Glad we went here to see Australia animals. It was a little disappointing that the animals were mostly asleep but the area was lush with plants and way through the property was marked and easy to follow. Really nice gift shop.
William Rickets Sanctuary is an offer to a fiercely protective nature lover who blended flora fauna and humans through his blended sculptures. What a treat to see his work exactly how he created and why he did so. Must visit.
Visited during the week when only a few other people were there. Peaceful, serene and a wonderful environment for quiet contemplation. Friendly park staff provided information and welcome briefing. Took our time and really spend time looking at each unique piece and the message the...More

I would think you must rent a car and meander around the area of the sanctuary as the small towns / villages are amazing. I doubt if public transit goes there but I am not from the area.

Well worth the journey!
