The Kangaroo Sanctuary, Alice Springs

4.9
#3 of 16 in Parks in Alice Springs
Interact with Australia's most famous marsupials on a guided sunset tour of The Kangaroo Sanctuary. Stroll in the bushes observing the mobs of rescued kangaroos in their natural habitat, and don't miss a rare chance to cuddle a baby kangaroo. The sanctuary was featured in the BBC documentary series Kangaroo Dundee from 2013. Plan my day in Alice Springs using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

  • Had a great night with my Family with an old mate Brolga. This is not a zoo. This is about a true Gentleman’s love of animals in particular Kangaroos. Brolga is passionate about “all” animals and is providing a future for otherwise a likely death for Joey’s. You can be a part of his dream by taking the tour. Your support will ensure these Joey’s get a second chance at a natural life in the Bush. You will not be disappointed in anyway. If you can’t get to the tour you can donate to his cause to ensure these beautiful Joey’s get the chance in life they deserve. Remember these Joey’s Mothers met there fate through “road kill”. If you see Road Kill,pull up. There is a chance that there will be an orphaned Joey in her Pouch. Take that baby to the nearest town as there will be caters. Wrap the Joey in a pillow case and hold it as you would a baby.
  • I was always skeptical towards places with a lot of Kangaroos in Australia, until I found this place. I experienced magical moments in the Kangaroo Sanctuary at sunset today! Thanks Brolga and others for making this possible and giving 300+ kangaroos (a year!) a chance of survival. For those out on the road and seeing a dead kangaroo (as often in Australia) - please stop and check for a joey. Hold it like you would hold a baby and bring it to the nearest town. Every town has volunteers to nourish these little motherless ones. Visit to support the good cause!
