This award-winning Park is home to more than 200 animals of some 30 species. Residents include kangaroos and koalas as well as owls, dingoes, various reptiles, wallabies and possums. Rare and endangered animals that have bred at the center include southern bettongs, eastern quolls, Julia Creek dunnarts and squirrel gliders.
You will be able to hand-feed kangaroos and wallabies, have a photo-opportunity with a koala and learn about the conservation of these loveable animals. Lunch is included in your tour and will be provided at Moonlit Sanctuary.

Your last stop is at Summerland beach, home to Victoria’s largest colony of Little Penguins.
