A variety of species have temporarily called PilRoc Retreat “home” over the years – from eagles, to Whistling Kites, Pink and Grey Galahs, bats, bungarras, Nankeen Kestrels, owls, kangaroos, euros and Major Mitchell Cockatoos.

There is a catch – visitors be warned and prepared to muck in and assist when necessary!

Travellers are welcome any time at PilRoc Retreat and are encouraged to participate in the care of the native wildlife, learn about their requirements for survival and meet the dedicated carers Gail, Dave and their team of volunteers.

You may even get the wonderful opportunity to hand feed the joeys their bottles and the kids will love petting the older kangaroos or assist in helping the wildlife settle into their new home.
