There is no fee to see the Kangaroos you can just give a donation if you like, if you donate AUD20 (which buys a tin of formula milk for the joeys) you can write a message and have it put up on their wall of fame. First you get to see the fully grown kangaroos and give them a bit of a snack and then Trevor or Josephine will bring out a Joey which they bottle feed. They really should charge for the experience as it is so good and they get no funding for looking after the 'roos they just operate on donations. They gallery is OK but it is the same as the rest of the aboriginal art.

It's one of those free experiences that you just won't forget... These people just work to save the kangaroos and they do the best they can. We fed the animals in what was the closest I have ever been to a kangaroo. The stories arw kinda of heart breaking. Some of them are found in with their dead mothers... Here they are taken care of of and loved... We have the chance to see that happen. Then, we were actually lucky to see a baby kangaroo, I mean, it could barely stand up... just amazing! They take car of the baby the same way a human mum takes care of a baby, feeding them every 4 hours. This is total comitment. You can buy painting and other australian artefacts from the gallery. At the end, I left a small donation in the box, it's up to you. They don't even insist on the donations, it's up to you. Really cool place...
