  • Good family time with nature, 6 ft kangaroos and giant size emus . Fascinating birds all in their natural habitat. Surprised to see the entry is free, must visit place in Geelong.  more »

  • One of the fantastic place for birdwatching. Many birdwatching sheds, where you can sit down, watching the birds in their natural environment, and taking photos. Also have walk-thru aviaries, where you can get closer to the birds. Just about an hour from Melbourne. Free entry, beautiful picnic area, with good toilet facilities. Good place to bring the kids and families, anytime of the year, for educational purposes or family day out. Gate close at 4pm, so make sure arrive earlier to allow at least 2 hours to walk around the Sanctuary.
  • Nice place for kids. We had good time there spotting kangaroos and emu. Since we could only finish the main walk, we are coming back.
  • Beautiful place that's never too busy or over run with crowds. Well maintained park and lots of animals
  • Lovely walk to see some animals in their natural habitat. Don't expect loads of animals, it's just an opportunity to get out in nature. Not far from the CBD, great to bring a picnic!
  • Love this place. Small park full of native wildlife, great for kids, BBQ area and it's free. My daughter thinks it's fantastic (and she's right).
