Once in a life time opportunity
Jun. 2021
Thank you Thank you Thank you. The world would be such a better place if there were more people like you in it. I will never forget the experience I had nursing a baby Joey. A few years back I saw you on TV and finally had the opportunity to come and see Brolga and his Kangaroos. You have given so much of your life to every Kangaroo that has come through your door. I am in awe of such passion and dedication.

A must in Central Australia

Brolga is a wealth of information about kangaroos and their protection. It’s very clear he’s very passionate about his work. The experience itself is amazing, holding joeys, walking through bush land with the sun setting amongst kangaroos, it’s well worth a visit. The memorial for Roger demonstrates how much Brolga invests in the kangaroos, and how much Roger was loved by all.

Best night ever!
May 2021
One of the best evenings we’ve had. There were about 12 of us on the twilight tour. So easy being picked up by bus at our hotel.
Brolga greeted us and asked us a little about ourselves and there were some funny interactions which was a great start to a fun night.
Brolga is so passionate and knowledgeable but not lecturing. We learnt so much.
The baby kangas stole our hearts. The walkabout was great and my highlight was feeding a shy young kangaroo (Priscilla!) a warm bottle of milk.
Bliss for both of us.
Our bus driver was a lovely guy who offered to take photos of us with our own phones/cameras. It was wonderful to be walking in the bush in the twilight.
A memorable experience.
We all reluctantly left with huge smiles on our faces and full hearts.
PS: To our relief during our 1200 km + driving on NT roads we did not see one road kill due to the recent rains

True highlight of an already memorable trip. Fascinating insight into raising orphaned kangaroos, beautiful twilight setting, adorable joeys to cuddle, and Brolga’s passion and love for the animals beams out of him. Seamless hotel transfers and back home all before dinnertime!

Surprisingly amazing tour!
Apr. 2021 • Couples
We have been living in Alice Springs for years but never thought of checking out the place until this Easter. We didn’t know what to expect and were surprised how good the tour is. This place is soooo wonderful. Chris, aka “Brolga”, is an incredible guy for taking care of all the roos in need and gave us so much education about them. We learned a lot from him. I felt so overwhelmed with his passion in the roos. Thank you Chris and Dave,our driver, for an amazing evening.

In a way, Im grateful for the reset of covid. It makes you re evaluate life, what’s important. I used to put off travel. This place is an example. I’ve been talking about coming here for years. Well guess what, I finally made it here!

Absolute highlight of my stay in Australia
Mar. 2020 • Solo
I’d been wanting to visit the sanctuary for a very long time and it was the main reason for my trip to Australia. Thank goodness I managed to do this before having to cut my holiday short due to the Coronavirus crisis.
Brolga is absolutely brilliant, the love he has for his animals shines brightly. I learned so much about kangaroos 🦘 from my visit. What an absolute pleasure it was to see him and have him talk to a small group of us about the work he does to rescue these kangaroos, many of which, without his intervention, would have died.
We walked around the enclosure which is huge, and a real taste of the outback. He has worked so very hard for this.
I would highly recommend a visit, suitable for all ages. The ground is level but obviously natural. You would need to be fairly mobile to get around. May be difficult for anyone who is visually impaired as walking around after sunset in the bush, no lighting, it does get dark.
Thank you Brolga for letting us see the work you do, the love and care you give the animals and the educational talk you gave.
