I found the sanctuary quite by accident one day when I was travelling down to the Mornington Peninsular.
Little did I realize that I was to enjoy such a unique Australian wildlife sanctuary experience, totally different from any other.
Here is where a concern for the conservation of wild life is of utmost importance.
I encountered Australian endangered fauna in their natural environment.
This is an excellent family travel destination so very handy at the tip of the Mornington Peninsula.
The Unique evening Sanctuary Tours are held at dusk where you can enjoy a guided night trek around the bush area searching out nocturnal wildlife including some of Australia's most endangered species.

The Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park is situated on 10 hectares of bushland and wetland in Pearcedale.
Established in 2001, it is a top day trip from Melbourne and a "not to miss" experience for the whole family.
What makes this wild life sanctuary so different to other Melbourne zoos is the fact that you can book a Nocturnal Moonlit Sanctuary Tour and experience some amazing and unique creatures that spend their waking hours scurrying around in the dark.

Some of the animals in the Sanctuary can be found roaming freely around the enclosure. Others are housed in their own enclosures to keep them safe from predators.
