Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park, Pearcedale

4.6
#1 of 107 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. Plan my trip to Pearcedale with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • This was a great adventure, the staff are all Gold. Energetic and knowledgeable with the "reptile/bird/animal" they are chatting about. You sort of wander about and happen upon a "demonstration" of a ...  more »
  • The place is good for a relaxed day and you can watch the animals at close range and feed them like kangaroo, ducks and bird species. And it has a nice cafeteria. I fed kangaroo in kangaroo country and took beautiful pictures of koala while sleeping and eating. I also watched a different animal show for 25 minutes. I liked the time, but the show was kind of boring.

  • What a fantastic place! I've been many times before but not for a couple of years. Such an improvement to see all the money spent on new enclosures and exhibits. Not just a wildlife park, but a conservation park. You can see the passion the place has for all the different breeds and the wellbeing of endangered animals and birds. We bought a family membership and will be back many times! Thank you, our whole family loved being up, close and personal with so many of the animals!
  • We had so much fun here!!! We took a guided tour that included this as one of the stops, and we had a great time feeding and petting the marsupials, learning about the dingos and koalas, and observing the many different types of birds. We spent 2 hours here but I easily could have spent the whole day here. In addition to walking around the park on your own you can attend a show in the ampitheatre and learn more about the individual animals. We got food to feed the marsupials and they just come right up to you and ready out of your hand! Incredible experience and would definitely do again.
