SECRET CREEK SANCTUARY
THE ONLY NATIVE WILDLIFE SANCTUARY IN THE BLUE MOUNTAINS
OUR MOST VULNERABLE SPECIES
Secret Creek Sanctuary has been in existence since 2001 and is situated in an idyllic setting just 2 minutes drive from the centre of Lithgow on the edge of the Blue Mountains but it feels like you are miles away from civilisation.
We have a vegan cafe on site where you can enjoy delicious plant based treats while you take in the surroundings. Head over to the cafe website for up to date information on their opening hours and any functions.
***COVID UPDATE: We are currently closed***
We aren't running tours right now and the sanctuary is closed to visitors. We are so grateful for all of your ongoing support during this very tough year. We still have lots of important conservation projects that we are working on and look forward to sharing these with you in the coming months.
Thank you - Trevor and the Sanctuary team
The overall goal of Secret Creek Sanctuary is to save endangered native species so although you will see some of the animals if you visit during the day most are nocturnal so you won't see them all unless you book a tour.
Tours are only done at dusk and with a guide but self guided interpretative walks are currently being developed.
Many animals roam free in their natural environment within the sanctuary. Of an evening you will see Brush-tailed Rock-wallabies, Long-nosed Potoroos, Rufous Bettongs, Parma wallabies, Red-necked Pademelons, Red-necked Wallabies, Swamp Wallabies and Emus roaming safe and free. Animals held in purpose-built facilities include our predators: Tasmanian Devils, Eastern Quolls, Spotted-tailed Quolls, Alpine Dingoes and soon you will also see Koala and Mountain Pygmy Possums in their purpose-built enclosures.
TOURS ARE BY APPOINTMENT ONLY— book here online or contact Trevor on 0408 695 958.
Personalised guided tours are conducted at dusk on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays: $18 adult, $10 children.
