About our Kangaroo Tours
Our Kangaroo Tours are run almost entirely by volunteer members of Anglesea Golf Club. You’ll experience a unique chance to see our population of around 300 Eastern Grey Kangaroos “up close and personal”. Kangaroos are usually most active from late afternoon until early morning, resting in the shade of trees and shrubs during the day. Kangaroos are marsupials and grazing animals, so they love to eat grass, young shoots, heath plants and trees.
On your 25-minute guided tour, you’ll learn about their life cycles, habits and more! Our drivers will take you to suitable areas to disembark for photos and visit favourite locations, where kangaroos graze and rest. If you’re lucky, you might even see a joey (baby kangaroo), peeking from its mother’s pouch!
Current Covid-19 Protocols for Tour Guests
On arrival into the clubhouse, guests are required to sanitise hands and check in via QR code using their smartphone. All guests aged 18 and over will are required to be double vaccinated and will be asked to show proof of vaccination status. Tickets can be purchased online via the calendar below or in person at the Bar. Maximum seating allowed is for 12 passengers only.
For the safety of guests, the Club reserves the right to cancel tours on total fire ban days, strong winds, or when temperatures reach 37 degrees Celsius. Pre-booked tours will be refunded.
Guests must follow instructions from your driver before, during and after the tour. Our golf course can be a dangerous place when golfers are playing. Your tour driver will also give you advice on how close to get to kangaroos, managing children and noise levels. Kangaroos are very social animals, but it’s important to remember that they can also be quite aggressive if they feel threatened.
Tour Arrival & Clubhouse Facilities
We recommend arriving at least 15 minutes before your planned tour time, to grab a brochure or souvenir, check in with staff and use our amenities. Our Bistro overlooking the beautiful 18th Fairway is open 11am daily for coffee, drinks, light snacks, lunch and dinner. You may like to schedule a meal or coffee break, before or after your tour or even a game of mini golf! (We offer a 10% discount at the Bistro for every booking – simply present your booking confirmation email to staff when you place your order.)
*Please note tours do not operate on Christmas Day, or the mornings of Good Friday and Anzac Day.
