Attended for the kangaroo feeding at 3.30. After parking our car we immediately found the owner to be very rude and hostile calling us ‘travellers’ and ‘foreigners’ with ‘no respect’ - considering we had only asked where we could park, we felt this was very...More

It is well worth the drive up to visit and take part in the 3:30pm feeding -- and don't forget to pay your $10 fee to help support the sanctuary!

I don't think so. But they have a WordPress website and also a Facebook page. Just Google them. I tried posting links to their site, but TripAdvisor seem to block this.
