We are here to assist our wildlife. Our policy is to rescue, rehabilitate and release. We receive many calls per year, resulting in a range of animals coming into care each year.
To provide support to carers whilst facing the daily challenges involved in caring for our Wildlife.
To provide quality rehabilitation and care throughout all regions for injured or orphaned native Australian animals.
To educate the local community with regard to the many unique species of animals who inhabit our surrounding regions.
We operate within the guidelines of our licence and the standards as set out by the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection.
Proud Sponsors – 4t Consultants
A special thank you to 4t Consultants and to our Community of Carers who give of their time and money to help our native wildlife.
Go Fund Me is a Community initiative to contribute to our local Wildlife Carer Group in Rural Australia. All animals are nurtured, often hand-raised, and then released back into the wild. As an example, Womboroo Milk is $49 and lasts about a month, together with other out-of pocket expenses from our Carer Volunteers. All contributions go to the carers of our Native Australian Wildlife.
We value your help.

Family Nap Time
How wonderful to have a soft, warm ‘pouch’ set up, to roll into when it is nap time! Pouches are made and donated by various community groups and are very much appreciated by our little visitors.
If you find an orphaned, sick or injured native animal, contact our Hotline for advice so the appropriate treatment plan can be administered. Our list of licenced animals include: Macropods, Koalas, Possums, Wombats, Echnidnas, Birds.
Friendly little Echidna
With spines like a porcupine, beak like a bird, a pouch like a kangaroo, and lays eggs like a reptile they belong to the family Tachyglossidae (egg-laying mammals). Also known as spiny anteaters, they’re small, solitary mammals native to Australia, Tasmania, and New Guinea.
This little guy was extended a friendly helping hand.
Lost and Found
Excerpt from Facebook … “These ladies are amazing, we were travelling when we saw a dead kangaroo on the side of the road. We could see it had a Joey. We checked and took the baby from the pouch and took it to these wonderful caring people, who have now raised and released him. They kept me updated with pictures and when he was released. It was a lovely experience and I felt I had helped get him back to where he belongs, instead of the slow and painful death he would have succumbed”.
