  • We went this place as family with 7year olds kid. Price is reasonable. Staff is very kind. A lot of kangaroos to see and feed. They are so friendly. We went this wildlife park after our trip from Puff...  more »
  • We were having a day out Morning/Hastings when we came across a sign Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife etc. on the spur of the moment we turned left towards Moonlit Sanctuary and spend 3 hours walking around...  more »
  • Tend to stop in the middle of a tour to Phillip Island from Melbourne Zoo. Kangaroo and bracken-of feeding can be approaching overkill and Koala photo shoot. Koala seems has banned a hug in the laws of the State of Victoria. Can you touch.

  • Took our 18month old son. He had a ball. Very hands on feeding the animals and birds. Exhibits were very good and we could get right up to the enclosed animals and birds so he could see them clearly. Lovely and clean with paths suitable for prams. Will definately go again.
  • Where do I begin............! Moonlit sanctuary is boring and overpriced ($21 adult). There is nothing unique or interesting that would set them apart from other animal sanctuaries. You could probably see more interesting animals in your own backyard. They have your stock standard animals ranging from kangaroos, a billion birds, lizards, wombats and emus. They have koalas which cost $15 to pat. There weren't too many people here because it really is that boring. My family and I literally walked around for 20 minutes and saw all the animals. Even our son was bored and he is only 3 years old. I would definitely not come back here again. I would also to add that the animal feed is a total rip off at $2 a bag. Other sanctuaries are $0.50 for a large bag.
  • Nice little spot, not too big bot too popular, but pretty. It has heaps of wallabies running free. Children friendly. Functions available (all ages) and the chance to cuddle (not hold) a koala!
  • Had a hosted kids birthday party here. The staff were terrific, and the tour very interesting. Kids had a fantastic time and so did we. Cheers!
  • It's our daughter's birthday and she had a blast because she get to spend time with the barn owl and snake!!! Plus the staffs are soooo friendly!!! She will go back when we visit Melbourne again!! 😘 8 THUMBS UP for us!!! 😍😍😍
