Hi Justyna This is a lovely review, but it is for another sanctuary I believe. We are based outside Alice Springs. We have lots of lovely kangaroos you can see up close, but we don't have a shop at all. The shop sounds great. But...More

This is a great opportunity to learn more about kangaroos and actually hold a baby as in the picture. You actually walk inside the fence right where the animals are housed. You can actually walk with the owner and feed them.
