The Pearcedale Moonlit Wildlife conservation park is a great way to spend a day with the kids or not with the kids.



Before you head into the Conservation Park spend an extra few dollars on some wallaby feed that will allow you to get up close, feed and pat wallabies and kangaroos.

Make sure you check the times of the dingo talk and feeding and also pay an extra few dollars to cuddle up with a koala for a great experience and an excellent photo opportunity.

As well as the dingos and koalas, you will meet lots of colourful birds, wombats, emus and a few reptiles.



As the name suggests, the sanctuary also offers night tours that begin at dusk, as some of the animals are nocturnal, so a night tour is a totally different experience.

Pearcedale is only 50 minutes from the centre of Melbourne and if you are staying on the Peninsula, try getting a Mornington Peninsula Attractions Pass that will get you entry to the Conservation Park and three other Peninsula attractions.
