Visiting the kangaroo sanctuary was definitely on of our highlights during out trip! I would definitely go again and highly recommend doing it if you have an evening in Alice Springs without plans! We visited several sancturays afterwards but the experience we had here was truly amazing! Thanks a lot Brolga!!!!

This place is a gem, we really enjoyed the tour of the sanctuary on 13th Feb 2018. Chris' passion for Kangaroos is evident! We had the opportunity to hold two joeys (Max and Bradley) as we went for a walk around the sanctuary and took in the surroundings. Highly recommended!

Everything that everyone else has written is true. I learnt so much and admire Brolga and his team of volunteers for their commitment and preparedness to put animals vs profit first. Respect for the animals is paramount and the mix between keeping a few roos that interact with humans to educate us, and the balance being returned to the wild is great. The opportunity to walk around this beautiful and natural piece of land was also amazing. The ironbark tree silhouetted against the sunset was a lasting memory. Please visit and support this venture......

Done this on our second day in Alice springs .You get picked up and driven to the sanctuary as you cannot drive there .Brolga is so passionate at what he does rescuing baby roos and it shows
In he's talking.You get to hold a joey while walking around he's reserve.A must do tour if you are interested in Kangaroos.

This was a highlight for me to meet Brolga and the gorgeous rescued kangaroos in this really special place that he’s set up from nothing and is so clearly passionate about.Its so necessary to give these little orphans a chance at living in a safe but really natural environment. He’s educating everyone who lives or travels in Australia to be aware that road kill out here often holds a little one in a pouch for days sometimes before anyone checks it. So please come to the Kangaroo Sanctuary and enjoy an walk through and a cuddle whilst walking round.
