Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park, Pearcedale

4.6
#1 of 42 in Parks in Mornington Peninsula
Cuddle up to a koala or hold a python at Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park. At this small sanctuary you can also encounter kangaroos, wombats, dingoes, and a number of colorful birds native to this part of the country. Evening visitors enjoy award-winning guided tours conducted by lantern light. These tours are environmental immersion experiences, during which expert guides take participants on walks through natural bushland. A variety of nocturnal animals, many endangered, can be seen up close once the sun goes down. Take this rare opportunity to experience the incredible natural world of Australia at night, and come into close contact with native wildlife that's just too shy to be seen by daylight.

  • Whilst visiting from the UK my friends and I went to the Moonlit Sanctuary for a day. We were there for about 3 hours and found it to be worth the $20 something entry fee. We wandered round looking at...  more »
  • I cannot praise Moonlit highly enough - we had a wonderful experience, and saw so many animals! We did a private evening tour because my sister uses a wheelchair and this would make it easier to get a...  more »

  • Fantastic hidden gem. Reasonable prices for unforgettable wildlife encounters too. Paid $35 to play with dingoes and cuddle a koala (also included pics with a python but the rain was bad so we skipped it). The staff were friendly and informative and happy to take lots of pics for you. The wallaby walk was fantastic; getting to hand feed them was a real highlight. Highly recommend
  • Pleasent little open Zoo which you can feed some of the animals.. Great for Kids of all ages. Well kept and a nice little Cafe on site. Is a bit pricey ($18 per Adult ) and some activities cost more.
  • It was a really lovely experience. The staff and volunteers were excellent. The birds and animals were housed in beautiful areas and we were the first to see the new lizard display. The place is clean and the cafe very readonably priced. 5 stars
  • Great place to see Australasian wildlife up close, feed wallabies and Kangaroos. The open enclosure makes it feel like the animals have freedom and the space is big enough for them. Ideal place to take kids or overseas visitors who are keen to see Australia's unique wildlife.
  • I also enjoyed visiting Moonlit Sanctuary with their variety of Australian animals, but as far as getting to this Animal Sanctuary by public transport for those who do't drive concerned is a inconvenient nuisance; cause the bus travelling there doesn't seem to go all the way to entrance of Moonlit Sanctuary only seem to drop passengers off halfway which the rest of way is 40 minutes walk for person visiting seem to have two options (1) walk that distance or (2) pay extra cash to taxi cab or organized bus tour to get there. Unfortunately Not everyone who uses public transport can always afford that extra expense/luxury.
