The Kangaroo Sanctuary in Alice Springs is the home of Brolga and his mob of Kangaroos, as seen on ‘Kangaroo Dundee’ (BBC / Nat Geo documentary). It celebrates the beauty of the Red Kangaroo- an Australian icon.


Brolga first established the baby kangaroo rescue centre in Alice Springs in 2005. He then went on to build his own wildlife sanctuary from 2009 to 2011. The Kangaroo Sanctuary’s mission is to educate and encourage people to rescue and care for kangaroos.

Brolga has just started building Central Australia’s first wildlife hospital with the help of kind donations and from visitors on tours of the Sanctuary. Donations are welcome to help him continue his dream of completing the hospital and to care for the baby and adult kangaroos living at The Sanctuary.

The Sanctuary can only be visited on a pre-booked guided sunset tour. Our kangaroos come first, and because kangaroos sleep during the day we don’t disturb them. This is why our guided tours are in the late afternoon…just when our kangaroos are starting to wake from their day-time sleep.

The Sanctuary is only open Tuesday to Friday for a guided sunset tour of approximately 2.5-3 hours. Bookings are essential (bus transfers included from most accommodation). Tours are limited to 30. We recommend booking in advance because the tours sell out fast!
