You can easily spend the best part of a day wandering the shaded paths around the sanctuary that take you past Australia’s iconic and lesser-known wildlife. Meet the dingo packs, koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, wombats and echidnas and view Australia’s most dangerous reptiles. See an array of colorful and unusual birds such as emus, cassowaries, parrots, owls and eagles, and watch the world’s most elusive water animal, the Platypus, at play.
Entry to the sanctuary includes admission to several wildlife shows including the fantastic Spirits of the Sky held in the sanctuary’s flight arena. Here you can watch and admire several spectacular birds of prey as they show off their flying and hunting prowess and their colorful plumage.
With a mission to protect Australian wildlife, the sanctuary also contains The Australian Wildlife Health Centre, where you can observe the vets and nurses treating sick or injured wildlife in need of care.
