Create an itinerary including The Kangaroo Sanctuary
Interact with Australia's most famous marsupials on a guided sunset tour of The Kangaroo Sanctuary. Stroll in the bushes observing the mobs of rescued kangaroos in their natural habitat, and don't miss a rare chance to cuddle a baby kangaroo. The sanctuary was featured in the BBC documentary series Kangaroo Dundee from 2013. Plan my day in Alice Springs using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

  • This was educational and heartfelt. It is not a zoo. It is a sanctuary for rescued kangaroos. You have to book the tour and there's a transfer from and to your hotel. The tour goes for about 3 hours.....  more

  • I found this place on TripAdvisor and as usual, it did not disappoint. In fact, so far it is my favorite part of a 3 month trip. This is a sanctuary, not a zoo. Chris started this place on his own...

  • Great tour by the owner, Chris, or Brolga. We got to interact and see several of his sanctuary kangaroos while learning all about how they live. We also learned how to save a Joey plus got to hold one for a while. Definitely would go again.
  • This is a must do when in Alice. Highly recommend doing the tour, it’s 100% worth the money and it is so great to see people with such a strong passion helping out local wildlife. Must do!
