Divine experience walking with kangaroos and cuddling gorgeous joeys. It was a privilege and honour to meet Brolga, Kangaroo Dundee my hero. Anyone who rescues animals is my hero. A must-visit if you are ever in Alice Springs to support Kangaroo Sanctuary.

Simply wonderful! It's worth every penny to learn about the kangaroos, take a walk with them, and hold rescued joeys in their "pouches". Kangaroo Dundee is a kind and interesting educator and zoologist. Not to be missed.

Everything about the Kangaroo Sanctuary Alice Springs is centred on the well-being of the kangaroos. The environment is beautiful and Brolga's passion for the kangaroos is a wonderful thing to experience.

Hi Brolga, My husband and I will be in Alice Springs from Friday 18th August to Wednesday 23rd, and we are hoping we can do your tour on the evening of the 18th. Will you be taking bookings for that evening, and if so, are there specific pick up points? I loved the TV series about your work, and am looking forward to the tour if we can do it. Regards, Chris Whitesman
