Upgrade your visit to Healesville Sanctuary and say g'day to a kangaroo!

In this exclusive small group experience you will be accompanied by a ranger and go behind the rope to meet our Kangaroo Island kangaroos. Learn interesting facts about this iconic marsupial as you provide the kangaroos with their daily enrichment. There may even be the opportunity to observe how we train and condition our Kangaroos for this experience.

This is a small group experience that lasts a couple of minutes with each visitor booked, however please plan at least 15 minutes to meet your host and keeper, and hear the safety briefing.

Zoo entry not included. Be sure to also book your entry tickets for the same date as your encounter.
