This is a wonderful little sanctuary that is in the process of being enlarged. The walks within the sanctuary are easy and relatively flat, but I would still recommend taking an available map from the entrance with you. Lots of birdlife and wildlife to be...More

I loved it. I learnt so much and got to see 10 wild bettongs as well as other wildlife. It’s so great to see conservation at it’s best correcting the destruction we humans have caused. The wine and truffle flavoured Brie weren’t bad either.

A fascinating but chilly night at Mulligans flat knowing we were the only people on the Australian mainland that were watching Bettongs (rare marsupials) in the wild made it all the more special. We watched these Bettongs search and dig for truffles. The wine and...More

Andrew took us on a tour and it was fantastic. It was really well organised. Andrew told us a lot about Mulligans Flat and about the animal life there, including the bettongs. We had lovely wine and cheese in the woodshed. We then went out...More

Truly enjoyed the twilight tour and would go back on holiday to Canberra just to experience again. Our guide Andy found nearly every mammal we were hoping to see plus a few spiders. I have never seen such an outstanding conservation effort in any other...More
