We went as part of a tour and we expected it to be just another animal sanctuary but it exceeded all our expectations. The passion and care is almost tangible. This has to be a must on everyone's visit to Alice Springs

This was an excellent tour I would highly recommend. Really liked getting to hold a joey and meet roger, who is a beast.

Brilliant sanctuary where you even get to hold a joey. These rescued kangaroos are well looked after by a very caring man. Brolga, himself , takes you round and the kangaroos cone to him. He has a story about each one. I canno recommend this sanctuary high enough. Better than 5 star. It has been the highlight of my trip... More

Sure it's cool to visit a place featured in a tv series and meet the person and animals you have seen on television. But what an experience! To personally hear from such a knowledgeable and dedicated person and see (and even hold) the wonderful rescued kangaroos, was worth every penny of my side trip to Alice Springs (I had to... More

A must do for anyone visiting Alice Springs. Even for an Australian I couldn't get over the love and affection shown for our native fauna. Love it, keep up the amazing work.

Loved every second of our visit. Brolga was so committed to his sanctuary and he was really interesting to listen to. We strolled round in the early evening and he knew his kangaroos by name. We held a joey who was the most gentle little creature. Brolga has no interest in becoming a commercial venture, his Roos come first which... More

Wonderful to meet Brolga & his mob & holding little Bobby & Becky for me & my husband was the highlight of our trip to Oz. Walking through his land with a gorgeous setting sun & loping roos around us while he chatted with passion about his venture was an experience we'll always remember. Thank you Brolga.

We found this "diamond" online. What a wonderful experience while in Alice Springs. You must experience it near sunset because the kangaroos are just waking up. We spent about 2 hours walking around the grounds and learning so much about the rescued kangaroos. They are not only rescued, they are rehabilitated. Kangaroo Dundee was an extraordinary and committed guide, founder... More
