Moonlit SanctuaryAn award winning wildlife park, Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park vonsists of 10 hectares of bushland, where visitors can meet endangered species, feed kangaroos and wallabies, pet koalas and enjoy encounters with colourful birds, reptiles, dingoes and many other animals. At night, Moonlit Sanctuary comes alive with its popular lantern-lit tours. Night birds are active, tiny feathertail gliders and giant yellow-bellied gliders swoop around, and endangered quolls, pademelons and bettongs forage for food.
The Sanctuary is an ark for endangered creatures, and a showcase of their unique beauty. It is a living classroom which encourages children and adults alike to unlock the mystery of Australian mammals, reptiles, birds, fish, insects and amphibians in a natural bush setting.
Bunyip Tours, Grayline, Private Tours Victoria and Epicurean Fine Food and Wine Tours all run day trips and longer tours which stop at Moonlit Sanctuary on the way to Phillip Island. These tours all depart from Melbourne.
Location: 550 Tyabb-Tooradin Road, Pearcedale. Moonlit Sanctuary is only 50 minutes south-east of central Melbourne, at the top of the Mornington Peninsula, and on the way to the Penguins on Phillip Island.
