Meet endangered Australian native animals in a natural bushland setting,
during the day or on our unique and magical evening walks.
We are open during the day from 10am to 5pm. Get close to koalas,
kangaroos and dingos, as well as colourful native birds, including
cockatoos and waterbirds. See reptiles, frogs, and interesting insects
in our visitor centre. Have a coffee in our cafe overlooking our
wetlands and grazing kangaroos.
You can visit Moonlit Sanctuary on a Mornington Peninsula Attractions Pass, which also gives admission to
Ashcombe Maze, Cape Schanck Lighthouse, and Point Nepean National Park,
as well as bonus offers. Passes may be purchased at Moonlit Sanctuary or
on our website.
Come close to animals now extinct on mainland Australia, like the southern bettong, eastern quoll,
and red-bellied pademelon. Aussie animals are active after dark, even
kangaroos and koalas are more active. A knowledgeable guide gives an
entertaining and interesting commentary.
The entire bush area is enclosed in a fox-proof fence, and some animals are at liberty within
this area. Others are contained in enclosures for purposes of
conservation breeding. Tours take one and a half hours and start from
dusk each evening. Come on one of our public group tours, or enjoy a
private tour, ideal for the wildlife lover or photography enthusiast.
Tours run every night.
