Visit theSanctuary

The Byron Bay Wildlife Sanctuary is a family-friendly destination with something for everyone.  Open from 9am-4pm we have a comprehensive daily program of Keeper talks and interactive activities.

The Free Flight Birds every day at 12:15 is a special experience not to be missed.  

The Sanctuary is home to more than 100 incredible Australian wildlife animals, including kangaroos, a fabulous array of birds and reptiles including snakes and crocodiles, plus our resident personalities Manda the wombat and Arnie the koala. We have bunnies and guinea pigs and a Chick House with lots of baby chicks that can be handled.

We also offer a range of wildlife encounters that allow visitors to experience these beautiful animals up close.

Take a break and play the 18 hole golf course, splash in the waterpark or have fun in the tree house playground.

Stay for a meal and enjoy snacks or lunch from the Sanctuary café.  With a delicious selection of fresh food made from locally produced goodness, we cater for all dietary requirements.  You can always bring your own picnic and make use of our free gas barbecue facilities.

Breakfast is served from 9am , so start your day with a barista made coffee and our amazing wildlife.
