Potoroo Palace is open daily 9am - 4pm

We are a not-for-profit public wildlife sanctuary on Djiringanj Land just outside Merimbula NSW.


We are passionate about conservation, education and community.


Welcome to support us by visiting us!

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land, past, present and emerging. We have deep respect for the incredible care and knowledge of the land, for thousands and thousands of years.  

We aim to raise awareness of the natural world and to create an emotional bond between people, animals, water and plants. We want to show people ways of living with native animals and valuing the trees, the grasses and the microorganisms living in the soil.

We are located ten minutes from Merimbula NSW in the beautiful Bega Valley. Please visit us to see a koala, wander among the kangaroos, touch a snake, stroll through the cooling mist of the walk-through aviary and have lunch and really good coffee at the Blue Wren Café.

You can get up close to our kangaroos, emus and ducks who roam the park freely and hand feed them with an Animal Feed Bag that are  available for $3 at the entrance. 

No admission required to visit the Blue Wren Café. Welcome!


The documentary Being Change, made by award winning film maker Toni Houston, is about our founder Alexandra Seddon and tells the story of Cowsnest, Potoroo Palace and Panboola Wetlands


Potoroo Palace rely on donations, volunteers and visitors to keep caring for, and educate about, the precious planet. We do not receive any government funding.
