Did you know that echidnas hibernate during the colder months? This means that this experience is seasonal. We expect our echidna experience to be available again in either September or October 2024. Please feel free to contact our team with any questions.

The Echidna Encounter provides an opportunity for guests to meet one of Australia’s native icons, the echidna. Those participating in this encounter enter the enclosure with the wildlife keeper, and assist with this unique opportunity of feeding these animals while learning all about their adaptations and behaviours, and the importance of echidnas in our environment.

Tour Highlights:

  • Spend time with our echidnas and their keeper, inside the animal’s enclosure.
  • Help feed our echidnas, and observe the unique way they feed with their 15cm long sticky tongues.
  • Gain knowledgeable information about our echidnas, and how we care for them.
  • Learn about the importance of echidnas and their unique lifecycles.
  • Take the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about our echidnas, their adaptations and lifestyle, and caring for them in a sanctuary.
  • Take away a new appreciation for these wonderful animals, and learn about the steps you can take to help conserve them for future generations.
