Overview
More
Step back in time and experience Australia's woodlands before clearing and introduced predators took its unique woodland wildlife. Enter the protective predator-proof fence of the sanctuary and watch Echidnas waddle, wildflowers bloom and rare marsupials hop. Mulligans Flat is a sanctuary at the forefront of Australian wildlife conservation. Protecting the largest patch of Box Gum Grassy Woodlands in the world, they work by 'restoring nature, transforming thinking and inspiring action for conservation'. Here locally extinct animals like the Eastern Bettong and Eastern Quoll have been reintroduced to Mulligans Flat, after being absent from mainland Australia for 100 years. It is the only place in Canberra where you can see these critters in the wild.

I’m a Canberra local and I love visiting Mulligans. It’s particularly interesting if you have an interest in biodiversity or ecology if you’re interested in the restoration of the woodlands and reintroduction of locally extinct species. Either way everyone should love to spot a bettong!!...More

We visited Mulligans Flat 3 years ago during the day, and although a lovely natural reserve, it wasn't the best time for wildlife. Family members booked us on this evening tour for our recent visit, and it was terrific. Our guide, Shoshona, was very enthusiastic...More
