The Adelaide Dolphin Sanctuary

The Adelaide Dolphin Sanctuary is one of the gems of metropolitan Adelaide. Located in the Port River and Barker Inlet, the sanctuary is just 20 minutes from the city centre and features a 10,000-year-old mangrove forest. A resident pod of about 30 bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops aduncus) call the river home, while another 300 visit the area regularly.
