We had a day to kill in Alice spring so decided to do the Kangaroo Sanctuary Tour. It was fun and I had a good time learning about the kangaroos while holding a baby. If you have time in Alice Spring I would highly recommend.

This was an amazing experience. Learning about kangaroo rescue, meeting many of the rescued kangaroos, walking around the sanctuary and holding a joey....all incredible. I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Alice springs or anywhere nearby.

Had a great time cuddling orphaned baby red kangaroos at the Kangaroo sanctuary. Brolga is a compassionate man who has dedicated his life to protecting these beautiful animals. His knowledge and down to earth friendliness makes this experience a must see when in Alice Springs.
