About ten minutes from Merimbula in the beautiful Bega Valley, savour the rare opportunity to see a koala, wander among the kangaroos, touch a snake, stroll through the cooling mist of the walk-through aviary, go for a ride on the mini train or have lunch and really good coffee at the Blue Wren Café.
You can get up close to our kangaroos, emus peacocks and ducks who roam the park freely and hand feed them with an Animal Feed Bag.
Potoroo Palace is a not-for-profit organisation passionate about caring for the Earth
Our aims are:
•To improve the habitats and wellbeing of the native animals already in our care
•To promote public awareness of their plight in the wild
•To educate the community about the importance of the conservation of our unique Australian native animals and plants.
Many of the animals at the sanctuary are native to the Merimbula area. We have several Long-nosed Potoroos, Macropods such as Eastern Grey Kangaroos and a Swamp Wallaby, flying-foxes, quolls, echidnas, wombats and an assortment of reptiles and possoms too. Emus and even Dingoes can be found in the surrounding area. Koalas and Long-nosed Potoroos are very rare here now, but were once abundant. People come from all over the world to Australia to see our native animals.
