The Kangaroo Sanctuary

Evening

At The Kangaroo Sanctuary Alice Springs, we rescue and raise orphaned baby kangaroos at our large 188 acre Sanctuary. We run guided sunset tours so visitors can experience and enjoy kangaroos up close in natural bushland. Kangaroos are Australia’s iconic animal. Our tours are Tuesday to Fridays and must be pre-booked.

The Kangaroo Sanctuary is a place to celebrate the beauty of the red kangaroo – an Australian icon.

Our Sanctuary is located just outside Alice Springs (right in the centre of Australia) and is home to Brolga’s kangaroo family as seen on Kangaroo Dundee (a BBC / National Geographic documentary). On our guided sunset tour you will experience a leisurely walk through the Sanctuary’s 188 acre wildlife reserve where you might meet the kangaroo characters from Kangaroo Dundee and many others.

Our kangaroos come first, and because kangaroos sleep during the day we don’t disturb them. This is why our guided tours are in the late afternoon…just when our kangaroos are starting to wake from their day-time sleep.

The Sanctuary can only be visited on a pre-booked tour. We are open Tuesday to Friday and our tour is about 2.5-3 hours. Bus transfers to and from the Sanctuary are provided. Select the closest pick-up point to your accommodation. We recommend booking in advance because the tours sell out fast! Adult – $85 Child – $45 (3-17 years)
