Moonlit Sanctuary is only 50 minutes south-east of central Melbourne, at the top
of the Mornington Peninsula, and on the way to the Penguins on Phillip Island.
Melbourne’s award winning wildlife park, Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation
Park invites you to explore 10 hectares of bushland, meeting endangered species,
feeding kangaroos and wallabies, petting koalas and enjoying encounters with colourful
birds, reptiles, dingoes and many other animals.
BY DAY...enjoy hand-feeding
our gentle and curious wallabies and kangaroos, or cuddle one of our resident koalas.
You can meet our feisty Tassie devils, and learn the latest in the fight to save
this threatened species.
Catch one of our daily dingo talks, and get to know the characters in our dingo
pack. Book in for an exclusive adventure with dingos Blaze and Scorch. Enjoy a python
presentation or get up close and personal for a python cuddle.
Then pop over to the parrots and see orange bellied parrots, a critically endangered
species; then visit the stunning red-tailed black cockatoos, gang gang, superb parrots,
and the unique violet eyes of our bower birds.
BY NIGHT...embark on a guided lantern-lit
evening tour which winds its way through the home of many of the sanctuary's memorable
nocturnal animals. See feather-tail gliders, a nightjar, quolls, Tasmanian devils,
owls and possums. Meet squirrel gliders, bettongs, potoroos, to name but a
few of the creatures you will encounter at surprisingly close quarters.
