Animal enclosures run down and not many actual animals. Saw some emus wallaby's kangaroos and an owl. Good spot to stop for a lunch break.



In response to advice from the Victorian Chief Health Officer about COVID-19, Serendip Sanctuary is open but operating with reduced hours of 9.00 am 3.00 pm until further notice. For more information, please visit


A lot od birds, emus and kangaroos. Free half-zoo. You can get close to the animals. Few walks available, 1-2h is enough.
