Great sanctuary cool environment, easy access and good value

It was a great experience, the encounters were so good. Clean environment. Not many kangaroos and Arena Show was not as good as it was 2 years back. Should bring it back to the same arena show. More kangaroos wanted. Should introduce emu and meerkat as well.

Great day with the kids at Moonlit Sanctuary. Will definitely come back.

We live only 5 mins from Moonlit sanctuary and have never been so booked as a school holiday activity for the kids. We had a great time and will definitely go back and book some of the other activities like getting up close to the koalas. Feeding the kangaroos was the highlight for my girls.

Good place. Nice food and facilities. Maybe better for night tours.

We went for a day tour. Fed kangaroo and baby wallabies and some ducks. Veggie burger with fries was good. Don't expect to see much wildlife. Maybe better for night tours. Early morning is better for day tours.
