These animals are solid, strong and stocky but did you know that they can run faster than most, running 100 metres in 10 seconds!

In this personal encounter you will have the opportunity to meet these incredible native Australian animals and learn more fun facts about them from our passionate staff. Head into the wombat exhibit where you will have the chance to touch, pat and pose for a photo together.

Wombats are among the more than 2,000 sick and injured native animals treated each year at the Sanctuary’s Australian Wildlife Health Centre. Your wombat pat and play encounter will help Zoos Victoria continue fight wildlife extinction.
