What a humbling, wonderful experience. It is immediately evident how much Brolga loves these creatures and how it is reciprocated from the Roos themselves. They come up and cuddle him, lick his legs and try and get his attention. After experiencing other tours in Alice...More

I strongly recommend a visit to this sanctuary. Brolge takes in rescued kangaroos who would have died after their mothers were killed by car or hunters. He does amazing work and most of the animals are released to the wild when they are ready. He...More

Chris was an exceptional host. We did the sunset tour. Best part was holding baby kangaroos. Also, seeing the kangaroos in their natural habitat, the outback. Must see excursion.
