Activities

While we're all learning how to do "emu social distancing", we've made some changes to our daily program.

Our Rangers are always roving, ready to answer your questions and to help you to find your way around.

NOTE: Such is the nature of a wildlife sanctuary, things can happen 'on the day' which are unplanned and unexepected, so every time you visit, there are likely to be different things going on.

Ranger-led animal encounters throughout the day are included with your Entry Ticket. There are also some behind-the-scenes activities that are optional extras and do cost a little extra.

 

Ranger-led animal encounters included with your Entry Ticket:

9:30 GATES OPEN

You're welcome to take your map and head out along the Animal Loop to say "good morning" to the animals and the rangers as they go about their morning work. Or explore the bush tracks! Our first scheduled ranger-led encounter is at 10:20, but you're welcome to explore until then. The animals are always happy to see you.

10:20 Emus & Kangaroos gathering for their morning scatter feed (we never hand feed our wild animals, that's why they are so gentle with people)

11:00 Dingoes - head over to the Dingo Camp and see what they and the rangers are getting up to

11:40 "Waffles" the "not-so"-miniature Pig has his 3rd breakfast, for Christopher Robins fans, that's "Elevenses"

12:20 Echidnas' lunch time

1:00 Snakes, Lizards &Turtles - meet the reptiles

1:40 Flying Foxes & Kookaburras - the rangers are servicing the Bat Camp and can tell you about these fascinating creatures

3:40 Tasmanian devil - it's feeding time for "Bucky"

4:00 Kangaroos & Emus gather for their afternoon scatter feed (we never hand feed our wild animals, that's why they are so gentle with people)

4:30 GATES ARE CLOSING SOON, THANK YOU FOR VISITING

 

Thank you for caring!

Our animals need your help. Their home, our sanctuary, is funded by you. Without your support, we could not do what we do. When you buy a ticket to visit or for a personal experience, 100% of what you pay is spent on our conservation work.
