About Banksia

Meet Banksia, a cherished member of the Sanctuary who, like her best friend Callai, arrived in 2019. At approximately 18 years old, Banksia brings her own unique charm and character to the Sanctuary. Banksia’s story is closely intertwined with Callai’s, as they are inseparable best friends who journey through life together.

Banksia possesses a loving nature that warms the hearts of those who have the privilege of knowing her.

Banksia can be a bit shy when first meeting new faces, a cautious instinct developed over her years. However, once she gets to know you, Banskia’s true colours shine through. Once the barriers of shyness are broken, she reveals herself to be a sweet, loving, and affectionate lady.

Banksia's friendship with Callai is a beautiful testament to the power of companionship.

Their bond, forged over time and shared experiences, is a source of comfort and joy for both. Their connection exemplifies the deep and meaningful relationships that develop between these beautiful animals.
