“A lovely experience”

Jirrahlinga Koala & Wildlife Sanctuary
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 23 March 2014

This place is a safe haven for abandoned and injured animals and a joy to walk round. It's so inspiring to see the great work that's done here. The highlight for me was seeing the koalas up close, but watching other creatures like wombats and echidnas which you may not easily spot in the wild was lovely too. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Went here with friends to help celebrate their sons birthday. Had a good day out, lots to see and do. First time going here and it was a delight. Nice to see the rescue work that these people do. Will go back again one day.

This is s sanctuary for sick, injured and abandoned wild life. Unfortunately, their patronage has fallen off in the past years and they will ultimately be forced to shut down. What a pity. We so enjoyed our experience.

My 20 month old loved it! So did I it was a great family day out. The staff were friendly and extremely accommodating. As a non for profit organisation with no government funding they do a great job.

We visited on a very windy wet day but were lucky to get a break in the rain for about an hour. It was lovely to be able to show my 2 1/2 year old and 10 month old all the Australian animals up so close! Staff were really helpful and even took us in for the koala experience early as the weather was getting wet again.
