Melbourne’s award winning wildlife park invites you to explore 10 hectares of bush-land, feeding kangaroos and wallabies, petting koalas and enjoying encounters with colourful birds, reptiles, dingoes and many other animals including endangered species. At night, Moonlit Sanctuary comes alive with world-famous lantern-lit tours. Night birds are active, tiny feathertail, gliders and giant yellow-bellied gliders swoop around, and endangered quolls, pademelons and bettongs forage for food.

Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park is 25 acres (10 hectares). Moonlit Sanctuary is located 50 minutes from central Melbourne at the top of the Mornington Peninsula, and on the way to Phillip Island. Animals are protected by a 1.2 km by 2 m electrified predator proof fence. Over 200 animals of some 30 species make the sanctuary home. These include the Aussie icons, kangaroos and koalas, as well as many other species such as owls, dingoes, reptiles, birds, wallabies and possums. The following are excerpts from Smithsholidayroad.com: "Paths are flat yet a little bumpy in spots ( tree roots) but Cooper managed fine in his powechair independently. There are new boardwalks at the koala enclosure and through the Wallaby walk making access much easier. The viewing windows are open and large and perfect for wheelchair users to get a great view of the animals. "There is ramped access to the cafe and lots of places to sit and rest along the way if needed. Picnic tables are available throughout the sanctuary too. "2 accessible car spots on site. "The Accessible bathroom needs updating as the toilets are tricky to get into with a baby change table sharing the small space."
