For the third year running my husband and I have been privileged to be able to visit this very special place. It is without doubt the best attraction to visit in Alice and Brolga's determination to individually welcome each visitor to his beautiful Sanctuary and make sure that everyone of whatever age can fully enjoy this unique experience shines through....

This was one of the best experiences of our trip to the Top End. To walk amongst the Kangaroos in the sanctuary as the beautiful outback sunset colours glowed and learn about how to successfully rescue kangaroos was an inspirational experience. To feed and pet this beautiful creatures was an absolute delight!

This was an a amazing afternoon in the outback with Brolga and his Kangaroos. You really feel welcome to Brolga and his home and he is sharing his knowledge about the kangaroos with you in an informative way. If you like Kangaroo dundee you really would like this.

I've just got back from this tour tonight and had to write this review straight away. My 11yr old daughter has loved all things Kangaroo since she was small but being from the UK our experience of them is limited! When the BBC made the documentary about this place Kangaroo Dundee, she has talked about going there. The tour happens... More

WOW !!!!! What a amazing person you are Brolga! This tour is just AWESOME!!!! The trip to the Kangaroo sanctuary was a massive highlight to my Northern Territory trip. Brolga has a great touch with people and he wants to inform people as much as he possibly can about Kangaroo's. To the kangaroo's Brolga is like GOD! And how lucky... More

My wife loves Kangaroo Dundee and his show and there was no way we would have not done this tour. Brolga makes you all feel very welcome to visit his 'home' and all his friends. You will all get to hold a baby Kangaroo (My wife had my turn !). They have a bus that picks you up and gets... More

The Kangaroo Sanctuary is an incredible place. It is the life's passion of "Kangaroo Dundee" Brolga. He built the sanctuary to house the rescued joeys which have become his life's work. It is a beautiful place and he speaks with knowledge and passion about the joeys and kangaroos. He is currently building a kangaroo hospital on site to expand the... More

This was the best experience of my life thus far! I had been meaning to check out the Kangaroo Sanctuary since my first trip to ASP in 2012 and what they say is true: "third time's a charm". I was surprised at how little my knowledge regarding the care for kangaroos was, and was glad to have participated in the... More

On the coach to the sanctuary we watched the program Kangaroo Dundee staring Brolga and it was weird to get off the coach and meet him face to face. He is fantastic and so dedicated to rescuing kangaroos. You can only visit on certain days and on an organised tour with about 20 or so people. Brolga explains what he... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Brolga spoke so clearly, making sure all questions were answered. The kangaroos were so friendly and Brolga made sure everyone got to see them at their best. It was also extremely educational. Well worth the cost.
