Nangak Tamboree Wildlife Sanctuary - La Trobe University

NANGAK TAMBOREE WILDLIFE SANCTUARY is La Trobe University's Outdoor Laboratory

The Nangak Tamboree Wildlife Sanctuary is 30 hectare area of River Red Gum Grassy Woodland, dedicated to the conservation and restoration of native Australian flora and fauna.

The Sanctuary was set up in 1967 and has been regenerated from a degraded farming landscape into a river red gum grassy woodland reminiscent of what this area was like when the traditional custodians of this land, the Wurundjeri, still resided in this place. Over time the Sanctuary has transformed into a leading educational facility.


Come for a self-guided walk during our opening hours or book in for a Twilight Tour and discover what creatures call the Sanctuary home.


Come and learn more about one of the longest running ecological restoration projects in Australia! Get hands on with nature through our educational activities, suitable for schools, playgroups, community events, scout groups and even birthday parties!
