Staying at Fauna Australia, you have the added bonus of staying in our self-contained accommodation located within our private wildlife park grounds (not open to the general public). We are an attraction in our own right: no need for the kids to get bored in a motel. They can meander around and make some new friends. Ideal for international visitors and families eager to meet Australian animal's: up-close and personal, without the crowds! At night: Watch Fauna Australia come alive with Australia's nocturnal wildlife (don't worry they are all friendly and eager for some hand-feeding). You are able to view Aussie wildlife at their most active: night! We provide the torches. Meet some often heard of, but rarely seen natives such as: tiger quolls, potoroos, bandicoots, bettongs, sugar and squirrel gliders & much more. We successfully breed some of Australia's rarest species in our all important endangered breeding programs. We also have the much loved favourites in residence too: koalas, wombats, kangaroos and wallabies. Your Hosts Kirsten, Dean, Jaryd, Sophie & Chloe call Fauna Australia Wildlife Retreat home. Kirsten has a degree in Eco-tourism and Dean is a qualified Zoologist. Jaryd is only young but he was born on Steve Irwin's daughter Bindi Sue's 5th birthday.
