Wildlife Land Trust / Sanctuaries / QLD / Kangaroo Tales

Andrew and Kirsty Black are the owners of Kangaroo Tales, a property situated in Midge Point, approximately 300km south of Townsville, Queensland. The property is a dedicated wildlife sanctuary and rehabilitation site, also used for education.

The property is additionally registered with Land for Wildlife, and hosts campsites for visitors.
