Local Legend, Chris ‘Brolga’ Barns, built the Sanctuary with the intention in mind for it to be a refuge for all kangaroos that have been raised by wildlife carers and cannot be released back into the wild e.g. too tame, injury but good quality of life.
In 2013 a documentary called Kangaroo Dundee was made by BBC UK / National Geographic USA and follows the interesting lives of our mob of rescue kangaroos and other wildlife. The documentary is shown in over 90 countries and is now up to its third series.
In 2015 Brolga built Central Australia’s first wildlife hospital with the help of kind donations and from visitors on tours of our Sanctuary.
You can visit the Kangaroo Sanctuary on a guided sunset tour from Tuesday to Fridays

Before- I was completely unsure and had no understanding of what was on offer. I had never been to Alice Springs. After- Loved it. So many options, I am very impressed
Before – A little negative. I thought it might not be worth the distance to travel to, nor the expense. After – I was blown away. It became clear very quickly that Alice Springs has SO much to offer and is a unique destination for events.

The team at the Alice Springs Convention Centre are world class, and are some of the most impressive event staff I’ve had the privilege to work with, they really did make magic happen … and made it look effortless along the way. Feedback from our delegates has indicated that this has been the most successful conference event in our organisation’s 20 year history … I am already being asked, “when can we go back?”
