More than 70 Australian species are waiting to meet you at Moonlit Sanctuary including many endangered species.

With wide-open spaces, Moonlit Sanctuary offers a safe environment that complies with social distancing recommendations while having lots to see and do.


If you have some junior wildlife lovers aged 7-14 and looking for some fun over the holidays check out the Keepers Club holiday program.

During this day-long program, kids discover what it’s like to be a wildlife park keeper as they prepare food, feed and make enrichment toys for the animals. In a day full of fun hands-on activities, they will get up close to many animals including dingoes and pythons and learn how their keepers work to keep them happy and healthy.

Places are limited so book early and make your junior keeper’s day!
