Admission-only Excursions: Preparing for your Excursion

Please inform the Education Coordinator of approximate numbers 1 week prior to your visit, at education@moonlitsanctuary.com.au

Final numbers will be checked upon entry and invoiced for accordingly.

What to wear

As we are primarily an outdoor venue, it is critical that students bring weather appropriate clothing. This includes closed-toe shoes and raincoats/hats should rain be forecast; warm clothing for cold days; and for warmer days, please instruct students to apply insect repellent in the morning as there are mosquitos in the area.

What to bring

Please bring lunches and drinks in small bags for students to carry individually. In some cases, an undercover seating area may be reserved to leave belongings for the day. This must be pre-arranged with the Education Coordinator education@moonlitsanctuary.com.au

Where to arrive

Instruct your bus drivers to parallel park in the Bus Zone, not across the main entrance.

To minimise congestion in the queues, line students up outside the entrance. The excursion Leader should enter through our Admissions building, join the queue and then inform the Admission staff of the name of your school/organisation. Inform staff of final numbers.

Then students should come through the entrance into the park all at once.

If a different entry point has been pre-arranged with us then please enter as previously instructed by the Education Coordinator.

How to behave

We wish all our visitors, including schools, to have a positive experience. So we ask that some preparatory discussion with your students is undertaken regarding respect and care for animals.

We anticipate that all attending supervising adults will actively support the students’ respectful engagement with our wildlife.

The linked Guide to Wallaby Walk and Species Identification may help in this discussion.

Please find the Code of Conduct in the attached document Preparing for your Admission-only excursion – Guidelines for Teachers.


We now have an app as well as a map to help you get around Moonlit Sanctuary.
