Stirling Travel Guide
We're heavy on the Down Under stories today but this weekend we read a great eco-hotel tip in The Australian, and we think it's something a bit special. Just outside of the South Australian capital, Adelaide, you'll find the Warrawong Wildlife Sanctuary, which is not just a wildlife park but also an eco-hotel.
Accommodation at Warrawong comes in the form of eco-cabins that sleep up to eight people, and include air conditioning, heating and a bathroom. You can pay for the cabin at the rate of A$75 ($66) per adult or A$195 ($175) for a family of four, or you can book the all-inclusive package which includes meals, a guided walk and an animal show for A$120 ($107) per adult.
Inside the Warrawong Wildlife Sanctuary you can find a hundred different bird and animal species including the chance to see a koala or a platypus (that's the weird-looking guy in the picture). There are also plenty of kinds of kangaroos and wallabies for the typical Aussie animal photos. You can take a self-guided walk or join guided habitat, wetland or bird watching tours.
