What to expect
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. At night, Moonlit Sanctuary comes alive with world-famous lantern-lit tours. Night birds are active, tiny feathertail gliders and giant yellow-bellied gliders swoop around, and endangered quolls, pademelons and bettongs forage for food. Night Tours can be booked directly with Moonlit Sanctuary and Wildlife Conservation Park, $20.00 supplement to be paid direct.
Things to look out for
Make sure you plan your day ahead of time so you don't miss out on the exciting keeper talks, such as the koala talk at 12 pm or the wombat training at 1 pm daily.
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.
