Kumbartcho Sanctuary & Fairytale Village

Eatons Hill

Kumbartcho Sanctuary is a northside Brisbane haven for native flora and fauna, featuring a fairytale village hidden within the six hectare property at Eatons Hill.

Kids will delight in looking out for the fairy post box, tooth fairy school, gnome hollow and to catch Wally the Wombat asleep in his den.
