What You Can Expect

Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park Evening Tour

Moonlight Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park

Begin your evening tour with pickup from outside your central Melbourne hotel, then relax on the hour-long drive to the Moonlit Sanctuary just outside the city.

Purchase light refreshments (own expense) then enter the sanctuary escorted by your knowledgeable guide, who will provide useful information about the animals and birds you see.

Hand-feed friendly kangaroos and wallabies, and watch as your guide feeds the feisty Tasmanian devils. Learn about the facial tumors that are endangering this species, and meet the Tasmanian devils' tree-climbing relatives, the endangered spot-tailed quolls.

Then follow your guide deep into the sanctuary to look for southern bettongs, the miniature kangaroos that are now extinct on mainland Australia. Hand-feed these lovely animals while learning about their island lifestyle, and see the world's smallest gliding mammal, feathertail gliders, as they swoop from branch to branch in the surrounding eucalypt forest.

Hand-feed squirrel gliders with cobs of corn, and see if you can spot elusive potoroo marsupials and tawny frogmouth owls.

You might hear the unusual call of the endangered barking owl, and spot sugar gliders and the unusual bush thicknee ground-dwelling bird before meeting the sanctuary's family of dingoes and koalas on your insightful visit to Moonlit Sanctuary.

Note that the animals seen at the sanctuary can vary, according to breeding and management requirements.

As we entered the sanctuary, we were given a lantern and some feed for the kangaroos and wallabies that greeted us. As we walked around, we learned interesting facts about the animals and conservation. We also got to be touch and feed some of the animals. Wonderful experience. Would recommend.

My 4 year old and me really enjoyed this trip, the highlight was hand feeding the squirrel gliders and having a tawny frog mouth swoop over my head we also loved how the tassie devils act like naughty children when the sun goes down, a lovely intimate adventure for any age
