Full description
Melbourne's award-winning wildlife park invites you to explore 10 hectares of bush-land, feed kangaroos and wallabies, pet koalas and enjoy encounters with colorful birds, reptiles, dingoes and many other animals, including endangered species. More than 60 species native to Australia reside at the Sanctuary, including about 80 kangaroos and wallabies that roam free in the bush, and others that are housed in large natural enclosures. Waterbirds populate the wetlands, and colorful parrots flit through the air, including the critically endangered orange-bellied parrot. The sanctuary also protects red-bellied pademelons, southern bettongs, spot tailed quolls, and Tasmanian devils. 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. Come visit the Sanctuary for a full day of presentations and animal shows that will be sure to entertain you and touch your heart!

A visit to the Moonlit is a good compromise if you have no way of seeing the animals in their natural habitat. The entrance ticket is cheaper online through GetYourGuide, I also recommend buying the experience with the koalas separately, even if it doesn't last long it is worth trying: you can pet a koala and take some pictures. We met Victor, he's docile and very soft! Explanatory talks on the animals present are scheduled at set times. There are kangaroos and wallabies in the wild, lots of birds and ducks, wombats and dingoes. If you are without a car you will need to get an Uber/taxi from Cranbourne station and vice versa (about 30 AUD).

The venue was a bit smaller than I expected and the kangaroos were kept in their private area where visitors cannot enter (unlike the other place i went to in Brisbane which let us get up close). And the koala encounter was slightly pricey since we were allowed to only pat his back while taking pictures and were given very little time. It was ok overall.

You get to feed and pat wallabies and kangaroos (it costs a little extra for food) and see other wildlife. They lay under the trees as it got warmer so go early in the day in summer. We paid to also pat a koala - that option wasn’t shown when we booked and I’m so glad they hadn’t sold out. So be aware of this. There were flies which bothered my kid but they provide spray. Food And gift store was reasonably priced.
