Where are we going today?

Calling all animal lovers!  Waminda Wildlife Sanctuary has been home to injured Australian wildlife for over 20 years.  Don't worry - once they visit the sanctuary they get better!  That's what they are there for.

They arrive at the sanctuary because people can't look after them anymore (which is why its so important to know you are ready for a pet!), or they have found them injured on the road.  They love all animals and will care for them like they are their own pets.

Have you ever wanted a parrot on your shoulder just like Captain Hook?  Or hold a slippery snake?  Would you like to enter a cage full of beautiful dingoes?  Here you can!  You can even pat a baby kangaroo (its called a "Joey")

All the animals are very friendly, because they have been looked after and loved. 

The sanctuary itself is very beautiful and well taken care of, full of lovely native flowers and plants, which you can learn about and understand why its so important to live sustainably.

If you want to do something really different, then stay overnight!  You can stay in a caravan, or a bus, or even sleep out under the stars - and you get a free delicious breakfast afterwards!

You can always bring your own Campervan too.

A beautiful experience!  Just make sure you call to book before you arrive.

Doing our bit

The whole sanctuary is for a good cause. These poor animals would have suffered if they hadnt been taken in. They rely on donations, so please leave what you can. The entry is free so they really appreciate anything they receive..
