can engage with a range of displays including a 4 foot long fish tank and nocturnal display. The centre is free of charge to enter and we encourage families to utilise the craft activities and books on offer.
