Mikkira Station Koala Sanctuary


"The Best Place to See Wild Koalas Up Close!"

Mikkira Station Koala Sanctuary is a 600 acre private property located 25 kms South of the town of Port Lincoln.

It used to be one of the first big sheep stations in the area after European colonisation but now it is part of a smaller property and home to over 100 wild koalas and other native wildlife.

The owners have allowed visitors and campers to enjoy this very pretty property for over 50 years.

It is now natural bushland and home to many rare and some endangered species of plants, animals and birds.

Ruins of when it was a sheep station remain, with stone wall sheep yards, chimney from the shearer's quarters, and a museum cottage that has been restored.

It is a popular place in the winter time, when it is open to the public, for picnics, bbqs and for camping. Also for groups and families to get together for a day out in nature where there is plenty of room.

Campfires are allowed when there is green grass, but dogs are strictly not allowed on the property as koalas are scared of dogs.
