Went there as a group of 4 adults and had so much fun feeding kangaroos & wallabies! We only got 2 packets of animal feeds which clearly isn’t enough, so I would recommend one packet of animal feeds per adult (or more if you like)....More

Closeup encounter with Koala, Barn Owl, Kangaroos n Wallabies. Although the entrance fee n the ticket for the close encounter with the koala n owl are not cheap, but it if is really for the cause of conservation, I believe it’s worth it.

We always take overseas visitors for an evening tour of Moonlit Sanctuary. It's an excellent way to meet native creatures you'd never otherwise encounter. Staff are knowledgeable and friendly and genuinely care about the animals and conservation.

Up close and personal with roos and wallabies, tasmanian devils and a great variety of birds, owls and reptiles. Ideal for our group of Indian visitors to experience some Australian wildlife close up.
