  • Took my daughter in January and she loved the place. Very friendly staff made it extra special. We both had a very interesting informative session and learnt a lot about native and endangered animals. Encounter time sessions are really great so kids can get very close to the animals and learn more about them. They have a nice restaurant as well with really nice pies and coffee. Awesome experience. Can't wait to get back there to do the night tour... Keep up the great work guys :D
  • Excellent! Took my 4 kids yesterday and they all had an amazing time, loved being able to hand feed the wallabies and kangaroos .Very pleasant setting, well maintained animal enclosures and well cared for, very healthy looking animals. Staff are friendly and enthusiastic. Great place to spend a few hours.
  • I have been there at leat five times. All of those there is something different. The management invest really well their money for upgrading the sanctuary and the animals are well feed and in good captivity. Don't go to a zoo go to moonlit. Try the koala encounter is amazing!
  • We were here about a year ago, I must highly recommend to try out the night tour. We were fortunate enough to be the only guests there but we were able to see the animals up close and were able to feed them. It was such a great experience definitely worth the price and would go back there again. I also learnt so much more about the native animals and the staff are so welcoming and informative. .
  • A great wildlife sanctuary that has improved every time I have visited over the last 6 years. Still has some room for improvement and it's perhaps a bit on the rustic side but that's all part of its charm. Have brought overseas visitors here a number of times and they always loved it. The direct contact one can have with some of the animals is great. Make sure you take your time and see all the resident animals some really interesting and rare species to be seen if you don't rush.
