The Patriarch Wildlife Sanctuary

Parks and Gardens

The Patriarch Wildlife Sanctuary is on the east cost of Flinders Island located on Lees Road, Lackrana between Middle and South Patriarch – you can observe wildlife close-up, it is run by a trust and maintained by volunteers. The A frame building has bunk beds and a shaded free gas barbecue area making it ideal for a picnic or camping location, however bring your own drinking water and firewood. The sanctuary is a habitat for abundant wildlife and bird life including wombats, wallabies and Cape Barren Geese. (donations are appreciated)
Patriarch Sanctuary offers up close day time opportunities to see and photograph native animals. You can watch wallabies by the dozen as they come out to feed as they roam free but are tame enough to eat right out of your palm.
The Patriarchs are three granite mountains on the mid east coast of Flinders Island. They stand out like giants from the low, healthy plain. When Matthew Flinders first saw them, he delightedly called them the Three Patriarchs.
