Wildlife Sanctuary

The WOODSTOCK Wildlife Sanctuary grew from Scott Collett’s decision to conserve approximately three hectares of natural scrub to showcase some Australian native animals. An expensive vermin-proof fence was erected in 2007. After ensuring the sanctuary was free of cats, foxes and rabbits, some Long-nosed Potoroos, Brush-tailed Bettongs, Red-necked Wallabies and five male Swamp Wallabies and a Tamar Wallaby were introduced. In September 2007, four young Red Kangaroos were added to the sanctuary.

We hold supervised feeding times on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays for the Grey Kangaroos and some Wallabies. The Red Kangaroos and a few other wallabies are less tame. The wildlife numbers in the sanctuary will grow through breeding, and as more saved, hand-reared animals are offered to our care. All male kangaroos are de-sexed for safety reasons. Please see booking information

In May 2013, we had the pleasure to welcome five new kangaroos to the WOODSTOCK Wildlife Sanctuary. Eden, Maple, Rawnsely, Prairie and Abraham are five Western Grey Kangaroos who have been rescued and eventually introduced to our sanctuary. Together with our dear Western Grey Kangaroo, Dusty, they will be the ones meeting and greeting you at all times.

Conservationist Rae Campbell, likes to release rescued Koalas at WOODSTOCK. The trees are ideal for Koalas and the fence provides some safety while they are young. When old enough, the Koalas can climb the fence, to forage further afield.
