Full description
On this 10-hour tour of Australia’s native wildlife you will depart Melbourne mid-afternoon and travel to Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park. See the animals in their natural habitat during the day. Hand-feed kangaroos and wallabies and learn about the conservation work of this important sanctuary. The Eco-certified sanctuary showcases the famous and endangered faces of Australian wildlife, including southern Bettong, Eastern Quolls and rare fluffy Gliders. Get close to the adorable animals, with the opportunity to hand feed them. Watch and be captivated like never before.

Continue to Summerland Beach, home to Victoria's largest colony of penguins. Every night the lovable creatures emerge from the sea at dusk and head back to their burrows for the night.
