Tourism Central Australia

Find the answers to your questions about Alice Springs by visiting Tourism Central Australia.

The Kangaroo Sanctuary

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
