Moonlit Sanctuary

Attractions Pearcedale


Come on a magical, personally guided, interactive, “hands on" encounter with some very special endangered species & other bush creatures. Our Wildlife Conservation Park is in the heart of the Mornington Peninsula & Western Port Biosphere Reserve. Evening Tour – starts at sunset!


Over 200 animals of some 30 species make this sanctuary home. These include the Aussie icons, kangaroos and koalas, as well as many other species such as owls, dingoes, reptiles, birds, wallabies and possums.

Moonlit Sanctuary is pleased to announce the arrival of Gumnut, our newest and cutest koala. With Gumnut’s arrival, we can now have three koala presentations a day, and so we have had to revise our encounter and presentation timetable. The new timetable is as below:
