  • Our family of six took a private night tour of the Moonlit Sanctuary, and the level of activity was impressive. We all took turns holding a python, and then ventured outside in the dark, where we hear...  more »
  • The natural park was a positive experience, not quite as commercial as others we've seen. This had good space to show the animals that looked to have it good. The visit worth, and good coffee in the Café.

  • Small but very nice walk. Animals all over the place and of course you get to see the wallabies, kangaroos and koalas. Take the 2$ food pack they sell, it's fun to see all the animals approach you to eat! Can't help but feel a bit sorry for the animals though... Special thanks for the very friendly and helpful staff!
  • This was the highlight of my trip to Australia - being up close to the kangaroos, wallabies and especially the adorably cute joeys. Make sure you buy enough food to feed them - it's affordable and the food makes you very popular with the wild ones. It's quite an extensive property and so, pace yourself - and how much food you give to the 1st few kangaroos you see - there'll be a lot more later on that you'll want to feed. Glad to see such a wonderful sanctuary exists to see these beautiful animals up close. Way better than any zoos.
  • 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.
  • Best sanctuary. There are animals wondering all over the place. You can touch them if you want. The seemed well treated and happy. The price is worth. Take food with you, the food court is small and gets pretty busy during lunch time - and there are not so many options on meals.
