Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary

National Parks and Reserves

Step back in time to see what Canberra was like before clearing and introduced predators took its unique woodland wildlife.

Enter the protective predator-proof fence of the sanctuary and watch Echidnas waddle, wildflowers bloom and rare marsupials hop.

Mulligans Flat is a sanctuary at the forefront of Australian wildlife conservation. Protecting the largest patch of Box Gum Grassy Woodlands in the world, they work by ‘restoring nature, transforming thinking and inspiring action for conservation’.

Here locally extinct animals like the Eastern Bettong and Eastern Quoll have been reintroduced to Mulligans Flat, after being absent from mainland Australia for 100 years. It is the only place in Canberra where you can see these critters in the wild.

So join in – book a Twilight Tour and help say no to extinction at Mulligans Flat.
