Get up-close to Australian animals at Moonlit Sanctuary
December 09, 2019
Melbourne's award-winning wildlife park, Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park, invites you to come and visit and get an up-close look at Australia’s amazing animals.
Explore our bush-land while feeding kangaroos and wallabies, petting friendly koalas and enjoying encounters with colourful birds, reptiles, dingoes and many other animals including endangered species. More than 60 Australian species are waiting to meet you at Moonlit Sanctuary.
Just 50 minutes from central Melbourne, Moonlit Sanctuary is the ideal place to learn more about the fascinating animals that call Australia home with our Keeper presentations and shows every 30 minutes. And don’t forget to stop at the Koala Encounters to snap a photo with one of our cuddly little eucalyptus-munchers.
At night, Moonlit Sanctuary comes alive with its world-famous lantern-lit tours. Night birds are active, tiny feathertail, gliders and giant yellow-bellied gliders swoop around, and endangered quolls, pademelons and bettongs forage for food.
Our Sanctuary is an ark for endangered creatures, and a showcase of their unique beauty. It is a living classroom which encourages children and adults alike to unlock the mystery of Australian mammals, reptiles, birds, fish, insects and amphibians in a natural bush setting.
Moonlit Sanctuary is located at the top of the Mornington Peninsula, and on the way to the Penguins on Phillip Island.
