Potoroo Palace is pleased to announce it will be reopening in time for the July school holidays.
The native wildlife sanctuary reopens to booked visitors this Thursday, June 25.
Open for an initial four days per week, which will continue all year, Potoroo Palace is also planning to open every day during the school holidays, July and October. It is offering two daily sessions, one at 9am and one at 12.30pm.
Each session is two and a half hours long, and people will be able to wander and feed the roaming creatures, kangaroos and wallabies, watch feeding and talk to keepers, picnic under the trees and relax in nature.
Palace founder and local animal carer Alexandra Seddon said the sanctuary's "brilliant volunteers" have put in "boundless energy and meticulous care" to continue providing for the animals and to allow the reopening to occur.
"Wow! We survived!" Ms Seddon said.
"Some volunteers have come one morning a week or one morning a month, some come nearly every day. Together we are a community.
"We know that there is no ownership. We are custodians of the land, the plants the animals."
Meanwhile, Potoroo Palace is excited to announce ethical and sustainable food business Faraway Farm is taking over the cafe on weekends during this time.
Nicky Harris and Chris Aitken will be offering "grain free wraps, gorgeous raw treats and gut-lovin' kombucha".
Potoroo Palace's recently refurbished reptile house will be open to the pubic for the first time. Entry will be limited due to COVID restrictions, however it is treasure house of reptilian wonder for all.
