Chauncy Vale Wildlife Sanctuary is one of Tasmania's oldest and most well-known private reserves, as prized for its cultural heritage as its natural beauty. The sanctuary was once the home of celebrated children's author, Nan Chauncy, who drew inspiration from her home to capture the spirit of Tasmanian life.

With a long and intriguing history dating back to Aboriginal tribes and early bushrangers, Chauncy Vale Wildlife Sanctuary remains a place to learn, share and discover. The sanctuary forms part of a complex and diverse range of ecosystems, with a wide variety of stunning natural features accessible through a range of bushwalking trails. Learn about the sanctuary's heritage with a visit to the Day Dawn Cottage museum, former home of the Chauncy family. 

The sanctuary is home to a wide range of threatened species including Tasmanian devils, quolls, grey goshawks and peregrine falcons. Visit for a day or stay overnight in the RV camping area, complete with picnic facilities, barbecues and toilets.
