Why Travelers Choose This Tour
Visiting after dark means you can see animals you'd miss during the day.
So happy a friend of my husbands told him this was a must while visiting Melbourne. Very educational and a great way to see the Australia wildlife at night when they are active. Walking the paths with lanterns the Wallabies and Kangaroos come up to you and eat out of your hand. Flying tiny feathertail gliders and squirrel gliders hold your finger as they feed on the nectar in dish you're holding. Watch the Tasmanian Devils feed hear a male Koala call out to the females the Dingos howl the Southern Bettongs feed. Learn how most of the species are endangered and how conservation programs are working together to help give them a chance for survival. Small groups on the Moonlit tour, really a must see...beautiful facility.
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
