  • Definitely come here! What a fantastic experience!!! The staff members were lovely and informative. The sanctuary itself was so much fun to visit. We arrived right before it opened. Good thing because we saw the wombats walking around and they were curious about us. The later it got, the warmer it got and the wombats went to find a cool place to rest, making it difficult to see them. The kangaroo area was AMAZING!! They roam freely and we fed a bunch (both adults and young ones)! I recommend the tour of wombats, Tasmanian Devils and and koalas at 11:30.
  • Very nice people. It was cold when we went so many of the animals were snuggled in there nests. But we still had a great time. We would definitely go back.
