Warrawong Wildlife Sanctuary is undergoing a major resurrection, thanks to the new owners, and a host of volunteers and supporters.

Warrawong was abandoned in 2013. However, the Sanctuary is now fully operational and offering a host of animal encounters, behind the scenes experiences, shows, tours, and camps. See our Meet the Animals page for a full list of experiences. Of course, if you can’t make it to the Sanctuary, we can being the Sanctuary to you. With Warrawong2U, we can bring a fascinating array of our Ambassador animals to your school, home, office, or special event. We bring the wildlife to you.

There are grand visions for the future, so your support is greatly appreciated.

You can follow our progress through our social media channels.

We look forward to your company as we reinvigorate Warrawong Wildlife Sanctuary: an iconic and significant part of Australia’s conservation history.
