Native Animal Educational Sanctuary Potoroo Palace is a wonderful place to see and learn more about our native wildlife.  Say hello to a koala, wander among the kangaroos, touch a snake, spot a birdie or 3 in the walk-through aviary or have a close encounter with any number of other species - including animals native to the Merimbula region.

Winner of Trip Advisor 2018 Certificates of Excellence for 6 consecutive years, Potoroo Palace proudly put animal welfare and conservation at the the top of their priorities.


A wonderful stop for children, 'Potoroo' is also fascinating for adults with an interest in the natural environment, wildlife or conservation.   For those with mobility issues a train tour is ideal. You'll be driven around the park accompanied by a keeper/guide making several stops. Your journey can even be tailored to your specific animal interests.  Choose from tours of 15 minutes up to an hour.

Finish off with a delicious lunch or coffee & cake in the Blue Wren Cafe, which is open everyday with no admission fees and be sure to ask about "Wombat Wednesdays" - only happening in the off peak months!
