• Opening Hours

    The Sanctuary is currently open to the public at all hours. The only pedestrian entrance through the Sanctuary’s pest-proof fence is the public gate located directly behind the visitor centre building. Because the site is not yet pest-free the public gate remains unlocked. (Please note the pedestrian bridge and track from the car park are currently closed for repairs.)

    A donation for entry is requested by the charitable trust developing the sanctuary to support the project as a work in progress.
    Suggested donation is $5 per adult or $10-$15 per family.
    Over the coming year we will use these funds to develop additional visitor facilities.

    The visitor centre is staffed by volunteer hosts, and is open from 10:30am to 4:30pm on weekends.

    Please make sure your vehicle is not in the carpark after 5pm 
    Dogs are Prohibited.

    Please observe all warning signage.
