Visit the Sanctuary
Edgar’s Mission is located in beautiful Lancefield, Victoria, Australia.
Sanctuary tours are fun and informative, with plenty of opportunities to ask questions. We are not a petting zoo, but you’ll have the chance to interact with the animal residents if they choose.
Bookings are essential and tours fill up fast, so please book early to avoid disappointment! Tours operate from September to June (Winter is muddy and chilly!).
International and interstate visitors please email us to check availability (if date is sold out) or to book in advance.
For bookings over 6 people, a refundable deposit of $100 is required on all standard and short tours. Please email us to arrange.
After booking, we’ll send a confirmation email with information for your visit. If you do not receive this email, please contact us.
