What a fantastic and very personal tour... Brolga greets everyone right off the bus, baby too in hand, and gives your a very tour of his sanctuary. Even with a group of 20-30 people he was able to talk to everyone, answer lots of questions, and give us all a personal and memorable experience of the great wildlife rescue work he is doing.

We visited The Kangaroo Sanctuary in August on a family holiday from the UK. We had our two children, aged 11 and 9 with us. I loved this place, it is magical!

This was one of the highlights of our trip through the Northern Territory for me, I booked it even before the plane tickets, six months in advance, as I didn't want to miss out on one of the only days we could go!

It totally lived up to expectations and is somewhere I will remember for a long time to come. We all got to hold the baby kangaroo that was on our sunset tour, my children both bottle fed another couple of kangaroos. Brolga is so passionate about these animals, it's contagious. The children loved it, they had big smiles all the way around and have mentioned it to everyone afterwards who asked about our trip. A big must-do! I would love to go again! Book in advance, as early as you can, it sells out quick!

This kangaroo sanctuary was the best wildlife tour ever! The tour was educational and inspiring. We were educated to rescue baby kangaroos from the side of the road from their dead mothers pouch. Brolga (the human kangaroo mum) gave us the opportunity to nurse baby orphan kangaroos (Howard & Ralph) He also took us for a long walk around his kangaroo sanctuary. We got good photos of the kangaroos and scenery. After the tour I was inspired to rescue kangaroos myself. I recommend his tour, For it is amazing.

Hold a baby kangaroo in a pillowcase pouch, pat a kangaroo on the back, feed special milk to young ones from a bottle. Learn about the plight of abandoned baby kangaroos whose mothers are left dead on the road. Take a spectacular twilight tour around the reserve and meet many characters, including the man who made this great place possible, Brolga. A friendly bus ride with Mick brings you to this spot for an incredible time.

Bus picked up us at our hotel at 4:30 pm, right on time. We enjoyed hearing Chris tell why the sanctuary exists and of his passion for the kangaroos. We also enjoyed holding a Joey. Saw dozens of kangaroos, many just a meter or two away. While there are no toilet breaks while you're with the kangaroos, there is a toilet available immediately before entering that area. We were dropped off at hour hotel around 7:30 pm. This was a fun night and one we'll remember for a long time.
