Probably don't need another great review of this wonderful place but it was a highlight of our trip. The people here show a true passion for their work and my 14 year old son cradling a baby kangaroo will be a great memory for a lifetime!! Thank you

This was a great experience that renewed my faith in people. Everyone on the tour loved animals and in my opinion that makes them brilliant. Brolga was inspiring and informative, but the real stars were the kangaroos. From the orphaned joeys to the elderly Roger, the kangaroos renewed my faith in life and humanity. Thank you to all those who... More

This sanctuary is amazing and so is its owner Brolgna. We went on an organised trip.We were greeted by Brolgna a 6 foot 7 very handsome man, who is really dedicated to the Kangaroos. We were introduced to Roger who is 13 and a bit of a boxer with Brolgna, I can only describe them together as father and sun,... More

A reserved place with a tour of the Kangaroo Sanctuary outside Alice Springs, NT Australia means a pick up at your lodging by a very comfortable, air conditioned bus. You will be transported to the sanctuary while being treated to a flat screen showing some background on the efforts by & the reasons of the inspired creator of the sanctuary:... More

Our sunset tour with 'Brolga' and his kangaroo family could not have been better. He is charming and sincere and totally engaging. The group was small enough that everyone got a hands on experience if they wanted it. Plenty of photo opportunities and a beautiful sunset walk among the kangaroos. Loved every minute of it.

Oh my, what a fantastic experience. Brolga (Kangaroo Dundee) is a brilliant guy and he showed our group around the sanctuary. Brolga is doing some wonderful work with abandoned and injured kangaroos. Whilst we were walking around the sanctuary we were able to carry a baby joey in a soft shoulder 'pouch' which was a great thrill for us all.... More

Firstly I just wanted to go to get the good photo with the baby kangaroo. which I did. But after listening to bodega speak -which is not hard he is still a very handsome Aussie man- I was learning there is more here than cuteness. These babies would be dead if it wasn't for him and the only reason they... More

Definitely the best evening we have had here in Australia. picked up by coach and taken to the santury where we were greeted by Brolga, a wonderful guy who is so good with people as with the kangaroos. You can feel his passion for these animals as he gives you a guided tour of the santury. We learnt so much... More

Loved this trip. Brolga was an amazing host, making an effort to engage with everyone, and passing on his passion for kangaroos. Sunset was a beautiful time to go. Everyone gets to hold a joey and they come with us on our walk. Don't miss this experience.
