Itinerary

  • Start this evening tour to Moonlit Sanctuary with a complimentary pick-up from your Melbourne accommodation. Located about an hour’s drive away from the city, at the top of the Mornington Peninsula, Moonlit Sanctuary is wildly famous as a tourist destination, especially when it comes alive with lantern-lit tours at night.

    Led by an experienced guide by lantern light, tour the sanctuary and experience an amazing diversity of Australian wildlife around you. You even get to feed some of these unique native animals directly by hand. Wander around the bushland as the giant Yellow-Bellied Gliders and the world’s smallest gliding animals - tiny Feathertail Gliders swoop from branch to branch on surrounding eucalyptus trees. Check outendangered quolls, pademelons and bettongs, looking for food. Listen to your guide as he shares his knowledge about the creatures you pass by.

    Spot rare animals that have become extinct on the mainland of Australia like the Southern Bettong and Tasmanian Devil. Witness many others such as the Spot-tailed Quoll, Squirrel Gliders and Yellow Bellied Gliders and hear the hums of nocturnal birds. Connect with the natural world even better by hand feeding wallabies and kangaroos and enjoy close encounters with Tawny Frogmouth Owls, nightjars and even Long Nosed Potoroos.

    This tour ends with a transfer back to your city accommodations.
