Waimate Tame Wallabies
While visiting Waimate you must visit the town’s famous Tame Wallaby Sanctuary.
Gwen, the “Wallaby Lady”, has dedicated 40 years to hand raising and caring for orphan baby wallabies. This requires much commitment as they need constant warmth and food.
As visitors meander among the tame wallabies at their own pace, hand feeding them special pallets, they are fascinated by the animals gentle nature, thus allowing you hassle free time to feel at one with nature.
The park is located off the north end of Highway 82 on Bathgates Road close to Waimate.
Open daily from the 20th of September to the 10th of June from 10am – 5pm.
No eftpos or credit facilities are available. If you need cash the money machine is located on the main street of Waimate. Visit the shops while you are there.
