  • What a beautiful sanctuary. So peaceful and calm. The kids really enjoyed seeing and learning about the different animals. The cafe was lovely too and it was great to have several vegan food options. Definitely recommend visiting with or without kids.
  • Beautiful sanctuary only few kilometers from Merimbula. Feel the love & care for some of the most beautiful and unique animals that habit this gorgeous country. Well worth the visit & experience the serenity & natural beauty it has to offer.
